    What do y’all use to clean them? I know soapy water and a sponge works. I didn’t know if y’all used a specific spray on cleaner for them?

    I use the left over wash water in a "wheel" bucket only used for the tires and rims. A wash mitt and some finger action. Last year i ceramic coated them, makes them much easier to clean.

    Anyone have a specific clearer that works well? I've tried the Dr. Beasley's and scrubbing them and it just seems like the brake dust won't lift from these wheels.

    Maybe try to spray with tire/wheel cleaning spray first. I use Turtle brand on my stock wheels/tires then rinse and use left over soap and water I use on the body. It works well for me.

    I've tried, then hit them with the foam Cannon and scrubbed. It's just flat wheels I guess and I'm gonna have to learn to be happy with how they are.

    I detail lots of vehicles and the wheel cleaner that I swear by is Poor Boy's Spray and Rinse. Use as directed and brake dust doesn't have a chance. Awesome stuff!
