What is the easiest way to clean aluminum honeycomb wheels? I have had mine for 3 days and am already getting aggrivated.

I'll try it, but what would be the best kind of brush to use? It has a pretty good layer of brake dust on them.

Its a pain in the arse, but the best way i have seen is Meguiars hot rims, good rag, and a strong finger, scrub away, then pressure wash the hell out of the rims.
Then buy ceramic break pads, then your laughin

I use the stuff with the teflon in it, and it cleans em pretty good, but I'm trying to get away from the "strong finger" deal.

I find that Eagle One'* wheel cleaner is amazing. Tried it today and it took out some of the muck in there that I thought was there for life. Everytime I attacked it for the 2 years ive had my bonne it wouldnt come out whatever I tried. That stuff took it right off with only a little scrubbing. It'* a spray as well so easy to use.

I was thinking about getting that the other day, but decided against it, but I'll try that first. See, I'm used to cleaning old steel chevy truck wheels, so the honeycombs are kinda new to me.
