    Default Cleaning Citroen "Steelies"

    Hi, not entirely sure where to post but here goes, dumb question Thursday!

    I have a set of the fabled 15" Citroen "steely" light alloy wheels. They are indeed very light (weighed at 4.7kg) but there's a lot of baked on brake dust on the surface.

    I don't know the metallurgy of the wheels so I'm a bit cautious of using standard chemical alloy wheel cleaner to shift the bulk of it. What do you think?

    Otherwise I'll just attack it with soapy water, a stiff brush and high pressure water.

    I used this on Berlingo steel wheels (the standard one painted silver):

    It worked really well. Still needed a little scrubbing though.

    Make sure you take the wheels off the vehicle before spraying this on though.
