yea, always read what the wheel cleaner is for...some are stronger than others...

I use a combination of spray nine and...shit, i don't remember the wheel cleaner...
but anyway, the combo works great, my dumb lug nuts always rust inside if i don't dry them well and this stuff takes the rust off...

then after that, i use soap and water while i am doing the rest of the car.

Just a heads up DON"T USE ANY WHEEL CLEANERS ON A HOT WHEEL.Especially a new one the clear coat will soften and get damaged.

seriously, Sara, soap and water is really your best bet unless they're REALLY dirty and you need something more abrasive.
