When it comes to the maintenance of the car, the owners often think of the car paint and the engine first, and the wheel hub is the most easily overlooked place. But you must know that the visual impression of the wheel’s appearance is the first. It is this seemingly inconspicuous place that can properly reveal the taste of the owner, so don’t neglect the wheel when you are equipped with a car.
When there are stains on the surface of the hub that are difficult to remove, use a professional cleaning agent that tends to remove stains gently and effectively, reducing damage to the aluminum alloy surface. In addition, there is a metal protective film on the hub itself, so pay special attention to the use of paint brighteners or other abrasive materials. Care should also be taken during driving to avoid scratching the hub caused by scratches. Once scratches or deformations, they should be repaired and repainted as soon as possible.
How to fix the scratches?
There are six steps in the specific steps of repairing: the first step, check the scars, if not injured to the inside of the hub, you can simply repair, use the paint dilution, wipe the scar around, remove the dirt; the second step, the deepest part of the scratch It is very difficult to remove the dirt, then you can use a toothpick to completely clean it; the third step: in order to prevent accidentally applying the unrelated part of the paint, it is best to carefully stick the adhesive tape around the scar; the fourth step, finishing The tip of the brush is coated with a lacquer, and the lacquer is slightly shrunk after drying. It is best to apply a little convexity. In the fifth step, it takes about one week to completely dry after painting. After drying, apply the soapy water on the water-resistant paper to smooth the surface. In the sixth step, after rubbing with water-resistant paper, use a mixture to wipe out the light, and then wax.
Daily maintenance can not be ignored
Daily maintenance is also essential. When the temperature of the hub is high, it should be naturally cooled before cleaning. Never use cold water to clean it; otherwise, the aluminum alloy wheel will be damaged or even deformed. And affect the braking effect. In addition, cleaning the aluminum platform gold hub with a cleaning agent at high temperatures will cause a chemical reaction on the surface of the hub, which will lose its luster and affect the appearance.
When the hub is covered with hard-to-remove tar, if the general cleaning agent does not help, try to remove it with a brush, but do not use a hard brush, especially an iron brush, to avoid damaging the hub surface. Some experts have introduced a remedy for removing tar: that is, using medicinal “active oil” to rub, you can get unexpected results, car owners may wish to give it a try. In addition, when the vehicle is located close to the waterfront, the hub should be cleaned to avoid corrosion of the aluminum surface by salt.
