At Alloy Art all wheels go through a number of different processes, including chemical dipping, welding, shot blasting, machining etc. The process in which the paint is applied is the same process used when the wheel was manufactured. Giving a quality robust finish to your wheels, this cannot be matched by a mobile company or by having the front face of the wheel sprayed.

ALLOY ARTS NON-ACIDIC WHEEL WASH
Here at alloy art we understand the importance of preserving that long lasting shine on your wheels, our factory finish super durable acrylic lacquer is by far one of the strongest possible top coat powder coat lacquers available today but even at its best our finish is affected over time by the use of aggressive cleaners, most wheel cleaners on the market contain forms of corrosive acid from small amounts to heavily acidic traffic film remover cleaners used by most car washes, any of these can have a drastic effect on wheel finishes over time this is why we have developed a totally non-acid wheel cleaner that is alkaline, this gives you the best performance on dirt grime and break dust build up with none of the damaging acidic elements.
Alloy arts non-acid wheel cleaner is simply applied to the wheel and agitated if necessary and left to settle for a maximum of 5 minutes and then jet washed for best results or rinsed off with clean water, as its alkaline this process can be repeated as many times as you like, our 1litre bottle offers a massive 64 average wheel washes per bottle.
We pride ourselves in the wheel finish we offer so why not offer a cleaner that keeps that finish top notch for as long as possible.
All types of cards are accepted except American Express.
