had a good clean?

This is probably one of the reasons that we clean a customer’s car after it has been serviced. I happen to live about fifteen miles away from my garage in Halifax Yorkshire UK. I very often have to take my friends and neighbours cars in to have them serviced. When I take their cars home, it is surprising how much better the car drives.

I am convinced that part of the reason is because we wash and clean the customer’s car, when we have finished the service. The cars really do seem to drive much better. Our customers have also commented on the difference that a service can have on their car.

This brings me onto Wheel Refurbishment.

Especially alloy wheel refurbishment. Alloy wheels are notorious for degrading. Not only on the outside, but, on the inside too. Most of the time when we remove a tyre from an alloy wheel the inside where the tyre sits will be highly corroded.

We then have to clean of this corrosion,( which is like a white powder and is due to oxidisation, and can break the seal between the

tyre and wheel causing the tyre to loose pressure) we then apply a special cream, before re fitting the tyre. This has the effect of sealing the tyre onto the rim and enables the tyre to retain its pressure.

If the wheel is really bad, then we suggest to the customer, that they should consider having a wheel refurbishment. Some customers are really proud of their cars and have a wheel refurbishment as a matter of fact, just to keep their cars in pristine condition.

These are the types of customers who also buy our Poorboys car cleaning products and spend hours detailing their cars.

Wheel Refurbishment

Wheel refurbishment, will bring your cars wheel virtually back to new. The process includes totally stripping down all the old materials down to the original metal; this is the total wheel both the inside and the outside and starting the renewing process all over again. The wheels are resprayed with colour of the customer’s choice and then they are baked in an oven at high temperature.

The final process is to apply a coating of lacquer, to give the alloy wheels a further coating for protection.

Alloy wheel refurbishment is now getting more popular, mainly because that the price has come down, mainly because there are more companies that are opening up and the wheel refurbishment prices are coming down.
