Alloy Wheels High Wycombe

The problem with winter is the need to salt roads to avoid cars skidding and sliding in icy conditions. Great from a safety perspective, but brutal on your alloys; causing long lasting damage in the form of galvanic corrosion.

Galvanic corrosion typically affects alloy wheels with stone chips or kerb damage and proceeds rapidly to corrode the alloy when salt from the road presents itself.

There are several ways that can help protect your alloys from salty roads in winter:

  • Prior to winter ensure your alloys are thoroughly cleaned and protected with an appropriate wheel sealant.
  • Take time to clean your alloy wheels regularly (at least weekly) in the winter months with a non-aggressive wheel cleaner. You want to ensure that no trace of road salt or brake dust remains, which helps to accelerate corrosion during the ice cold months.
  • If you have sustained kerb damage of substantial stone chips to your alloys but want to avoid shelling out for new ones consider alloy wheel refurbishment; you would be surprised at the damage we can rectify to ensure wheels look as good as new again.
