Wheel & Tire Cleaning Procedure, Drying Aid Towels and Extended Warranties: The Week in Review for 8/12/19

Wheel & Tire Cleaning Procedure, Drying Aid Towels and Extended Warranties: The Week in Review for 8/12/19

August 16, 2019 – Wheel & Tire Cleaning Procedure

Obsessed Garage Wheel & Tire Cleaning Procedure (28 minutes, 31 seconds)

In this video I go over the wheel and tire cleaning procedure I use on my cars. I always clean my wheels and tires before I wash the rest of the car, it makes the most sense to me.

I take time to explain the process as I clean the wheels on the OG M3. I also talk about using cleaning products on carbon ceramics and how that may differ from traditional brakes.

The Sennheiser wireless mic had a problem while recording this video & I didn't know. The audio was fixed as much as it could be in post-production.

Other highlights from the week of August 12, 2019: 

August 12, 2019 – BMW M3 Radiator Fan Replacement (Why I Don’t Buy An Extended Warranty)

BMW M3 Radiator Fan Replacement  (35 minutes, 40 seconds)

After discovering that my radiator fan was broken on the M3, I ordered a new one from getBMWparts. I also replace the cowl filter covers while doing the fan.

While doing the replacement I also talk about why I don't buy into getting extended warranties for my cars.

August 13, 2019 – Wheel & Tire Package v2.0

Obsessed Garage Wheel And Tire Package v2.0 (25 minutes, 7 seconds)

Version 2 of the Wheel and Tire Package is finally here! I've replaced two products with one in this version of the package. Adam's Tire & Rubber / Adam's Wheel Cleaner have been replaced by P&S Brake Buster.

After testing back and forth with Adam's Wheel Cleaner and Adam's Tire & Rubber Cleaner, I found Brake Buster to be equivalent. Adam's Foam Blocks have been removed from the package and will be used for interior cleaning now (Alcantara Cleaner Applicator). I'm giving the option to add wheel & tire towels if wanted. I personally keep 20 of these towels in my cabinet. These are a 420 GSM, 70% Polyester / 30% Polyamide, 16"x16" towel. The beauty of this one is that it has a softer, plusher side for the wheel face and barrel, then a shorter nap on the other side to wipe the tires.

August 14, 2019 – Orange Drying Aid Towel

Microfiber E15: Drying Aid Towel (11 minutes, 24 seconds)

I've never been a fan of twist loop type towels.  I find them to be too heavy and not particularly soft.   This is the first new towel in what will become Version 3.0 of the towels I have in my cabinet.  This one does well with any type of drying in the final step of the washing process.
