Default How to: easy wheel cleaning

Have you neglected your wheels??? Shame on you, here's your solution. A damp rag will take away any streaking residue.

Warning I used my CRV (Winter beater) as an example because there's no way in hell I'd let my mustang wheels get this dirty. Hopefully none of you let your mustangs get this bad. ...but I have seen some of your nasty frenchfry covered interiors, lol

Satisfying to the last drop.

Actually they are painted but the brake dust and grime is covering them, lol.


You know lazy is??? Lazy is getting my camera ready, digging out the bathroom cleaner and rag and "Only" cleaning that one area, lol. I seriously just wiped twice and went in the house.


I don't like to use dishsoap because it's a grease cutter. When I wash my car I always use wax on my wheels and dishsoap eats through wax so I think it's counter productive. (I never use dishsoap on the paint unless I'm 3 staging fresh wax.)

LMFAO!!! thats funny!

yea, it will eat through the wax. But i dont wax my wheels so i dont have to worry
I dont see how you like to wax your wheels... I always have had sh1tty experiences with doing that. I will wax them, take the car out one night(1-2hrs) and when i get home the wax has caused brake dust to stick all over the wheels...maybe i'm just using the wrong wax for wheels or something

I use it on all my painted wheels and my chromes. A quick spray and a wipe and I'm done. All those deep dish wheels on egay like AFS wheels are all coated with a really crappy clear coat paint that the brake dust eats through in a short time. The last set of DD wheels I had, the clear coat started peeling about a month after buying them.

(I've owned 4 sets, lol)

Honestly the best thing Ive used so far is armor all auto wipes. Gets the grime off and shines too.
