my 1st attempt at alloy wheel cleaning
so I had all 4 wheels off yesterday it looks like the previous owner had never cleaned inside the wheels and they were covered in thick black grease and brake dust.
I just used soapy water, a sponge and a green scowery sponge thingy. that managed to clean off alot of the grime but they were still black and filthy.
I was in Halfords this morning and found myself in the wheel cleaning section and ended up getting myself:
Auto glym - Hi Tech Wheel Brush
Turtle Wax - Extreme Nano Tech wheel cleaner
Here is what the wheel looked like before I started
so after about 4 sprays and hard brushing with rinsing in between each one the worked area looked like this
the remainder of the crap doesn't seem to wanna shift. does anyone have any ideas?
i was also thinking of just getting them refurbed back to original as there is some corrosion and bubbling on the inside of the wheels. not sure how to go about doing that though :ermm:
