    Need some advice on a good Wheel/Rim cleaner.
    They get really dirty real fast. Any good one's out there that are fairly simple and do a good job of course. :)

    My son and his friends do a pretty good job, but I don't think that's exactly what you're asking.

    Sadly, I don't think you'll find anything that will make those wheels look better than some aluminum polish and lots of elbow grease.

    I was using the Meguire's wheel cleaner on my truck but had a bad experience with it last year. From now on I think I'm going to just stick with the soap that I use on the paint.

    I usually use Simple Green, 50/50 mix.

    If it is bare aluminum I would only use aluminum polish like the Mothers in a can. You can then put some Carnauba after to help it last a little longer. I think most of the wheel cleaners on the shelf are meant for coated wheels, like the OEM wheels are done. Meguairs has a cleaner spray for bare aluminum, but I found it is not better than car wash soap and water.

    Good stuff so far! It is bare aluminum and I think ur right about most cleaners. I've found that some leave a film on afterwords. The Carnauba is a good idea.

    I just use regular car soap in my uncoated wheels .

    I clean them more often than my cars with coated wheels to reduce any build up that would require any type of cleaner.
