And so it begins… the frosty mornings spent de-icing cars and de-misting windows before carefully navigating the icy roads near Beaconsfield to avoid slipping and sliding all over the place. It won’t be long before temperatures plummet and the gritters come out in force, which is why you need to ensure your alloy wheels are prepared to prevent corrosion setting in and causing damage.
To keep road users safe it is inevitable they must be gritted in sub-zero weather conditions, the sad truth is the damage salt can do to your pristine alloys. Grit from the roads can cause galvanic corrosion when the salt gets into cracks or chips present in your alloys.
To protect your wheels make sure you clean your wheels thoroughly and protect them with an appropriate sealant. It’s advisable to regularly clean your wheels during winter with a gentle wheel cleaner to ensure you remove brake dust or salt from the roads.
