Cleaning black brake dust off white wheels

Postby Siggo on Tue Aug 21, 2007 4:37 pm

The ongoing chore of the TME owner and many others.
Try "handy Andy" pink liquid.
If it's really bad, apparently you can leave it on overnight then clean it off.
Seemed to work better than normal commercial wheel cleaner.
