Tip #1

Unfortunately they will require regular cleaning. Break dust can corrode the paint, leaving a dull look to your alloy wheel even when cleaned or polished.

Tip #2

With machine finished wheels and colours such as silver it will become quite clear when break dust starts collecting on the alloy wheel, whereas black alloy wheels it will be harder to spot!
