Exclamation Help W Wheels

Ok so I have a problem with my wheels and I dunno what to do anymore .
My wheels have been damaged by the brakes' oil and as much as I've tried pretty much anything, I cant still get their old shine back .
They have this dark brown (specially on the front wheels) which becomes light brown when washed but never goes away! Help please!

you may have to use some cleaning chemicals... That would concern me because the chemicals may harm some of the piant finish as well.

If you have a local Meguiars Distributor Try Meguiars Wheel Brightener @ 1 part chemical and 4 parts water. Pour water first into spray container before adding wheel brightener. Always add chemical to water rather than water to chemical. Spray onto wheel ( work on one wheel at a time ), let it sit for 30-40 seconds then use a brush to scrub then rinse. If you did not get the desired result start the process over again. Be sure to thoroughly rinse the wheels after using this product. Don't let the product dry onto your wheels. ***Only use Acid based cleaners on Chrome or Clear Coated Wheels.

Also if you have a Poorboys Distributor you could use Spray and Rinse. Same dillution ratio. ( Same process as wheel brightener )

Becareful as these are acid based cleaners. Wear gloves and be weary of the wind direction.

They will clean up those brown stains right up.

Good luck and keep us updated. Oh a couple of places to pick up these products online are autodetailingsolutions.net for wheel brightener and detailedimage.com for spray and rinse by poorboys.

Cheers,
Nick
