watch if you use those wheel cleaners in spray bottles...if you have painted calipers or stuff it will eat it away...i learned the hard way rofl grin They turned my red calipers BRIGHT BRIGHT ORANGE

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.
