Like others mention...Ceramics create much less dust...

Cleaning regluarly with ceramics keeps my rims looking new and shiney.

i detailed my car today and got the wheels looking like new!!!! , but they will probably be black again tomarro!

i wish i could post a pic but i dont have a digital camera, i've been thinking about buying one and i saw one at walmart for $20 bucks but it was probably a piece of crap, i probably shouldn't cheap out on something like that, what does a decent camera cost?

UPDATE!!!!!!! i was cleaning my wheels today and i had an idea! i sprayed simple green degreaser on my wheels and they are cleaner than ever. you guys have to try this, you dont even have to scrub them, just spray on and hose off! this is a good idea for you guys with those cross laced spoked wheels. i also used this stuff to clean my whole engine compartment and it looks brand new!

I'm pretty sure every one here has used simple green to clean wheels and engines, but thanks for the tip!
