The Importance of Wheel Detailing

The Importance of Wheel Detailing

When you visit a professional car wash you will notice that they split up their services into two main categories, car washing and car detailing. While many people think the two are synonymous, car washing and car detailing are two different things. Car wash services are generally shorter in duration and usually focus on the exterior of a car, whereas car detailing is more thorough and can focus on both the exterior and interior of the car.

What is wheel detailing?

Wheel detailing refers to any and all detailing services that prioritise wheel washing and protection. While often overlooked, wheel detailing is one of the most important car detailing services.

Why is wheel detailing so important?

Your wheels are your connection to the road and as such, they are subjected to a lot of dirt and grime. Over time, wheels collect brake dust, a collection of adhesive and carbon fibres that corrode from the brake pad and tiny metal shavings from the rotor. If brake dust is allowed to sit on your wheels for long periods of time, it can corrode the coating of your hubcaps and wheels, leaving small holes in the metal and reducing the lifespan of your tires.

Why should I invest in professional wheel detailing?

Without the right equipment it can be extremely difficult to get rid of all the dirt and dust from your wheels. Even if you manage to get all of the dust off, it is difficult to dry between all the nooks and crannies and avoid water marks. That’s why professional wheel detailing is so important.
