    I have tried a ton of products and I have a hard time getting the brake dust and grime off my rims. The aluminum 01 rims are not smooth so crap gets stuck in them and sometimes when I scrub and scrub the crap still doesn't come of.

    What products work well that you use?

    try some eagle1 all wheel cleaner......good stuff there. but if the wheels are in bad shape(alotta brake dust), let the cleaner sit for a few minutes, and a second round may be needed.

    I will try that. It just seems that no matter what I use, I scrub and scrub and sometimes it doesn't all come off. I love the cleaners that say to spray on and hose off...what a crock of bs.

    yeah, spray on/hose off only works if the wheel is basically new, of if one has never been polished/waxed.

    try using hot water too, along with the eagle1......it will probably help.
