Finally got around to cleaning them.

Yep I finally had the time to clean the backs of my wheels, they were really bad. I used the good ole grinder with a 5" wire wheel to get all that caked on break dust off, then used simple green and a scotch pad to get whatever was left. I also got the backs of the tires. They turned out pretty good.

onto some pics:

No I'm not selling them, They just needed some attention other than just polishing them. It only took me about 45 minutes per wheel to do this and polish the front side.
