    Rim Cleaner

    What is the best rim cleaner to use to get the old brown stains (dirt and brake dust) off of a rim? I am trying to clean up my stock Z28 16" rims. I tried using the Mothers Polish I used on my Z06 rims, but really didnt do much.

    Thanks

    s100 makes a polishing soap that cleans well. try that and then use mothers/meguiars polishing ball/tool on a drill with polish of your choice (mothers, meguiars, wenthol, simichrome, ect.) to finish.

    Is there anything to be done if wheels are slightly pitted? I have the alloy (stock) zr1's and they, despite being curb rash free, are not in the best of shape. Any advice?

    I just watched a video on it. Good stuff. Going to have to try a bottle for sure. Been using cheap pads, so the dust is crazy...
