Cleaning neglected wheels

First remove the wheels (one at a time, BE SURE TO USE JACK-STANDS!!)
Wash the wheel with P21S GEL wheel cleaner or Sonus Rim Bright. It WILL need two or three times to get "most" of the brake dust off.
Now use detail clay and lube to remove the rest of the stuck on brake dust.
The final step will be to use Klasse All In One sealant. This also has chemicals cleaners that will remove ANY remaining brake dust but is safe for your wheels. Plus it will protect from future brake dust from sticking.
Here is a set of wheels I did this past winter for a friend who never cared for his 325 wheels.

Wheel cleaner

"Awesome" cleaner degreases engines and brake dust also. Spray it on and wipe it off. Can be purchased at Dollar Tree stores. Let me know if you cant get it, I will ship it to you.
