Wheel and tyre cleaning

Depending on what type of wheels and brake pads you have on your classic car, you can use either the Wheely Clean if you enjoy driving (like us) a little spiritedly and make a bit of brake dust, or, as we've used here, Orange Agent if it's more just built up dirt and grime. After cleaning, we seal the wheels with Wet Dreams to add some shine and protection, and make the wheels that little bit easier to clean next time.

Half fill your Wheels bucket with water, then add a capful of Wax Wash and froth the mixture up inside the bucket with a short blast from the pressure washer. This ensures the Wax Wash is well mixed, and creates a lovely micro emulsion of suds that smells a bit like a banana milkshake!

With your Wheels bucket set up next to the wheel with your brushes handy in the bucket, spray the Orange Agent or Wheely Clean directly onto the wheel. If you'd like to clean the tyres at the same time, spray Orange Agent directly onto the rubber too. Leave it to dwell for only a short time (30 seconds or so), then start by scrubbing the tyre with the Little Chubby brush, then clean the outside face of the wheel. If you'd like to clean the inside barrel of the wheel, use the Flat Head brush and get in there right the way around the inside of the wheel barrel. Rinse the brushes out in the Wheels bucket as needed.

For the smaller or intricate areas around the wheels (wheel nuts etc), use the Nuts and Guts brush from the Foursome brush set.

Once the wheels and tyres have been cleaned, pressure wash them down thoroughly, then spray a few sprays of Wet Dreams straight onto the wheel face, then pressure wash it straight off, to add some super easy protection and a lovely shine in one step.
