    Question Cleaning alloys

    The alloys on my 56 Siggie 2.2 Direct are discolouring badly already at only 22k. Anyone know of the best alloy wheel cleaner on the market? I used Wonder Wheels on my last motor (french ****) and it did an excellent job in cleaning but seemed to be assisting in actually breaking down the finish as corrosion was setting in on all wheels. I believe that Wonder Wheels actually contains hydrochloric acid??

    Have a look in the AutoBrite section and get some of their Brite Wheels. It's acid free, being using it for a while now and works great even at high dilution.

    if they are realy bad wonder wheel's is very good, then give them a good seal and wax, then with every clean of the car use an acid free cleaner like the one from AUTOBRIGHT DIRECT in the approved trader's section.....
