Step one: Making soapy water

First up, you just take one bucket out of the two you will be using and fill it with water and then the vehicle wash. Depending on how many gallons of water you are using, you add one cap full of the vehicle wash per gallon of water.

Buy premier vehicle wash.

Step two: Rinsing

With that out of the way, you are just going to rinse off your wheel; preferably with a pressure washer, but you can also use a garden hose. 

Step three: Washing 

Now you are ready to begin washing your wheels

Step four: Polishing

This is where your wheel starts looking like it just rolled off the assembly line. You are just going to need your Carnuba wax in spray bottle form and 2 microfiber cloths. Using your spray-form Carnauba wax (a mix of polymer and carnauba wax), you spray all over the wheel and take a microfiber cloth and just work it all over the wheel, a bit like how you did in the washing segment. Your second microfiber cloth comes into play for wiping off any residue left over.

Buy carnauba wax.


After that, your wheels should look fresh again. Keeping up with wheel cleanliness is going to make you happier, it is going to make spectators happier and you are going to be getting the most out of the investment you slammed down decent money for. If possible, it is recommended to do this process at least every 2 weeks. Doing it after washing the body of the car is going to kill 2 birds with one stone. After all, we all strive for efficiency! Happy cleaning!
