Default Cleaning these wheels.....

OK, I officially hate cleaning the stock, black F80 wheels. Never had such hatred for cleaning wheels before these things. Clean them, look clean, dry and still dirt and I have to wash all over again. Use Sonax Full Effect as well. Anyone have a good brush they use or some sort of sponge they can recommend?

Default Re: Cleaning these wheels.....

Those wheel woolies seem to be pretty popular.

I normally use Sonax and left it sit for about 3 minutes of so to decontaminate the wheels. Recently got a bottle of Nanolex Wheel cleaner in a Mystery Box that seemed to work pretty well. However, I'm not cleaning black wheels so it is easier to see the dirt.

Good luck!

I'd say just take your time and clean them as well as you possibly can, then coat them with something. I've seen wheel waxes. I think Ammo NYC does a good one, then you won't have to deal with it as badly in the future?
