Wheel Cleaning/Cleaners

Any suggestions on wheel cleaning or a good cleaner? Other than yanking them off and cleaning them........

I use plain ol' orange extract. You can buy it pretty much anywhere and it's safe for cleaning anything. I've yet to find anything that makes cleaning my wheels in particular any easier.

wheels or rims? for wheels I use the Armoral with the perfect spray head, but as for rims, I use my regular car wash soap with a special rim brush that doesn't leave makes

Thanks for the info, if there is one thing I dread most is getting those rims clean. I will try the orange extract and see how it does.

Just be happy you don't have to clean a set of these on the regular - what a nightmare!

I just use regular carwash soap and a sponge. I take mine off to clean and rotate them with every oil change. If you put a coat of wax on them it looks really nice and makes the dirt/brake dust wash off easier next time.

Clay and wax... I like it... then again... I only clean my wheels once every 3-6 months...
