Here's what mine look like:

If you are searching for perfection, you need to fix your centre caps! :-) They aren't concourse ready like that.

Haha......"in search of perfection" was a tad tongue in cheek. I'll not be entering any concourse events soon. I just want fairly clean wheels. And I'll not be spending a few hundred dollars on new center caps!

Although I did spend $17 on black valve stem covers with colored crests! And one of the crests fell off on the first day (not good, Suncoast).

Winner! For me, Griot's garage is the best I've tried. Took off most of the baked on brake dust with just a spray on and agitation with a bristled wheel brush and rinse off. For some of the really tough spots in the crevasses, some medium scrubbing with a non-abrasive pad was all it needed.

I just received my Griot's Garage and was so anxious to try it I went out and used it in the dark, so no pics yet. Maybe on the weekend - when I can apply a coat of Rejex, too.

Thanks for the recommendation, Jay!

This is the Purple cleaner from Orchard Supply at full strength, with a little detailing in the corners. I need a brush for the lug nuts, and will be happy.

I like the idea of the wax on the rims, I think that will help the weekly upkeep. What kind do you recommend?

I think any wax would work to provide a non-adhesive barrier after you get the wheels clean, but I'm going to try Rejex. Its a sealant, and I understand a lot of the track guys use it with success (I shudder at the amount of brake dust they generate).

If you are looking at a wax specifically for wheels, maybe, otherwise the heat will break it down quickly
check out rejex, it lasts 3-6 months
