In Reply to: Need wheel cleaner recommendation... posted by JoeHH on March 07, 2001 at 21:58:02:

It takes off the loose dust instantly - but then soap and water does that. It takes off much of the hard stuff after a short wait, with no damage to the M wheel finish. Pep Boys.

I still have a bit of black left in the corners of my wheels. I plan to use a toothbrush and the cleaner to get this. But the stuff in the corners is solid hard.

I read elsewhere on the internet that someone uses "Oil Flow Safety Solvent" to remove the hardened dust, with great success. But I have searched and not found it in any local stores. And only one place on the internet, and it seemed like you had to be a member to buy it.

Most folks hereabouts are such car cleanliness buffs that they have never seen hardened brake dust - so I would take most recommendations with a grain of salt.

Greetings all. I have a massive buildup of brake dust on my wheels (what's new?). I usually use water, soap, a cloth mit and some elbow grease. But last time, I couldn't get some of the gunk off to save my life. Can you guys recommend a wheel cleaner that WON'T eat the paint off my wheels?

Thanks all,
'00 M coupe
