Alloy Wheels: Winter Survival Guide

Just as we were expecting spring, it looks as though winter will raise it’s cold and problematic head again. Let’s disregard the chaos it inevitably brings to the roads, schools and airports in this country and focus on how brutal it can be on our motors, specifically, alloy wheels.

The problem with snow and ice is that it creates the need for the gritters to come out and salt the roads, which from the perspective of safety is great, but galvanic corrosion and the long lasting damage to alloys is not so desirable.

You can take steps to protect your alloy wheels from the salty roads by cleaning your alloys thoroughly and using a wheel sealant. Following this it’s advisable on a weekly basis to clean your alloy wheels with a non-aggressive cleaner, removing all trace of road salt or brake dust. Leaving remnants of this kind can accelerate the process of corrosion in the winter months.

Of course, the effects of the elements take their toll you can always get help from us, here at Auto Medics.
