    The cleaner is doing work. I’ll let them soak over night to get all the shit off and clean them tomorrow.

    Strong degreasers will usually fuck off bare aluminum.

    You would be better off getting products specifically for cleaning aluminum, wheel cleaner for the brake dust & polish after. If their super greasy a mild solvent or even gas would do less damage than a degreaser. A 3M scotch bright pad is great for getting the inner half to look new again so long as its not painted.

    The grim reaper stuff is okay to use on aluminum I believe.

    I use Zepalume acid on my tanker truck. The wheels and the tank. Then polish with mothers or white diamond polish. I use corn starch sprinkled on a micro fiber cloth to take off the polish.

    I've tried a lot of aluminum specific cleaners and they don't seem to do much after spending several hours on a wheel.

    might need to give this and grime reaper a try.

    This is the worst wheel but they all look pretty similar:

    Just dont use to much acid it will etch the wheels. I usually cut it with water 50/50 before i put it on the wheels. The finer the mist you can spray the better.

    Those do look pretty jacked up. Chemical guys has a product that looks interesting, its supposed to remove iron contamination from wheels. Its called "Decon Pro", might be worth a try.

    If all else fails you could wet sand them with some 600-1000 grit sandpaper & follow with aluminum polish.

    ETA: A 3M Scotchbrite pad would give them a brushed finish & be way less work

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
