Protection For Your Wheels

- A professional ceramic coating protects your wheels from natural elements like UV rays, salt corrosion, oxidation, dirt, and debris

- The best time to ceramic coat your wheels is they are brand new so they haven't been exposed to any of those elements 

- Ceramic coating is a liquid polymer that bonds to the wheel and allows water to bead and run off of the wheel

- Makes cleaning your wheels very easy (even mud and dirt!)

Process of Ceramic Coating

- Starts with a deep clean of your wheels so they are 100% spotless

- The liquid polymer is applied using a special sponge

- Once applied, there a cure time before wheels can be driven on

- This process is essentially the same when it comes to ceramic coating the paint of a car or truck

No. Ceramic Coating Is Safe For Your Wheel Finish
