There is no doubt that alloy wheels make your car look more aesthetically pleasing. But it’s a painful experience when you hear the scraping of your wheel against a kerb and have to get out and assess the damage. But damaging the appearance of your alloys isn’t the only an issue to be faced; damaged alloys can lead to other consequences too, to name a few:
- If your alloys aren’t cleaned regularly brake dust can build up and erosion can occur. This can cause cars to lose control or corrosion can cause tyres to deflate.
- The abundance of potholes in the roads these days can cause your alloys to crack or cause the wheel to bend out of alignment, which undoubtedly requires a new tyre needing to be fitted.
- Washing your alloy wheels when they are hot can even cause the wheel to crack.
