Finding the right wheels for your car can be surprisingly difficult. The aftermarket has infinite combinations of materials, designs, finishes, and colors. Simply making the choice can be a challenge, and you never really know if you got it right until putting them on the car.
A new set of wheels will transform your car, but this also comes with the burden of keeping them clean and presentable. Your fresh aesthetic won’t last very long in daily traffic before it loses its luster to brake dust, dirt, road tar, and dozens of other contaminants.
If you like to spend a couple of hours every other Saturday cleaning your wheels, by all means, go wild. Here at Torque Detail, we like our wheels to look brand spanking new at all times, but wheel cleaning is not on our fun jobs list.
This is where ceramic coatings come into play.
Ceramic coatings have been around for a while now, and many of you are probably aware of how well they protect automotive paint from UV rays, dirt, chemical attacks, oxidation, water, and other contaminants.
However, what many people don’t realize is that ceramic coatings aren’t designed exclusively for painted body panels. You can apply them on your windshield or other glass, plastic trim pieces, chrome bumpers, AND your wheels.
In this article, we’ll talk about ceramic coatings on wheels - why you should do it and how to get started.
