Contrast Cut, Contrast Cut Platinum, Black Anodized, Gold Ops and Black Ops Wheels:
Clean and Care of Black Anodized Finish:
Wash with mild soap and water, no detergents or harsh chemical cleaners that can destroy the black anodized finish. You may use a non-abrasive wax on the black anodized portion of the product to protect it. Never use a harsh or abrasive wax as it will remove the black anodized finish.
Black and Gold Ops (Contrast Cut Stealth):
Wash with mild soap and water. No detergents or harsh chemical cleaners should be used as they can destroy the anodized finish. Wax and/or cleaners containing wax are not recommended as they may leave an uneven finish on the matte black surface. Detail spray or WD40 also work well for “dry cleaning” or wipe-down. Due to the semi-rough surface of the finish, we recommend using a micro-fiber or other lint-free type of cloth so as not to leave behind any remnants of the cloth.
Clean and Care of Milled Area (Standard Contrast Cut):
Wash with mild soap and water, no detergents or harsh chemical cleaners. To remove stains on the milled area you may use the following methods depending upon the condition of the wheel.
Clean and care of Polished surface ( Contrast Cut Platinum):
- A mild MAG polish will remove mild stains from the milled area, but will make the milled area shiny as it contains some abrasives. CAUTION: Take extreme care not to use this on the black ano surface of any product as it will remove the black finish.
- Scotch bright can be used to remove more severe stains on the milled area. CAUTION: Measures should be taken up to and including masking to ensure that the black ano surface of any product is not damaged.
- To retain the satin finish of the milled area a MILD scotch bright cloth may be used very carefully to clean the surface.
The polished area of the wheel will tend to dull after being exposed to road dirt, chemicals and pollutants. You can use a high quality aluminum polish to revive the luster of the aluminum. Make sure to completely protect the black ano portion of the wheel, up to and including masking, to ensure that the black ano surface is not damaged
