Re: How to clean the entire rim?

For the inside of the wheel, I've always used one of those blue spongy things with the white plastic handle that's used for toilets. I usually find them in dollar stores. For the face, I use a microfiber cloth.

Re: How to clean the entire rim?

I have a microfiber wheel cleaning brush/wand that I picked up at Auto Zone, works great.
Couple that with a good wheel cleaner and I wash the inside of the wheel every time I wash the Jeep.

Re: How to clean the entire rim?

Alright, i didn't look through this thread to see if people had posted any good products to use. Too lazy. But what i wanted to know what is the best wheel cleaning product out there?? I heard break cleaner works wonders! My moms WJ has baked on break dust. Im talkin' bad... Ive tried cleaners that i thought would be good or whatever, no dice. What do you recommend for really really dirty wheels/rims that could make somone say.. man this is hopeless. Thanks for the insight!

I had a wheel in a similar situation (the Jeep's spare) - when I had it put on I thought there way no way this thing was getting cleaned and it didn't with a strong wheel cleaners. It was recommended that I try 0000 steel wool... worked like a charm! The wheel looked brand new!

Re: How to clean the entire rim?

I have the 0000 steel wool also but is there a solvent that will aide in this?

I just used the wheel cleaner I had tried before, but I think any de-greaser (Simple Green, Dawn, etc), and maybe add a little water to dilute it, will be fine.

I'm going to head out and do mine soon. I'll report back with my findings/results.
