I Searched I Swear!

kinda suprised i didnt find any solid direct results, but my question is this... BTW i didnt know if this should go here or in detailing forum so mods move it if im mistaken...

my question: I know wheel cleaning is a chore and everyones gotta do it, but there has to be a way to remove brake dust atleast a little easier than just scrubbing every mm of the wheel, can you guys recommend a good/safe wheel cleaner that breaks up brake dust and wont harm my OEM 18's

thanks

Detailing forum would be my guess, but $100 and a set of ceramic pads would mean soap and water from now on. They're great and I wouldn't go back for anything.

Try Eagle F1 wheel cleaner and also put a light coat of wax on your wheels after you wash them. It keeps the brake dust off longer and makes clean up easier the next time around because the dust cannot cake onto your wheels.
