I remember reading a message about cleaning your stock rims. Well I attempted this yesterday, and was greatly surprised at my results.

here's a pic of the before.

here is the after shot.

here are the tools i used


Here's how I did it now.
<LIST>
  • Spray the Super Clean (or any other de-greaser) on the rim, let it soak for about 30 seconds to a minute.
  • Take a Scrub pad (available at Canadian Tire for $2) an old toothbrush will also work. and scrub the hell out of the rim, get in all the little crevices, nooks, and crannies. Confused? Just scrub a lot.
  • Rinse it clean, and repeat if necessary.
</LIST>

I Only did one cleaning of this rim, so if you look closely there is still dirt on it, but look how bad it was before, pretty good for 5 mins work.
I love my digital cam (instant Pictures =)

Update on the rim cleaning.
I used a product called Armoral Rim Cleaner

that worked incredibly well. I used a Brass wire brush (for cleaning rims) they just sparkle now.

just updating incase anyone wants to do their rims.

Also if you have a buffer it'll shine a lot more. (buff the aluminum to a chrome like shine) might take some time though.
