Where are you getting your car washed?

So I just got a set of aftermarket wheels and I don't think I can go through my favorite car wash anymore.

Does everyone just wash their own cars? Any safe non-tracks car wash around?

I mainly wash both of mine, but when I can't, I use a truly touchless car wash that does NOT have any wheel aligner. They're not always easy to find, but if you look around your area you can usually find one. The dryer mechanisms are not always the best so I bring a shammy and microfiber towels to help out. Not the best wash, but safe and keeps the grime off your ride.

I've been doing a combination of washing the car myself, and taking it to a "track-less" gas station carwash near my work. There's also a self service type wash near my house which I'm going to try. Washing my car is not my favorite thing to do, so I'm trying to find the easiest way to get it done.

I'm using the sealant hydr02 lite, so I don't have to wash it that often. Seems to be working pretty good.

Car wash

I personally go to Soaps n Suds in Manassas, VA. Right across from the Manassas Mall. They do a really good job for the times I need an undercarriage wash.

If I do not need an undercarriage wash, I just hand wash my car at home on my driveway using the two bucket method.
