Chrome wheels after winter !!

I didn't want to run my chrome wheels for the winter but didn't have much choice

The two back one's aren't bad, the front two are bad, dirt, salt, brake dust, they are purity much black.



First I tried simple green to clean them, hahahahaha what a joke !!!!

Then I went to dawn dish soap (tough on grease and grime) better but still nothing !!

Time to bring out the big guns mister clean and a soft scrub pad, holy shit it worked

I use Spray 9. That stuff will take the barnacles off a whales dick. It's the best tire cleaner also. Spray on wait about a minute, hose off.

Looks good Kieth!

I used to use spray 9.
But I've been using Meguairs hot chrome rim cleaner.
http://www.meguiars.com/m-en/product...-wheel-cleaner

It has a bit of acid in it which you can use in chrome. It works awesome!
Rinse the rim off and then spray, let sit for a min. Don't let dry, then go to town with a scrubby.
Rinse away. Good to go.

to keep the rims protected from the winter, and in general just the brake dust id recommend three products..

Opti Coat #1
Collonite 845 or 476 as #2
Wheelwax.

it will make the cleanups a bit easier.

also for a good general wheel wash, P21s GEl wheel cleaner is great, and if they are real bad, sonax is awesome.

this place has a great deal on a six pack of sonax wheel cleaner.

Never heard of any of those brands. Can you get them retail (Canadian Tire), or is it a mail order only thing ?
