    I'm finally getting around to waxing the car tomorrow.

    We'll see how Black Magic works.

    Car wash soap and some elbow grease... The only way to keep brake dust under control is to use some sort of protectant like RejeX. Most waxes, including synthetics will not last long on a wheel.

    meguiars HOT WHEELS in a pink bottle is a great product, simple green is really good........simple green is good for heavy brake dust, the hot wheels is great for the super hard burnt on brake dust (like thick black brake dust speckles)..... always use a powerwasher, which does about 95% of the work ..
    good luck post some before and after pics

    It will. I'd also lay down a couple coats of wheel sealant to prevent having difficulties removing brake dust in the future.

    Baked on Brake Dust

    I forsee a long day Saturday detailing my wheels. Maybe I can borrow my friend's power washer. I used Meguire's Hot Rims before with poor results, but I think it was because my wheels were damp when I used it.

    I'll post before and after pics. I also have a clay bar so I'll give that a whirl if all else fails.

    You have to check the lables. I know a lot of cleaners are corossive to the clear coat on wheels.

    yeah there alot that are good just some that are bad.


    I found the trick wikth wheels is to really keep on it. If any brake dust sits for any amount of time it starts to get harder to clean and it seems to stick more.
