i really struggle to stay on top of these keeping these wheels nice. i could use some ideas on how to use metal polish close to the bolts? theres not enough room to make a back n forth motion to buff at the metal in the tight corners or around the bolts

any ideas please...and no i dont run them in winter:wall:

Soft toothbrush? Maybe a baby's brush?

Buy a Dremel kit. With the right attachment you should be able to get into most areas. Otherwise, purchase different wheels. Those are ghastly to clean.

Dremel... good idea, the wheels look great but like mentioned above look like a nightmare.

The idea with a wheel like this is to be dedicated to keeping them clean. Use a wheel cleaner that is safe for "all" wheels including polished aluminum. As long as you stay on top of them they wont be a problem. If you get behind, you'll pay!

I've got it! You could maybe even patent this idea and make some $$$ off of it. Take a socket(from your socket set) that is a few sizes bigger than the bolts placing a good quality MF towel over the opening, add appropriate metal polish and twist. Voila! As long as you keep a clean portion of the towel on it scratching should be kept to a minimum. Please let me know how this works.
