I watched a video of a guy on youtube from america attacking his wire wheels with a little bit of soapy water and this cone sponge on the end of a drill, work pretty well.

Try get something called cyko. Same as muc off but hideously strong. Worked on my wheels that had been sat in a scrappy for a while.

I aggree with the bilberry but I find the best way to get it off is to avoid ot getting on I.e. Clay them get them up to ure standard and then seal then withsome rim wax. Then any fresh dust just washes off with a simple wipe over

Is Bilberry bad for polished wheels??

Its a reasonably strong alkaline (ph of about 11 IIRC)

So does that mean its ok to use on polished rims or not? :confused:

I have no idea, I spent my college days taking drugs.

Someone else may know though! It doesnt have any warnings on the bottle (like wonder wheels does) so I would guess it will be ok. - dilute it down and dont leave it on too long

As I stated in that edition link Bilberry is a no no for polished wheels.

As for the original question, go for Bilberry or Wolf's decon gel.
