Wheels require regular care to maintain their factory appearance. Clean them regularly. Please note that warranty claims on ﬁnish will be voided if improper maintenance or improper cleaning agents are
Typical road dirt traps moisture that, over a period of time, can cause corrosion. Brake dust, created by braking friction, is corrosive and can cause pitting of the wheel’s ﬁnish. Most household cleaning agents
are too harsh and must be avoided. Mild dish soap and water is all you need to properly clean your wheels`.
Care for the ﬁnish of your wheels the way you would care for the ﬁnish of your car. Do not use abrasive materials to clean wheels as they can damage the ﬁnish. Use caution when cleaning tires with a bristle brush and never use scouring pads. Use caution in automatic
car washes because steam cleaners and strong chemicals that are sometimes used can cause permanent staining or corrosion.
Never clean wheels when they are hot. Always allow wheels time to cool before cleaning with soap and water. Never spray cold water on extremely hot wheels.

Chrome-plated steel: Clean a chrome ﬁnish using mild dish soap and water; dry with a soft cloth.

Performance Plus Tire & Automotive has sold American Racing Wheels for over 35 years. We can remember when the most popular styles were the Libre for Ford Pinto, Chevrolet Vega, Datsun 510 and Toyota Corona and the Lemans for Volkswagon Beetles and Porsche 914. American Racing Wheels were originally manufactured in Northern California. The manufacturing facility was ultimately moved to Southern California.
American Racing has come back to its roots to some degree, focusing on Hot Rod and Vintage styles. They have reintroduced many of the original designs they offered in the 1960’s and 1970’s. These include the Torq Thrust D, T70R, Torq Thrust Original, and 200S. They also offer many contemporary designs for today’s vehicles. American Racing is truly an icon of the custom wheel industry.
