What to use on my wheels?

Question

I have a couple of shows this weekend and I need to work on cleaning up the barrels on my TBSS wheels. The previous owner did not care for them too well.

 

What do you think will work well on removing this grime. The turbo stick isn't strong enough. I'm going to pull them off and maybe try steel wool. Any other suggestions?

I don't think the fender brush will be strong enough. I have an extra carpet brush I can try working with the APC and GWC first.

 

Before I started using Adam's I took them off about 2 years ago and tried a degreaser and brush but it didn't get everything off well enough because of the grime inside the fine grooves of the barrels.

John, the barrels of my Greg Weld truck wheels look almost identical to the pic you posted above. They are chromed aluminum. Unfortunatley the barrels don't really get good chrome coverage, or perhaps it's more a function of poor surface prep. At any rate, I have successfully used 0000 steel wool to get the barrels clean and as close to new as possible. I follow that by a rub down with one of major wheel companies chrome cleaner. Just did them again last week for the summer. The one thing I did differently this time was to seal them with quick sealant, so I'm curious to see how they hold up until next cleaning.

Thanks for the responses. :bow: Figured the steel wool would do the trick. I had planned on using some QS once I had them to my liking of course.

 

Can you pick up #0000 steel wool at Home Depot? I have to head there tonight anyways.
