How to Clean Wheels and Wells

ALITL8 25.10.2007, 01:05
Equipment:
Bucket
Misc brushes, sponges and mitts

Chemicals:
Car wash soap or, my favorite, Simple Green. (just a splash with 3-5 gals of water)

Watch and learn. Follow these steps every time you clean your car and your wheels and wheel wells will stay looking new for as long as you own your car. If youve already let them go and get bad then you'll need to remove your wheels and get dirty to get them back in an acceptable condition.

robert whats the best way to get years of brake dust of my stock wheels. the only thing that i have found that works is brake cleaner. would a highly concentrated mixture of simple green and water work?

sometimes some elbow grease, a sponge or scotch brite, brushes, some SG and water and maybe some serious polishing and/or paint/powder coating... other times there's no saving them. it really just depends on how long its been on there, what all has built up and what amount of time and money youre willing to invest.

Nice. I used to detail my old bosses X5 a lot, and I wish my wheels were that easy to clean :)

I have to take mine off about once a month to clean the insides of the wheels and the wheel wells.

yep, if you cant get to the back of the wheels, you have to pull them off if you want them clean (i charge extra for wheel removal LOL).
