In This Issue We’ve Covered All You Need To Know About Keeping Your Valuable Wheels In Top Condition. We’ve Looked At The Importance Of Regular Cleaning As Well As The Dangers Of Using The Wrong Products On Delicate Surfaces.

Since we’d gone into so much detail, the guys at Meguiar’s wanted offer greater encouragement for you to read it since wheel-related issues are the most common questions on their telephone hotline and online forums.

As an incentive for you, Meguiar’s have given us three great prizes for this simple competition. All you have to do is read the story, visit and you’ll be able to answer our questions correctly.

The Grand Prize is laid before you. It features all the latest products to get your wheels and tires gleaming, not matter what you have.

Not only does it include a wheel cleaner but there’s also the Wheel Polishing Kit, cleaning compound, polish, wax and microfiber towels to apply it. Then there’s Brake Dust Barrier to keep the wheels clean for longer, and Tire Gel to dress up the rubber.

As you’d expect, Second and Third prizes offer slightly fewer products to the Grand Prize, but it’s still a spectacular package for somebody who’s proud of their wheels.

Special note: Meguiar’s wheel cleaner will be provided with each prize, but whether its Hot Wheels Chrome, All Wheel & Tire or Aluminum Cleaner is up to you. Tell us which is best for your wheels and Meguiar’s will provide it. After all, we don’t want you to damage your finish with the wrong product. Meguiar’s All Wheel & Tire appears in the photos but only as a reference.
