Anodized Rim Precautions

Due to wheel temperature increase during use,spots,discoloration and dullness will occur
when tire shine and coating cleaner are not properly removed.Wheels are unrepairable if left
in this condition.Thorough rinsing with water when
cleaning is recommended to preserve shine.

Aluminum alloy wheels contain a thin film and coating,and are susceptible to corrosion and
discoloration if not properly maintained.Wheels are unrepairable once discoloration occurs.
