So, we get a lot of requests to professionally detail and ceramic coat wheels and tires. Ceramic coating your wheels is an EXCELLENT idea, especially if they are super-expensive or custom. Road grit, grime, and brake dust can be destructive to your wheels and tires, so ceramic coating them is just common sense, right?
Now, most wheel & tire cleaners are mostly made up of degreasers. What’s the worst enemy of your ceramic coating? Degreasers. About 90% of the tire and wheel cleaners on the market are mostly….. degreasers.
Seems like a conundrum, but it’s really not. Adam’s Polishes makes a product that will get your wheels and tires sparkly clean and get rid of these contaminants without trashing your coating. Introducing Adam’s Wheel and Tire Cleaner. Boring name, an incredible product.
