Exposure to weather conditions causes metal hubcaps to lose their shine and eventually rust. Regularly cleaning hubcaps preserves their appearance and extends their lifespan.
1. Rinse the hubcap with water to loosen brake dust, dirt and grime. Don't forget to spray behind as well to wash away hidden debris!
2. Mix liquid car wash soap with water and wipe the hubcap using a lambswool mitt
3. Using a soft-bristled brush, scrub the cervices to dislodge dirt and grime
4. Rinse with water and dry with a clean towel!
Your hubcaps will look good as new!
1) Begin by vacuuming all surfaces of the seats to remove any loose dirt and debris. The attachments are helpful for reaching tight crevices and in between the seats and the console.
2) Next, look over the seats to identify any stained areas that will require extra cleaning as well as weak areas that may show signs of damage (holes, thin fabric, etc.). Weak areas should be cleaned with caution to avoid damaging the area further.
3) Apply an upholstery cleaner to the surface of the seat. It works best to work in small sections.
4) Work the cleaner into the fabric with a stiff brush. Extra scrubbing will be required to removed stains and heavily soiled areas.
5) For stains and soiled areas that do not come clean with the upholstery cleaner, apply a spot remover. Again, work it into the fabric with a stiff brush.
6) Wipe any excess cleaner away with a clean, white, soft cloth.
7) Check the product label. Many products do not need to be rinsed, and the area can be left to dry.
8) If rinsing is required, spray water over the area (small amounts at a time so it doesn’t saturate the foam cushion) and remove with a wet vac immediately.
Allow the seats to dry completely. Keep windows down until the seats are dry to avoid mold and mildew growth.

•Uneven wear- If one of your front or back tires shows a much different wear pattern than its opposite.
•Pulling to the right or left- If a vehicle's wheels are badly out of alignment, you'll notice the vehicle will automatically try to turn to one side or another.
•Passive pulling- With a lesser alignment problem, the vehicle may not actively pull, but when you let the car go straight ahead, without a hand on the steering wheel, the vehicle may naturally drift off to one direction or another.
•Vibration- Bad alignment can also cause vibration as wheels pull against each other.
•A crooked steering wheel- Another sign of a vehicle that is out of alignment is that the steering wheel may be crooked while the car or truck is going straight ahead.
