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

Do you use any tools/methods to get past the rotor/caliper? Or, do you just clean up to the rotor and not worry about what's past the rotor until the wheels come off?

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.

I like the idea of no scrubbing. The less elbow grease, the better.

Beer sounds great!

Are your wheels polished or do they have a cleat coat?

I think I may just end up taking the wheels off as others do.

Where do you buy your Adam's products? I've heard so much about them but can't find them anywhere.

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 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 !!!
