    Poorboy's Spray and Rinse

    edit: and the people that don't use it, yes, they do take the time to wipe the spokes

    its not that hard..

    this is what i do:
    give them a really good cleaning the first time, followed by a quick wax, and then the next time a wash is needed, takes a minute each wheel.

    pressure washer and a good wheel cleaner gets a majority off, but still have to go back over individually by hand

    Simple green and a long handled brush on a broom handle. Wet it, spray it, scrub it while standing off, wash off. Respray, rebrush, rewash. Now hit it by hand for loose ends. Shouldn't take longer than 4 minutes a wheel for 95% clean.

    Bit of a bump but...

    Bought a new car the other day:

    Most annoying wheels in the world ever. I need to get some proper wheel cleaner, might try the poorboys stuff. I used Doktor Power to try and get the brake dust off as it looks like they have never had a proper clean :(

    Worked quite well but took a lot of effort and after 2 wheels my hands were hurting, need to buy a toothbrush :big grin:

    I have heard Wonder Wheels is good?

    Honestly, I'd get some nice 5 spoke wheels and ceramic pads. I clean those S550 wheels every single damn week and even though I get paid for it, I still fucking hate cleaning them.
