Anyone paranoid about taking your car to a car wash with 18/19/20"wheels and having them scrapped? To busy to hand wash all the time. Does the tire bead protect the wheel and am i just paranoid?

If you mean the auto washers, then hell yes you need to stop. Screw those bis ass donuts, protect you body. pay someone the $20 to do it by hand.

Pay someone the money to do it by hand. If you have aftermarket wheels you are asking for it.

Do it yourself! I don't machines, nor would I pay $20 for someone else to do it when I can use $20 for other things. Like 20 Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers from Wendy's.

I always have my car hand washed... Running it through the car wash facility screw up many things on your car.

:paranoid: Don't even risk it. Pay someone to hand wash your car or bring it to a self serve wash.

If you live in SoCal, there is a car wash place in Walnut with no rails. The workers simply drive your car through the car wash. My lazy friend with a lowered C55 on HREs does it all the time.

Yeah I always have it hand-washed. There is a hand wash over here on PCH that is really good that I go to all the time. I almost went to this machine wash place over in Hermosa this weekend because I was strapped for time. After looking at those little tracks and then at the 19"s I wisely decided against it. The lil mexican dude at the front who gives you the ticket tried to convinence me that my wheels would fit but I was like f*** that cabrone :flipa: :D

Really, you're drivin' around in $60K+ cars and you're going to let some stupid machine wash it for you? Pay the money and have a nice day.
