Thats what I suggest also. You dont want to mess with the finishes on your wheel with some super alloy cleaner. They can work against you! I've asked BBS and O.Z. Wheels as to what they suggest and its the same answer: soap and water.

Re: alloy wheels (97VenomGTI)

I use EAGLE ONE "A to Z" Wheel Cleaner. It works really good for the brake dust and it says to leave it on for about 15 seconds. It doesn't ruin the finish at all either. After that I go over the wheels with EAGLE ONE "Car Wash" (the red stuff, I use it for the car too) with a wash mit. After using that stuff it make the surrounding tire really dry so I normally give the tires a quickly waxing.
Come winter time and clean the wheels really well, wax them and apply a coat or two of TURTLE WAX "Tire Wax" so the tires stay soft and moist and don't dry up.

Re: alloy wheels (phat-black-dub)

Well aparently I have driven through a filled pothole that was completely finished. I now have tar stuck on my wheels. This happened about a month ago and I still haven't been able to get the crap off. What should I use if I need a super cleaning job?
