How to clean the entire rim?
 
How do you guys clean the entire rim from the inside? Not just the front(face) but the lip inside! I haven't cleaned mine since i got the jeep! They are beyond dirty from the inside!!! Can I do this without taking off the rims?

Thanks

Yeah, I remove the wheel to clean the inside. Use a really strong wheel cleaner or degreaser and I also used 0000 steel wool. As you would expect, get a nice coat of wax on them to protect.

The best way is to take it off unless you have like 24". Sometimes you can get a toilet brush in theere but it doesn't clean it as good as taking it off.

I agree, if you're going to do it, do it right and take the wheel off.
