The maintenance of the wheels that the owner easily overlooks How to repair the scratches

When it comes to car maintenance, car owners often think of car paint and engines first, and wheels are the most easily overlooked areas. But be aware that the visual impression of the wheel's appearance is the first. It is this seemingly inconspicuous place that can show the owner's taste properly, so don't ignore the wheel when equipping the car.

When there are stains on the surface of the hub that are difficult to remove, a professional cleaning agent should be used. This cleaning agent can often remove the stains gently and effectively, reducing the damage to the aluminum alloy surface. In addition, there is a metal protective film on the wheel itself, so special care should be taken not to use paint brightener or other abrasive materials when cleaning. Care should also be taken during the driving process to avoid scratching the "hard injuries" caused to the hub. Once there are scratches or deformations, they should be repaired and repainted as soon as possible.

How to repair scratches?

There are six steps in the repair process: the first step is to check the scars. If there is no damage to the inside of the hub, you can simply repair it. Use paint thinner to wipe the scars and remove the dirt; the second step is to scratch the deepest part It is difficult to remove the dirt, at this time you can use a toothpick to thoroughly clean it; Step 3: In order to prevent the irrelevant parts from being painted, it is best to carefully stick the adhesive tape around the wound; Step 4, finishing Brush tip, coated with modified paint, the paint shrinks slightly after drying, it is best to apply a little convex; the fifth step, after painting, it takes about a week to dry completely. After drying, apply water-resistant paper with soapy water to smooth the surface. In the sixth step, after wiping with water-resistant paper, use a mixture to shine, then wax again.

If you encounter deep scars, the main point is to observe whether the metal surface is exposed. If you can't see the metal surface, it will not rust, you can apply the modification paint intently. Use the tip of the pen to go up little by little, and wait for the paint to dry completely. To avoid this phenomenon, the car must be diligent to wash the rim when it is first used. The vehicle driving every day should wash the rim at least once a week. After washing it with water, wash it with a detergent and sponge. , And then rinse with plenty of water.

Daily maintenance can not be ignored

Daily maintenance is also indispensable. When the temperature of the hub is high, it should be allowed to clean after natural cooling. Never use cold water to clean it; otherwise, it will damage the aluminum alloy hub and even deform the brake disc. And affect the braking effect. In addition, cleaning the aluminum hub with a cleaning agent at high temperature will cause chemical reaction on the surface of the hub, tarnishing, and affect the appearance.

When the tar is hard to remove on the hub, if the general cleaning agent is useless, you can use a brush to try to remove it, but do not use a hard brush, especially an iron brush, so as not to damage the surface of the hub. Some experts introduced a remedy for removing tar: that is, using medicinal "living oil" to rub, you can get unexpected results, car owners may wish to give it a try. In addition, when the area where the vehicle is located is close to the waterfront, the wheels should be cleaned frequently to avoid corrosion of the aluminum surface by salt.
