    I've heard the name Alcoa before, but not of their wheel cleaning products. I would be hesitant to use any type of spray on wheels though. If the wheels are even a little bit hot, sprays can streak and etch the finish. The polishes should be okay if you follow the directions though.

    Perhaps I will pick some up and tell everyone of the results?

    Sounds like a good idea, however, keep Scott's post in mind when using any spray product. I have also heard of Alcoa, I believe they acutally make aluminum wheels. I see some Alcoa trucks coming into where I work (major ACDelco part manufacturer).

    Sadly, right now I don't have to worry about the wheels being too warm. Ice on the driveway almost had me laying flat earlier. :mad: I can't see much in depth detailing happening for a few months.

    Its still good advice either way, since I didn't know it.

    What I am talking about is the heat generated by braking. It can take the wheels a good 30 minutes to cool down after driving.
