I decided to give my wheels a clean but i wasn't all that successful, attached is a before and after shot... now as you can see the brake dust has made a permanent home in the corner there (one of many corners actually) and so I'm looking for suggestions on ways to clean it, anything other than painting over it :roll:

Let this be a lesson for the lazy lol

go down to autoone or repco and get some rim degreaser

spray it on nice and plentiful and let it soak for a good 10mins, just keep on layering it on during the 10mins

then a sponge with soapy water, and go hard

I ended up giving jif a go today and it works (thanks to Dale you know who you are)! And as somebody else said would happen, I soon grew tired of scrubbing and scrubbing and decided to just live with it lol
I'll end up sand blasting and powder coating them anyways so it'll be perfect then :)

Try the Autoglym wheel cleaner for anodized wheels - gets most stuff off including loose melted tyre bits, random oil/fluids and baked-on brake dust.
