Cleaned mine up today... guys, the wheel cleaning sucks LOL. I washed them normal routine. Dried the car, pulled it into garage. The black wheels show EVERYTHING. Ended up spraying some Griotts speed shine on a cloth and finishing them out in a few spots. Anyone with the CF wheels using any sort of cleaner chem?
I use Castrol Super Clean Wheel Cleaner.
It helps, but it's not magic.
I got my Vibe R replica wheels. Surprisingly enough, the gloss black does not appear near as dirty as the stock finish on the base wheels. And washing/detailing/dusting these is leaps and bounds easier than the stockers!!! Until the EBC pads come out, these R wheels are the best money I’ve spent to combat brake dust, LOL.
I have found that using a layer of jetseal allows me to just hose mine off once a week or so. Made a giant difference, no more scrubbing.
Where does one buy jetseal? Sounds worth a try.
You can pick it up on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Chemical-Guys...70_&dpSrc=srch
I use it on all of my vehicles about once a year, then wax over it as needed. I did my wheels about a month ago and so far all they have needed to bel cleaned is a stiff shot from a hose. I pulled them to lube my brakes and gave the wheels a coat of jetseal while I had them off the car. So I was able to get inside the barrels as well.
Cleaning your car could be worse. You could live in Midland, TX, like I do. It's all I can do to wash the car without very hard water drying on it and leaving spots. It drives me crazy. I spend more time keeping the car wet, to try and avoid water spots, than I do actually washing it. But, I always end up with water spots. Glad to have bought a white GT.
