Try a bit of wire wool with a bit of warm water and washing up liquid.

Autosol works a treat for me too!! Even when it's been left for ages to build up this stuff always does the trick

Good thinking I'll get one what did you opt for cone shape

They stay clean and sparkly for months if you wash them twice a week, but leave them for 2 or 3 weeks or so and they'll need polishing again, that soot is quite stubborn lol.

I had a cone which was good for the inner part but a flat disc would suit the rest easier as the cone fell apart lol

Polish mine with Meguiars NXT metal polish couple of times a year & maintain by squirting a bit of Meguiars wheel brightener when I wash most weeks
Works great for me:clap:
Dave:thumbsup:

Polish wtf lol.
I take mine to local immigrant car wash and they make them sparkle with a bit of wheel acid lol.
Stay clean couple of days then back for a wash and leather for a fiver lol

R5CHG 20th November 2013 09:44 PM

The only problem with the local immigrants is when they drop the sponge they just dunk it back into the soapy bucket and carry on washing, not realising they have picked up half a tonne of shingle! Learnt that the hard way!!

I think they look better sooted up!

Otherwise wire wool is the answer.

wmd_gtr 21st November 2013 12:24 AM

don't use wire wool lol... use autosmart g101 diluted 10:1 with water (10 parts water) if thats not strong enough move onto a 5:1 dilution and if thats not strong enough your exhausts haven't been cleaned in looonnnngggggg time and move onto autosol metal polish.

But give the car a quick snowfoam once a week, clean the wheels and clean the exhausts with G101 and keeping the car clean is no problem and that takes 15 minutes to do lol.

m33ufo 21st November 2013 12:35 AM

wire wool has always worked perfectly for me. Why would you specifically not use it?
