I wipe wheels down with rag before using. But if it were me and i had a long way to go before getting inside. Ide maybe use a cart or hand truck. Anything you put on wheels will shread. I tried tape once but that was a huge mistake.

I just use wet rag. But the presprayed carpet seems to do good job cleaning wheels off for me :D on wood what would worry me more is grit or small rocks stuck in the tires that might scratch.
It is worrying me my husband does sheet metal work I’m gonna try to cap them to keep them some what clean till I get to the job clean wheels after removing

Over kill. Just get some shrink wrap film mini 6" Heavy weight stuff. Wrap tires up good. Then just use knife to remove. No residue to worry about. Can do this over and over if you want. Or use tape. But put something over tire to keep tape from sticking to tire. Sandwich wrap or whatever. Then put a layer of duct tape over that.
