I some how magically got ceramics last time I was in the break shop, so on the GA I don't have issues. But back when I had the bonne with the chromies on, I was told not to use anything stronger then car soap-but I don't know if chrome rims are really that delicate.

Its strange, I don't seem to have brake dust issues on my car. My wheels are somewhat like a brake dust shield, since they don't have a whole lot of flow, and my rotors are fine. I wouldn't worry too much about it, I am sure it gets plenty of ventilation.

.

However, to clean them, I just use the regular car wash [Meg'* Crystal Car Wash], but I use it after I have washed the car, so my gross tire brush dirt doesn't rub off on my baby
