Tire care made easy

Of course, before the beauty cure for the tires can begin, they need to be cleaned. The car wash, however, is paradoxically the reason why the tires often look pale and stained. The better option would be to grab a bucket of soapy water and clean the tires by hand. For more stubborn soiling, you can also use a washing glove and brush, for the subtleties brush and micro-fibre cloth help. After the first cleaning, dry the tires thoroughly.

The result may already be enough for some, but if you want to give your tire extra shine, there is a wide range of products available. We present a small selection here.
