How to Prevent Tire Erosion by Washing the Tires

We all know that checking our tires regularly is an important aspect of vehicle maintenance, but do you know that cleaning your tires often is also important? This is because brake dust can accumulate on the tires and cause corrosive effects on the tire material and on the wheels.

When you set out to wash your tires, be sure to first select the proper cleaner for your vehicle, which said information will be marked on the cleaner container. Use separate brushes for the wheels and the tires and consider waxing the tires or applying a tire coating when finished to prevent future corrosion from the brake dust.

If you see any problems with your wheels, tires or brakes when washing your tires, bring your vehicle in to our service center here at Land Rover Nashville in Brentwood, TN, and we will carefully check your vehicle for any problems. We can also provide any other automotive service you may need.
