    The problem is the brake dust east into the clear. There's a reason mine are painted black.

    I am gonna try brake clean....maybe that will do something. Again not worried about the finish currently on there...but lacquer thinner didn't harm anything...

    Survey say: "Brown Royal" That shit is the bomb. Really surprised me. Sprayed it on all the wheels went around and agitated the holes with a conical brush and it took off everything that the brush could brush. I need to find a smaller brush to get into all of the little corners. But brown royal is by far the best thing to clean these wheels from my experience.

    I did some searches and it took a minute but I think the only place you can buy it is directly from their website.

    http://www.flashwax.com/tire-wheel.html

    Flash Brown Royal Non-Acid Wheel Cleaner. I dunno... if 87gtvic says it does the job I just might get me a bottle.

    Yeah I purchased it through their website. I picked up a big bottle of the stuff. They electrical taped the jug so nothing would seep out and put it into a big plastic bag. It definitely works and works much better with agitation.

    Glad that you had success with the Brown Royal cleaner! It truly is the best wheel cleaner I have found. I have yet to come across a wheel that it wouldn't clean.

    Looking at the prices it almost does not seem worth buying a quart as opposed to the gallon.

    Agreed. That is why I purchased the gallon. I figured after watching all the videos on u tube that I could use it in other ways if in fact it does not work.

    Just to update things....


    Brown Royal is still the bomb.

    HPPs are still not painted, blasted or refinished.

    One last season on my current tires then next summer (summer of 2017) I will dismount them and refinish in some manner. Not sure yet.

    Need to search for new tires. I want all high performance all seasons as these are my winter wheels and tires and would be driven in cold weather if there is no snow or moisture on the ground.

    Stock size is 225/60/16.

    Looking deeply into 235/60/16 and 245/50/16's.

    Forgot to update.

    Came out nice.

    They media blasted the center portion to prep it for a respray. A bunch elbow grease went into the polished lips.

    After watching the video I am glad I paid to have mine done.
