Has anyone had any issues with scratching or damage to your dark chrome wheels going through a non touch commercial wash?

Thanks. First car with low profile tires/wheels and concerned with possibility of wheels rubbing against the rails.

Yeah, makes sense. Guess I am fortunate. The drive through I used is touch-less and is jus a big bay with out rails. The car wash is an overhead facing/side facing arm that moves back and forth the length and width of the car then blows it dry too

My previous car had wheels that extended beyond the plane of the tires. That is, when I approached the curb the wheel would make contact first. The tires would not scuff before the wheels. Believe me, I know this about them. When I bought this car the first thing I did was to put a straightedge vertically from top to bottom of the 18" wheel/tire (Primacy Michelin). The wheel is inset ~1/8 inch from the tire so a bit of protection from curbing. The reverse of my previous vehicle. Hope this aids your concerns.

I am a member of Mr Carwash (Tampa chain) where you basically drive up, get out and drink a coffee and your car gets valet washed, dried inside and out. It uses a wheel conveyor for part of it. I do this about twice a week for about 6 months in the G70 and 12 months before that in S6 with custom rims. No scratches.

I wish we had a Mr. Carwash here. Going to put a straight edge on my 19's and see if have a bit of rubber protection.
