    I have a question for you detailing pros.

    I just bought a set of used wheels, and they are very dirty. There looks to be some black tarish substance caked on the backs of some. They are just overall dirty. I want to bring them back to looking like new. What products should I use? Something strong that won't hurt the finish?

    TIA,

    -Will

    There should be a few products in the product list that may help, Simple Green or a citrus cleaner also works well, but if the stuff is caked on too hard for a cleaner or even wheel polish to work you will have to have them professionally stripped and recoated, which runs about $100 a wheel, but they will look brand new.

    Awesome, I wasn't sure if simple green would be safe for my wheels, but if you say it is, ill go ahead and break it out.

    Thanks,
