I hate having brake dust on my alloys. Don't those white ones drive you balmy? Lol
I often see cars with shiny clean bodies but completely brown wheels - how on earth do people wash their cars and not do anything about their filthy wheels!?

Have something to contribute?

It's a pain in the *** im not going to lie! They look absolutely amazing when they're clean though. I'd say they start looking dirty after 4 days of driving 9 miles each way to work and back :P

Unlike any other wheels I've had in the past though these are incredibly easy to clean, just water, shampoo and a sponge and they're as good as new

Ah mine aren't so easy to clean. Even after jet washing I still need to get down on my hands and knees and clean between each spoke, one at a time. grrrr

Ditto again... So much so I got mocked for it.

I would be cleaning it straight away if mine was that dirty. Black cars look soooo good when clean, just a shame they show all the dirt.

However, that would show on any colour car...! :P

In my defence I'd driven about 170 mile, probably 70 of it on wet and dirty country roads. And with another 250 miles in the days ahead I wasn't gonna bother looking for a jetwash in a place I've never been before lol

Fair enough ;) Is it still in that state though? Because cleaning it would have been my first task on arrival back home :P

:unsure: it might be yes.


At home my fiesta parks on the street opposite a neighbours black Audi A1, and we're always both cleaning them wanting the most shiny of the cars. Personally I think the fiesta always wins coz of it's gold flake - so its nice to let my neighbour win for once. lol
