How to clean caked-on brake dust
a buddy told me a guy he knew had a set of wheels of an '04 Intrepid SXT. He wanted fifteen dollars for all four. So I had to go see them. Now I know why they only wanted fifteen dollar. These things have the worst, thickest, caked-on brake dust I have ever seen. I've tried one of the auto-store spray-on cleaners, and no results.
I've tried scrubbing them with a soft nylon brush, no results.
Anybody know how I can clean these wheels? Am I going to have to get a can of Brasso and some ultra-fine steel wool?
These are the polished aluminum wheels that came on the SXT's. I'm hiding them in the garage so as not to scare the neighbors.
