Thumbs up

Hi Guys,

I'm new to your forum and I just purchased an '04 330ci Mystic Blue. One of the things I noticed is how quickly the brake dust accumulates on the wheels. Anyone has any suggestions on how to remove it without hurting the wheel? Also the rims that come on the Sport Package for the 330 are at times hard to clean because of the shape any suggestions?

Thanks

Typically just buy some rims cleaner in the form of a spray...just give it a few sprays and let it sit for a minute. Then use a tire brush and scrub the rims. That shouldn't damage your rims.
