Aluminum wheels and wheel covers

Aluminum wheels and wheel covers  - Cleaning - Lincoln MKS Owners Manual - Lincoln MKS

Aluminum wheels and wheel covers are coated with a clear coat paint finish. In order to maintain their shine:

Х Clean weekly with Motorcraft Wheel and Tire Cleaner, which is available from your authorized dealer. Heavy dirt and brake dust accumulation may require agitation with a sponge. Rinse thoroughly with a strong stream of water.
Х Never apply any cleaning chemical to hot or warm wheel rims or covers.
Х Some automatic car washes may cause damage to the finish on your wheel rims or covers. Industrial-strength (heavy-duty) cleaners, or cleaning chemicals, in combination with brush agitation to remove brake dust and dirt, could wear away the clear coat finish over time.
Х Do not use hydrofluoric acid-based or high caustic-based wheel cleaners, steel wool, fuels or strong household detergent.
Х To remove tar and grease, use Motorcraft Bug and Tar Remover , available from your authorized dealer.
