I just bought some bronze Volk TE37's. I'm wondering what you would use to clean it. I don't want to use the wrong detergent or cleaner and chip or eat away at the paint.

Just try soak and water first.. it is the least agressive as all the other cleaners.. by the way the new wheels make your car look 10000000x better bro.. keep up the good work.. hold it down for us Jersey boys!

I used soap and water, but it ain't getting much of the dirt off. I tried using some "foamy wheel cleaner" shit at Autozone. It left like bubble marks on my wheels when it dries up.

I'll try that Meguiar's stuff. The reason I ask what type of cleaner you use is that I don't want the bronze paint to be ruined.

You should dry the wheels along with the car.. I have two Absorbers -one for the body/one for the wheels.

Try a clay bar if you have an old one laying around.. if not try the wheel cleaner made by a company called Detailer's Pride.
