They are responsible for taking you places safely and hence require utmost attention. As a car owner, you must be aware of the basic tyre maintenance aspects which include right tyre pressure, tread wear signs, etc. Hence, in this article, we will focus on the less-discussed element i.e. care and hygiene of your car wheels or car tyre rims. Indian roads are filled with dirt, debris, potholes and other surface ripples. Hence, not only tyres bear the brunt but also the wheels sacrifice equally to ensure you a safe and comfortable drive. Day to day driving on open roads leads to the accumulation of dust on the brakes. And if not addressed timely, it may lead to early deterioration of your priced car alloy. How do car wheels deter? Whenever the car brake is applied, bits from the brake pad get off and stick to the rim, which gradually forms a residue coat that worsens with time. Thus, once the brake pad is worn-out during braking, brake dust starts to accumulate on the car wheel. If not treated in time, the brake dust accumulation will soon result in oxidization, which means rust or corrosion. If neglected for long, the dust may result in stains first and then develop into rust. Also Read: Alloy Wheels Vs Steel Wheels: Which Is Better?
