A freshly washed car will keep your ride looking brand new and in top condition. Having a set of dirty wheels will definitely impale your car’s good looks. The most important thing you can do for your tires is to take good care of them.
Never allow brake dust and road grime to set in for a long period of time. Otherwise, it can damage the metal and will be more difficult to remove. Due to consistent heat and friction, the brake dust can become highly destructive especially since you probably drive your vehicle on a daily basis.
