Rotor Cleaning... (Advice)

which product do you guys recommend to clean the stock rotors? The inner wheel housing and top of the rotor are a little rusty and I want to try polishing them up before I paint my calipers.

I'd rather clean the existing oem rotors for now instead of buying aftermarket. Any advice?

you have to use a toothbrush though

Yeah, steel wool or a steel brush should get the rust off. Then just sand it down.

Steel wool works great just make sure you wet the steel wool first.

itll just come back though... its inevitable, unless you bought new rotors (i.e. the AEM rotors)
