Thumbs Up Re: Alloy Wheel Cleaners...

I sometimes use the spray to loosen off the really burnt in stuff but yeah.. most of the time regular car shampoo and my special wheel sponge does the trick.

Re: Alloy Wheel Cleaners...

Quinny, same for me, but once or twice a year I give them the old Wonder Wheels treatment which is excellent, but if you are doing it properly takes a while (about half an hour a wheel on the Integrales lattice style alloys - Bug should know this from his Q4). WW really does get the stubborn bits off.

The 5 spoke speedlines on the 155 are much easier to clean and you can get your whole hand in(ooo err Mrs)between the spokes and do the inner part of the wheel too (no chance on the Evo)

I would also recommend one of those extra long paintbrushes like the kids use at infants school (yeah, crap description, but thats the only time I had ever used one before!) to apply the 'wonder fluid', so you don't get cronic f*cking back ache. Also brings up the brake calipers a treat.

Ooooh, I feel a wheel cleaning frenzy approaching...Now then, wheres me brush?
