what to use for wheel cleaning/brake dust removal?
i have some 18" boss chromes on my truck... my normal regimine is to use nxt metal polysh and wheel wax, but thats basically for the polishing step...
i'd like suggestions on a good pre-treatment wheel cleaner. i mean, before i polish and wax the wheels. I had been just hosing them off, then wiping them down with a damp rag, however just hosing them off doesnt remove enough brake dust and dirt, so i've noticed that when i wipe it down clean after with a rag, theres still brake dust and dirt there that can scratch my wheels when i'm wiping em off (and its already happened... there are very very faint scratches on the dish from wiping em down.)
i need a wheel cleaner that i can spray on and hose off, that will take off as much dirt and dust as possible before i wipe em down. any suggestions?
