Cleaning three-piece modular wheels requires some care and attention to detail to ensure they remain in good condition. Here are the steps to properly wash your three-piece modular wheels:

Tools and materials you will need:

  1. Wheel cleaner: Use a specialized wheel cleaner that is safe for your wheel's finish. Make sure it's compatible with the type of metal or finish on your wheels. Bucket: For mixing the cleaning solution. Gloves: To protect your hands from chemicals and dirt. Soft-bristle brush: A soft-bristle brush or wheel brush is ideal for scrubbing the wheels. Microfiber towels: To dry the wheels and wipe away any residue. Hose with a nozzle: For rinsing off the wheels.

  1. Prepare the area: Park your vehicle in a shaded area to avoid direct sunlight and make sure the wheels are cool to the touch. Hot wheels can cause the cleaning solution to dry too quickly and leave streaks.
  2. Mix the cleaner: Follow the instructions on the wheel cleaner bottle to dilute it in a bucket of water. Wear gloves during this process.
  3. Rinse the wheels: Use a hose with a nozzle to rinse off loose dirt and grime from the wheels. This will help prevent scratching during the cleaning process.
  4. Apply the cleaner: Dip the soft-bristle brush into the diluted wheel cleaner and gently scrub the wheels. Pay close attention to the inner and outer rims and any crevices where brake dust and dirt tend to accumulate.
  5. Rinse thoroughly: Use the hose to thoroughly rinse the wheels, removing all the cleaning solution and loosened dirt.
  6. Dry the wheels: Use clean, dry microfiber towels to dry the wheels completely.

Remember that the frequency of cleaning your wheels will depend on your driving conditions and how quickly they accumulate brake dust and road grime. Regular maintenance will help keep your three-piece modular wheels looking their best and prolong their life.


Maintaining your three-piece modular wheels on a daily basis is essential to keep them looking their best and to prevent the buildup of dirt, brake dust, and other contaminants. Here are some daily maintenance tips for your wheels:

  1. Brake Dust Removal: Brake dust can accumulate on your wheels quickly, and if left unattended, it can become difficult to remove. Consider these options:
  • Use a wheel brush or a microfiber cloth to gently wipe away brake dust daily or as needed.
  • Apply a wheel wax or sealant to create a barrier that makes it easier to clean off brake dust in the future.
  1. Keep Them Clean: If your wheels get dirty during your daily drives, it's a good idea to clean them regularly. Use a microfiber cloth to gently wipe away dirt and grime, particularly in areas that tend to accumulate contaminants.
  2. Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners for daily cleaning, as they can damage the wheel's finish. Stick to a mild soap or water for daily maintenance.
  3. Protection from the Elements: If your area experiences harsh weather conditions, like snow or road salt, take extra precautions. Consider applying a wheel wax or sealant to protect the wheels from corrosion and salt damage.
  4. Keep a Clean Vehicle: A clean car will help prevent dirt and debris from accumulating on your wheels. Regularly wash your vehicle to minimize the transfer of contaminants onto your wheels.

By incorporating these daily maintenance practices into your routine, you can keep your three-piece modular wheels in excellent condition, extend their lifespan, and maintain their appearance. Additionally, conducting periodic deep cleanings and polishing, as mentioned in previous responses, will help you keep your wheels looking their best over time.


Polishing your three-piece modular wheels can help bring out their shine and remove oxidation or surface imperfections. Here's how to properly metal polish your three-piece wheels:

Tools and materials you will need:

  1. Metal wheel polish: Choose a high-quality metal polish that's suitable for aluminum.
  2. Microfiber cloths: These are gentle on the metal surface and won't scratch it.

Steps to polish your three-piece modular wheels:

  1. Safety first: Wear gloves and eye protection to protect yourself during the polishing process.
  2. Clean the wheels: Start by cleaning the wheels to remove any loose dirt and grime. Use a soft-bristle brush and a bucket of soapy water. Rinse them thoroughly with a hose to remove any soap residue.
  3. Test a small area: Before applying the metal polish to the entire wheel, test it on a small, inconspicuous area to ensure it doesn't cause any adverse reactions or damage the finish.
  4. Apply the metal polish: Dab a small amount of metal polish onto a clean, dry cloth or applicator pad. Work on one section of the wheel at a time. Rub the polish onto the metal surface in a circular or back-and-forth motion. Apply moderate pressure to work out imperfections and oxidation.

5. Wipe the wheels: Use a clean, dry microfibre to wipe the wheels thoroughly.

The frequency of polishing your three-piece modular wheels will depend on your driving conditions and how quickly they tarnish or develop imperfections. Regular maintenance will help keep your wheels looking their best.
