Meguire's Hot wheels.....

but im not sure if anything will take off that rust stuff...
the rust you see is actually little tiny fillings of metal from you brake pads that have come off while they were red hot and embeded themselfs into the rim...

the only way to prevent it is to clean your rims on a regular basis....

I use PS21 Wheel Cleaner because it's not an acidic agent. Only thing is after you spray them onto the rims, you have to let it settle there for a few minutes to work its way into the dirt. It works really well IMO.

i wanna know what they use in the dealership or this one place that did my undercoat.
everytime i used to go to the dealer with "clean rims" they clean them even better the stuff i could never get off.

or my winter wheels were sitting in my basement the whole year and still had a layer of brake dust on them. when i put them on and washed the wheels i couldnt get the stuff off anymore. then i did the undercoat at some place and they got the wheels like new. but i forgot to ask what they used there
