Do make use of a separate sponge for cleaning the tires and wheels, that could have sand brake dust and other particles which could contaminate the finish of your car. A mild soap and water solution could be effective; however, if they are not then a specific wheel cleaner might be needed. Make sure the cleaner works with the kind of finish (paint clear-coat, clear-coat and so on.) that is used on the wheels. A powerful formula that is designed specifically for the mag wheel, for example may cause damage to the clear coating applied to the wheels used on the cars of today. To be on the safer side, use an item that’s marked as safe to use on all wheels.
Don’t use a tire dressing product. They’re often advertised as adding shining appearance to tires. Some products claim to cleanse the sidewalls, eliminating the dirt and oil which could degrade your rubber with time. Certain products claim to function as an anti-sunscreen or blocker on your tire, which can reduce the negative effects of aging caused by Ozone and UV light that cause rubber to become hard and brittle which can lead to cracking. However, the tire companies have told us that the use of aftermarket products is not necessary to protect tires and the shine is just cosmetic. Bridgestone claims that their tires are infused with antioxidants and waxes inside the tire to shield them from environmental damage. The appearance of the tire may become dull with time, but it is due to the waxes moving onto the surface, which actually protects the tire.
Treat your car to a regular waxing to protect your car from weather and to give it the same shine as new. (See the automotive wax guide for some tips and suggestions about all kinds of car wax.)
Hey there, follow the general guidelines you should wash there?
Do not wash your vehicle in hot temperatures, such as immediately after you’ve driven or when it’s been parked outside in the sun’s rays for some time. The heat accelerates the drying process of water and soap, rendering washing much more challenging, and increasing the likelihood that deposits or spots will develop.
Also, don’t keep using the sponge after it’s been dropped on the ground without completely cleaning it. The sponge may catch dirt particles, which can scratch paint.
Do wash the surfaces thoroughly before beginning to wash to get rid of particles of dirt and other debris that can cause scratches. As you begin, you should concentrate on one area at a given time, thoroughly washing and thoroughly rinsing each one before moving onto the next. Begin at the highest point and then move through the vehicle. Make use of a hose that does not have a fitting and let the water flow across the car from the top to the bottom. This results in a sheeting effect which helps to prevent the pooling of water.
Do apply the car wash solution to an emulsion with lots of suds, which provide plenty of lubrication for the surface of your paint. Also, rinse the sponge regularly. Using an additional bucket to wash the sponge prevents dirt from mixing with the wash water that is sudsy.

Do not let your vehicle air dried out,and do not expect your drive to accomplish an efficient job. Both will leave watermarks triggered by the minerals present in hard water. Also, avoid using an abrasive cloth or any another material that could cause hairline scratches to the paint.
Do not use a the chamois (natural and synthetic) or soft terry towel. It is recommended to wipe the water off instead of moving the towel or chamois across the paint.However, make sure that the rubber is soft and does not collect dirt which can cause scratches.
