Nothin complicated.. Just buy some Mothers Wheel Mist Wheel Cleaner, spray it on your wheels, let sit for the recommended period of time then was it off. There will be a bit of dust still left on your wheels, so just take an old tshirt or terry cloth and polish.

You'd be suprised how well commercial wheel cleaners work with no scrubbing at all. It all depends on teh finish of your rim. I'd use that brush if absolutely neccesary on brushed aluminum...but if you've got some highly polished or coated rim, you never know what might be in that brush. Some jerk could've gone in there and put a wire, or some other crap in those bristles and you'll be sorry.

I'm with Boom Stick. the Mothers stuff is great. i've tried a bunch of different brands, and this one requires almost no touching (unless you're wheels are really bad and neglected) even then, it's pretty amazing.

just make sure you get the right one, there is a red and a yellow bottle, depending on if your wheels are "factory finish" clear coat, or chrome/alloy
