Why Cleaning Your Tires Will Keep You Rolling Longer

Wheels Hand Cleaned at Towne Lake's Carwash and Detail

When our neighbors around Woodstock, Georgia come in to Towne Lake’s Carwash & Detail, one of the many things they expect from us is to have clean wheels along with the rest of their car.  Who wouldn’t want their wheels clean?  After all of the break dust accumulation and everything else that the road has to throw at your wheels, they can look pretty dirty.  Our carwash tunnel does a great job at safely cleaning your wheels, but we also offer a “Wheel Luster” package that goes a step further to clean your wheels and tires by hand.

Clean tires and wheels are important to the visual aspect of a clean car, but we take extra care to clean your tires for a good reason.

When cleaning your tires at home, many people make the mistake of using the wrong car care product to wash and then shine.  Many of these products were intended for other uses.  Using the wrong product can actually damage your tires and eat away at the rubber causing cracking and premature aging.

Brake dust is also capable of eating away at your tires due to its chemical makeup.  The marriage of heat and chemicals from your break pads create an extremely corrosive mixture.

We believe that keeping your wheels and tires clean isn’t just a cosmetic issue, but it is also an important regular maintenance requirement.
