which wheels do you have? the crosslace ones?

basically get an cleaner like this (link to product i've used)
http://www.eagleone.com/_products/0,1020626.asp
and some sort of brush.....

the best thing you can do is not let the brake dust build up.......


o and make sure you read the directions and warnings

multiple applications could be needed.......i use pretty good pressure when washing my car.......if your using a regular garden hose.....some major scrubbing could be in order.

Eagle one makes the best cleaners and polishes. They also have a new spray on wax that works great!! Also Bras are for girls, unless you are hiding flaws forget it.
