Ford Escape: Aluminum wheels and wheel covers
Aluminum wheels and wheel covers are coated with a clear coat paint finish. In order to maintain their shine:
вЂў Clean weekly with Motorcraft Wheel and Tire Cleaner, which is
available from your authorized dealer. Heavy dirt and brake dust
accumulation may require agitation with a sponge. Rinse thoroughly
with a strong stream of water.
вЂў Never apply any cleaning chemical to hot or warm wheel rims or covers.
вЂў Some automatic car washes may cause damage to the finish on your wheel rims or covers. Industrial-strength (heavy-duty) cleaners, or cleaning chemicals, in combination with brush agitation to remove brake dust and dirt, could wear away the clear coat finish over time.
вЂў Do not use hydrofluoric acid-based or high caustic-based wheel cleaners, steel wool, fuels or strong household detergent.
вЂў To remove tar and grease, use Motorcraft Bug and Tar Remover , available from your authorized dealer.
