What do you use to wash the inside of your alloy wheels?

MATE! to wash the inside of your wheel you need to remove the wheel from the car and use some hard yakka and commonsense and clean using brushes or sponges etc

That should remove the brake dust and alike.

Sorry mate but seems to me you are posting useless posts? May I suggest starting one post as "Automotive Noob Questions" and have all these pointless (well not pointles but none the less) in one thread and it won't make you look like a noob.

Geoff.

Any soap will do the job. Elbow grease helps alot.

falcon1999, if you don't have any elbow grease in the workshop, go here for a tub or two.

i just use hot soapy water... and a rag... lifts easy if you clean them shiney once a week.. :idea: :wink:

if you let it build up.. the brake s**t stains and is a b**ch to get clean.. although carby cleaners helps...
