    That'll be hard. No shade for me to wash in - maybe a wispy cloud or too. It's hot as fukc too!

    I dont have much shade around here either, just make sure you do it one wheel at a time. Wet the wheel first, then spray it with the Simple Green, clean it with a sponge or whatever, and spray it off really good with water. You should be fine...

    I think I'll try the simple green and see how it works out. I know everyone says it's terrible to wash a car in direct sunlight and baking heat, but I do it all the time. I have no choice. It's either that or no wash at all.

    If you use any type of wheel acid be careful and leave it on the whels for 45-60 seconds an dmake sure your rince the wheels first then rince real well afterwards. I sell ZEP chemicals and have found that using a citrus based product works very well.

    and all of them are ads for your product. Nothing wrong with trying to sell here just become a vendor first.

    i remember bringing my old car to the detailer and watched him use this stuff in a compressed almost like mini keg container and it would come out as a mist let it sit on the wheels for about 20 seconds and hose it off and the rims looked immaculate...only downside if that whereever you have say the clear coat chipped off it would show up white..other than that i loved it..is there anything that strong that us DIYers can get over the counter???

    Normally just California Gold Car Wash solution.

    Anyone used Rejex as a sealant on their wheels? I've heard good things and think I'll give it a try.

    Castrol Super Clean!

    Never had a problem with it on stock rims (unpainted) and it will help you really clean the INSIDE of the wheel. I've never seen anything this good before but it is acid based.
