For really hard to clean brake dust use the Eagle 1 A2Z then Claybar the wheel. If you use the Claybar, do all four wheels then toss the Claybar. It is no longer any good to use on the paint finish of a car.

Has anyone tried the DuPont Teflon wheel cleaner? I didn't know they made it until today.

The best way to clean and at that cheap is, Get yourself an old toothbrush and a bottle of all purpose cleaner at any auto parts store. Wash the car, then the wheels with the car wash soap. Then spray on the All purpose cleaner and scrub with the toothbrush. I know it sounds crazy but, Im anal about my car being clean.

Thanks,
Sellncars

Hey, i just picked up some Meguiars Gold Class wheel cleaner. Supposed to be safe for all wheels, guaranteed.

But i've been happy with all the other gold class stuff, it'* always been the best i've used. I'll let ya know this week how it works
