    I'm looking for a product to clean the flowers that isn't abrasive . I have Mcguires rim cleaner but it doesn't seem to cut through the dirt behind the spokes on the rim. I don't want to do too much brushing on the black painted part. Any preferred products and/or brushes you pros use? Thanks .

    And then consider picking up Mckee's Hydro Blue Sio2 coating to coat the wheels. I have some coming this week and it did make cleaning much easier.

    If they are truly that dirty bite the bullet and remove from the car. A good soft brissle brush and wheel cleaner, the are all pritty good. Set up some tipe of table so you dont need to be bent over doing this. Apply as directed and genty scrub rinse amd repeat. Once cleaned it will be ease to maintain. I do this when ever i rotate my tires.

    I use Maguire's all wheel cleaner (also works as a fall out cleaner too) and scrub with mit. However once a year before I switch back to the flowers for the summer I clean them very well and wax the wheels.

    When i rotate the wheels I'll usually spray the inside with glass cleaner and wipe them out.

    Best pratice is high preasure wash, de-iron, then clean with a good product that repels water.

    Yeah using a wash mitt is usually better then a wheel brush unless your a car dealer detailer then the mitt can get old really fast

    LATA (LA Totally Awesome) makes some products. If you really want to cut into that dirt and have a good mask handy, you can use Malco's wheel cleaner as well.

    I use Sonax wheel cleaner (breaks down iron particles) with a power washer. These are pretty easy wheels to clean, IMHO.
