Can I use jet washers, acidic cleaning solutions or alloy wheel cleaners?

Precision Wheels do not recommend the use of jet washes, using acidic cleaning solutions or any proprietary alloy wheel cleaners as these are specifically designed for polished and un-lacquered wheels and contain acid based cleaners that will attack, and in time break down lacquer coatings. A mild detergent such as Palmolive liquid and hot water used once a week will suffice.
