Cleaning Your Tyres

Cleaning your tyres not only improves the aesthetic of your car, it also helps to lengthen their life, improve braking and allows for better traction. This is because brake dust, which comes from the brake pads, deposits on your tyres and over time begins to accumulate and corrode. Eventually, this can damage the effectiveness of your brake pads and lead to surface pitting.
