    cartec wheel cleaner, AS tardis and an iron remover should fix it.

    Should be fine to leave it to dry then hose it off. The longer you leave it (up to a point) the more effective it'll be.

    If it's a bit sticky to come off, just spray a very slight mist of extra product on, agitate with a brush an then rinse immediately.

    Obviously this is the better choice, but unfortunatley my girlfriend has my pockets for the time being! :(:(:(:(: i have managed to get the wheels clean and sparkly with 2hours of hard graft, brasso (awesome tar-remover) and alloy cleaner which has acid in it. How do i get the pics on here?
