1slofofo Yes, if you pull in correctly, you'll be fine. I go to two different washes, one has guys directing you, which doesn't work as well. But the other has a huge mirror, and a wide entrance, so you can't fudge it up.

And if they do end up scratching, you can always consider one of those where you pay by time and do it yourself. lol

Maj. Woody Thanks for the reply. I dont have the steel wheel with covers so I am a bit concerned. It sounds like if you pull straight into the y shaped track without hitting the sides you will be ok. Is that what you are saying?
Thanks again!

1slofofo I have 16s too and only scratched them when I pulled in wrong. It's worth noting I have wheel covers/steel wheels.

Delta Sonic Wheel Rail Concerns

Hi Guys.
I just traded my well loved but gas guzzling F-150 for a 2013 Focus SE Hatchback. My F-150 has always gone through Delta Sonic Car wash with no concern. I am wondering though about my new Focus and the wheels getting scratched by the wheel rail of the car wash. My F-150 had big tall tires so the rail only contacted the tire. The focus has 215-55-16 tires. From what I can tell, the tire side wall protrudes a bit farther out from the wheel itself so the wheel may not even contact the car wash rail. Does anyone have any experience here to share?
Thanks for the help!
Dom
