    Nice job. Now you just need some good wax to keep it protected...

    Did you have to scrub them with anything or did you just let the foam work it's magic?

    advance auto or napa carries acid for the rims works great on chrome and polished wheels.

    DO NOT use that on clear coated or painted wheels though. Its nasty stuff, may also be called "etching" wheel cleaner for mag wheels. Very acidic.

    I use Eagle 1 All Wheel and Tire Cleaner when my wheels are really dirty, but typically I just use car wash soap for normal washes. I waxed my wheels, so using any wheel cleaner would completely defeat the purpose of waxing them since it would strip it right off.

    I had the same problem with my wheels on my T/A ... this stuff works miracles. I have tried at least 5 different wheel cleaners and this is the only one that did the job !

    Very nice results...a great product I've used for stains, break dust, etc is P21S wheel cleaner and P21S wheel cleaner gel. A little on the expensive side but I have always had great results with it.

    This is good to know we still have my gf's tiburon with factory silver wheels. I always just buy the chrome wheel cleaner for my car and truck and use soap and a old sponge on here wheel buy if this works easy I'll have to try it. Usually I either sell my factory wheels or have them chromed so I've never owner silver wheels except on the 93 lx had gray pony wheels. I repainted them with high metallic silver and cleared them since they come a dull gray and used some spray one wheel protectant and the dust and dirt came off with on quick wipe. Once I have that shipped from Fl it's been a 6 years since they were painted so time to have them chromed.
