Rexed.

If its the wire rims, Orange Grease Lightning is the best.

Same product will do fine. Or any Eagle One product is good for removing soot and brake dust.

At least that is what I use(d)

I use the windex foaming stuff. It seems to work wonders, got the idea from my friend that owns a GP. Use a soft towel one to rub dirt off one to wipe off. Seems to work wonders...tho i was wondering if a brush/different cleaner would work just as well. I have the stock 2k SSEI chrome rims.
