Powder coated wheel care

Recommended Posts

Just had a set of OEM 20 inch rims black powder coated gloss not clear coated. Haven't decided on tires yet but was wondering what's the best to prolong the finish. I've read that cleaners and polishes should be avoided. I was think maybe waxing. Anyone have experience with this and what is recommended? Thanks for your suggestions in advance.

I would ask who ever did your powdercoating.

Not sure where you like to buy detailing products. I buy some from Autogeek, they have a product called Detailers Pro Series Wheel Glaze. It is essentially a wax with anti static properties. Keeps wheels cleaner longer and helps protect your finish.

Your not really going to hurt powder coating it is tough. But you don't want to use anything abrasive either as it won't polish back to a shine easily like paint does. Allot of wheel cleaners have harsh chemicals that is why people don't like then oh dark colored wheels they can etch the paint/powder coating. A good wax before installation a coat when you clean will keep crud from sticking to them.

After I got my tires mounted on my fresh powdered wheels I cleaned up the wheels an put a mequiars sealant front an back. Cleaning them with soap an water works great. Water jus beads up on them
