Default How to Clean your Crosslace in 10 minuets....

http://storage.msn.com/x1pbg2vVjApeG...bQZxnxurbvqDrg

this is my secret

i can have all 4 wheels done on my car in 10 minuets or less....try it and you will see

wet the wheel
spray the rim with the cleaner
spray the cleaner on the brush
the bristles of the brush will get in all the little spokes of the corsslace

and done

yeah thats how I always clean any wheels, but i use different cleaners on chrome/wire wheels and stainless

actually i use a brush like that on the grille and bumpers too, and sometimes on the whole car depending on how dirty it is. always use a lot of soap too.

I use that too, but not too often on the 93. The ceramic pads help a TON. 95 is a different story.
