cleaning black rims

any suggestions on keeping my black moto metals clean? they seem to be collecting some sort of grime (im thinking break dust) that is very difficult to get off. its not visible to anyone but me but you can definatly feel its rougher than the rest of the wheel.


thanks guys

any type of wheel cleaner should do the trick. just make sure you read the back label. some cleaners are more harsh than others.

how did a wheel "cleaner" scratch a wheel? usually it will dull it if its a polished aluminum or spot it up really bad. if you want to be carefull you can use a dish soap and clean the wheels. it wont do a great job on the tires though. I use a meguiers product. mothers also makes a good wheel cleaner and Im sure you can find something from the Adams polish witch is a vendor of this site.
