Wheel Cleaner
 
is there a wheel cleaning product available that you don't need to use water with(like where it says hose off with water). i'm looking for something i can spray on my chrome clad wheels and use a rag to clean off. it's going to be 15 degrees tonight here in northern ohio. i don't want a bunch of streaks on the wheels though either. any input is appreciated.

the meg's quick detailer for rims is great! i've used it in the past. as long as your brake dust buildup isn't horrific you will be fine with that

what I like to do is ... KHHHHWWWWT

then spit on the rim and shine it with my hand or a towel if one is around ...

hence I get spit shine :)

no really though I use any cleaning product that won't eat through the chrome

I don't have a wheel specific cleaner that doesn't need a hose but the Optimum (OPT) No Rinse (ONR) maybe a great answer for you. It's traditionally used to wash your vehicle with just a bucket of water and NO RINSING, hence the name Optimum No Rinse. It should remove the contaminants no problem but not the really stubborn stains. I use the ONR to wash my vehicle in the cold winter months as well so you can use it in multiple places. Let me know if you have any questions.
