Now, this in on the car.

How do you guys clean the barrels in the wheels of your cars? The calipers are so close to the barrel that I can't get it clean all the way to the back. Well, I can get them pretty good on the rears but not the fronts. I just hope that I wash it enough that I eventually get the front as far as I can reach (Just past the disk).

Do you guys take the wheels off? How do you make sure your wheels are clean right to the back?
I take the wheels off once a year.All other times I use ADAMs green wheel cleaner. Its an eco freindly liquid spray. Works great and is safe on all wheel finishes
with the Adams Green Wheel Cleaner I just spray and hose off the wheels with water weekly. Removes the brake dust, you can actully see it coming off when you turn the hose on. I will the use the Adams Detail Spray to keep the chrome car show ready.

You can orde them from Corvette Central , who are sponsors on this site .
Adams is an excellent product but most recently I have tried Griots which is also a very good product but is only available out of the USA direct or from two sponsored Tire Rack outlets. (The number one choice of Ferrari and Porsche owners)
I use a sponge glued to a paint stick .

Also I remove my painted wheels 2-3 times a year and use coats of liquid Glass .
Hey 4ryanr -- where you at? I'm on west side off GrandRidge near Cedar.

Im on Attwood near our vette guru Manny:seeya:
I take them off once a year and wax and the rest of the year use a detail wheel brush that is about 20" long and goes to the right to the inside with 2" soft bristles a handle on one end and the other end has rubber protection to not scratch the wheel. Works great and easy !!!
