I would say it depends on the car wash. I send mine through weekly with no problem. Never any problems with the rims. I would still double check the width of the conveyor system first. Only use soft cloth car wash. There are usually 3-4 teenagers working on the car with 4-5 drying towels that never move from outside in or vs/vs. Of course they know me. Only manager can move the car and they go through the wash with it. I have the dealer do complete detail and only use simple soap car wash to avoid unnecessary wax and who knows what else build up. Cleared it first through the dealer. Just be smart and careful in where you select.
