Rim cleaning?

3 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Maybe I'm being a little picky over this but... What do you guys use to clean the rims?  I just have the basic generic ones and I noticed it looks like my car has a lot of tan-brown dirt on the wheels. Freshly after a carwash everything looks great and the wheels look like they never got washed. I attempted to lightly use a power-washer ( not sure what they have on these wheels ) and it did nothing.  Someone told me WD-40. Which worked, with a lot of scrubbing.  So before I go crazy and work on the wheels for hours. Do they make a chemical you just spray on and let it sit/do the work, then power-wash it off?  I'm normally not super fussy about the looks of a car, but I rather not have a freshly washed car with very dirty looking rims.

 

 

Is it break dust?  I've seen people use chemicals that turn red when reacting to break-dust and power washes off, but I didnt want to just try stuff and risk more damage..

You could try the cleaner CLR. But try a very small area first, like a small dab. It's an iron/rust remover. Just make sure it does not damage anything.

Remove them, wash with dish soap, wax them with a paste wax and put them back on. Dish soap rremoves almost everything, and the wax will keep the dirt from sticking to the wheels.
