Really Good Wheel Cleaner

I had been looking for a way to clean the brake dust off my wheels ever since I bought my truck 14months ago. The brake dust buildup on the wheels was really bad and even going to the car wash and using the foaming brush wouldn't do anything. So I asked a couple of people and found a product at the auto parts store that seems to do a great job. I tried it last weekend, just sprayed it on and used a wheel brush to scrub a little and the wheels looked like they did when I first picked her up. The stuff really works, and it also supposedly puts a layer of protection on the wheel so that next time the dust starts to build up, it should just spray right off.
I'll get the name of the stuff and post it later on.

My roommate and I use this stuff called Wire and Wheel cleaner. I THINK it's a Meguires Product. We can't find it anywhere locally, he had to get it online...it's a little expencive, but one bottle will take your wheels from "Haven't been cleaned in 40 years" to "Brandnew" in about 15 mins. It has some sort of acid it in. Spray it on liberally, wait 2-2 1/2 mins, and rinse off w/ hose. Then wipe the wheels down with a micro fiber towel...goto the next wheel and repeat. Do it about 3-4 times per wheel and they'll be new looking. After that, all you have to do is clean 'em regualr like every week or two. Works on all types of wheel materials.

my truck has the brake dust problem also, after i finish washing the paint, i wash my wheels and steps with the same soap, I use my finger to clean the break dust out of the holes in the wheels, works great. I know that if i use tire shine on my tires it attracts the break dust 10X times more

Start off with a good set of low dust brake pads, and save yourself 1/2 the hassle.
