How to clean rims?

To clean your rims it's best to go to a car wash or a place with filtered water. We're bikers, but we're also careful about the planet 😉

Rinse & wash the whole

Cleaning the rims


Protect and shine

Good to know

Make sure you stand outside the car wash grate, it would be a shame to drop the bike and damage it while you're trying to make it look good.

1. Spray

Use Wheel Cleaner

Start by wetting your rims with warm water, no more than 30ºC / 86ºF.

Then, in the shade, spray Wheel Cleaner. This will dissolve grease, oil and mud residues without damaging the paint and varnish. It will be your best ally to clean effortlessly your painted, chromed or varnished aluminum rims.

2. Let it work for 1 to 2 minutes maximum

3. If necessary, scrub with a sponge or brush

For the dirtiest rims you can scrub with a clean sponge or a soft bristle brush. And if one cleaning is not enough, don't hesitate to do a second one.

4. Rinse thoroughly with clean water

And wipe the rim to dry and shine.

Wheel Cleaner will lay down a protective film on your rims that delays the build-up of new dirt.


For a perfect result and without marks, we advise you to go little by little. Spray Wheel Cleaner on half a wheel, let it work and rinse. And then move on to the other half!

And before leaving, be careful with wet tires!
