    With my husband help we installed running boards, trd skid plate, remote start, blk out emblems and tinted it!
    Have only add a few thing to her so far but I am boring!
    I actually and looking for what u all do for wheel cleaning! I currently and rocking;) the trd blk rims and they don't seem to want to come clean! I have tried Diablo by Chemical guys?(hope that's the name) but doesn't seem to get them clean!
    Thank yall so much!

    Diablo sucks.

    I just used dawn dish soap in a spray bottle for them. Dawn power wash works very well, too, but leave it off the tires.

    @SlvrSlug nailed it. I use that and a sealer. Wheels always look new. Just did mine today.

    Do you wet the wheels with water first or spray the sonax on dry wheels? No spotting on the wheels when you’re done?

    I use Sonax as well. Spray it on cool dry wheels and let it set for a few. Then uses brushes. No issues with spotting.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! I've used different wheel cleaners in the past, but, Dawn dish soap in the wash water and a soft wash mitt seem to work just fine.

    I use this, but mine are the bronze TRD wheels. I think they have a different finish from the black wheels. But I will say, the meguiars works good on them.

    Thanks friends.
    I'm gonna try the dish soap cause it's easy and already in the kitchen. If that doesn't get the last bits of brake dust, I'll give the Meguiars a try.
