Smart Tips to Keep Your Truck’s Aluminum Wheels Clean

Maintenance of a truck fleet is a very tough job. Trucks are mostly driven in adverse conditions and varying terrains. Regular maintenance becomes necessary for proactive identification of any problem that may have developed in trucks. Since these are mechanical beasts, even mundane jobs like truck painting, tightening lug on wheels etc. have to be done carefully. This also applies to polishing the aluminum wheels.

Enhancing Appearance of Aluminum Wheels

With the passage of time the wheels of trucks worn out and start looking old. This contributes towards the dull look of the truck. Everyone wants their truck or bus to look pleasing for customers. Shiny and polished looking wheels can enhance the appearance of your truck. The better your fleet looks the more you are noticed and the impression of a well-maintained fleet is engraved in your customer’s mind. Buffing aluminum wheels requires smoothing of irregular metal surfaces of the wheel. Even though the surface looks smooth, it actually is rough, jaded and edgy.

While the buffing process seems easy, it can be ineffective. If you use too much compound, the cutting action is less effective because the surface is greasy and over lubricated. This can be seen by the presence of a black compound that shows up around the lug and vent holes.

When you invest in a VIS-Polish, you can find that ‘sweet spot’ of wheel buffing and don’t have to worry about this manual job. Call 866-847-8721 today to learn more.
