Cleaning chrome wire wheels

I've cleaned a few sets over the years and assuming the chrome is all good I begin by de-greasing the wheel to clean off the splined hub grease which always gets flung out as the car is driven. A spray over with Bilberry wheel cleaner (or your favourite) and then its down to a toothbrush or similar on the hub centre and the rim, and a two foot length of that thick hairy string wrapped around each the spokes to clean those................. and Borrani used a lot of spokes !!! Wash with fresh water and repeat if required............ I find it quite therapeutic and a Workmate is just the right height for me to work comfortably.
I also clean the splined hub on the vehicle because people only ever slap more grease on, it's easy, shows that you care and it's attention to detail. Only a light coat of grease is needed when the wheel goes back on.
Enjoy.

A membership to the local gym sounds less strenuous
No results without effort

Add to the above a couple of coats of Belgom Chromes for protection and ease of further cleaning
