View Full Version : Cleaning rims

Does anyone have a procedure for cleaning rims ? My stock 1998 cobra rims are stained with (I guess) brake dust. I can't seem to get them clean. Please Help !

Eagle one A-z Wheel Cleaner is all you should need. Make sure your wheels are cool to touch when you clean them.....;)

I wouldn't use any wheel cleaners, most have acid in them that will ruin your wheels, if they are brake dust stained most likely no cleaner will take the stains off. I would just have them repainted. A course use your own judgement but I had seen bad things happen to wheels with wheel cleaner.

If they're stained like you say, I'd try some Mother's wheel polish.

1) Clean with car soap or degreaser
2) Use wheel polish 1-3 times
3) Follow up with 2-3 coats of wax

And BAM.......they should be looking great.
