    I just got it!
    Today I took all my wheels off and scrubbed my suspension and wheel wells and the inside of each rim.

    Too far? Does anyone else do this ever?

    I usually scrub the wheel well with an old broom and soap water...You could eat out of there.

    I just use an old wheel brush when I wash it.:D not spotless, but not that dirty

    but I have fairly new wheels, so they aren't that dirty on this inside yet

    Get some Back to Black and mix it 50/50 with water. Spray it in there and work it over with an old towel. Nice satin look and the wells just disappear. They make products just for this sole purpose. Adam's Invisble Undercarraige Spray and Chemical Guys Bare Bones are two of such products. Also, Meguiar's makes a product called Hyerdressing. You mix to different ratios for different levels of shine. Good stuff.

    I do it every time I rotate tires/oil change. Makes the truck look so much better. Even during regular washes I get the plastic inner fenders and wash the engine. Still looks new after 40k.

    This sounds like something I'm going to look into.

    Just so everybody knows, I'm a NUT when it comes to auto detailing, but I don't have a very good product knowledge of detailing products. I still put more elbow grease into it than anyone else I know, but there's a few products I may have overlooked.

    I use CG bare bones and it is an awesome product! Dont use it in your driveway though, it'll stain :)
    And also, look in to an EZ Detail brush. Makes cleaning the inner barrells considerably easier in between full-on cleanings like this.

    I just cleaned my wheel wells and suspension components today for the first time ever with Simple Green, scrub brush, followed by a rinse, followed by cheap tire foam to shine it all up. It looks $$$! Like, 1000x better than if I had ignored all that wheel well grime. Do it!
