    go onto autobrite site and look at their very cherry wheel stuff. Lump introduced me to it, ot's amazing stuff. Then wax your wheels with rimwax and they will shine and be easy to clean next time.

    HTH,

    here, you dilute it about 4-1. spray it on and leave for a short while then wash off.

    I used to use meguiars wheel cleaner but Wonder wheels seems to make the silver really light and sparkly (And its a good bit cheaper)

    depends on the state of the wheels ? have they got loads of stuck on break dust ? in which case you may need some thing stronger

    I find Meguires wheel brightner to be very good. But if you tend to wash the wheels regularly and apply a wheel wax or sealent, they tend to either stay a little cleaner, or the dirt come off easily.
