Wheel and Tyre Cleaning

We always like to start with the wheels. They're generally the dirtiest part of the car, so get these done first!

Half fill your Wheels bucket with water, then add one capful of Nanolicious Wash and agitate with the pressure washer wand or jet spray from the hose. Spray Wheely Clean evenly over the wheel surface (one wheel at a time), in a sweeping motion and allow it to dwell for 30 seconds to 1 minute until you see the purple reaction. If the purple reaction begins to go yellow, you've waited too long and the product will no longer be as effective on brake dust. For more stubborn dirt and grime build-up, scrub the wheel face with a suitable wheel brush like our Little Chubby or Nuts and Guts dipped in the Wheels bucket. To get into the wheel barrels, we have our Flat Head brush, which is perfect for this job and for getting in behind tight calipers.

For tyre cleaning, wet the tyre first, then spray Orange Agent directly onto the tyre. Immediately begin scrubbing the tyre with your Little Chubby brush, or other suitable stiff bristled brush. Rinse thoroughly to remove all of the Orange Agent residue.

Once the wheel is cleaned to your satisfaction, rinse it off thoroughly with either your pressure washer, or the jet spray on the hose nozzle. To add some super hydrophobic protection to the wheels, to make them easier to clean next time and so the brake dust finds it harder to stick to the wheels, spray Wet Dreams evenly over the still wet wheel surface, then immediately rinse off thoroughly to add a protective layer. Continue around the car until all four wheels are completed, doing one wheel at a time.
