Discussion:

Chrome wheels should be cleaned regularly with good quality car wash such as MOPAR Car
Wash Concentrate p/n 04796236AB, and water to maintain their luster and prevent corrosion.
Wash them with the same soap solution as the body of the vehicle.

Care must be taken in the selection of tire and wheel cleaning chemicals and equipment to
prevent damage to wheels. MOPAR Tire and Wheel Cleaner, p/n 05066247AB – 22 oz. or
05066248AB – 5 gal. or MOPAR Wheel Cleaner, p/n 04796239AB, is recommended to
remove normal brake dust, dirt, grease and grime.

NOTE: To clean extremely dirty wheels, MOPAR Chrome Cleaner, p/n 04318013, is
recommended.

Any of the “DO NOT USE” items listed below can damage or stain wheels and wheel trim.

DO NOT USE:

CAUTION: Many commercial wheel cleaners contain acids that may harm the wheel
surface. Avoid all “wheel acid” type cleaners.

CAUTION: Any facility found using acid based wheel cleaners will void all wheel
warranties, and all damage to customer wheels will be the facility’s
responsibility.

Refer to Global Warranty Bulletin D-01-22 for further information.

Policy:    Information Only
