This question is to anyone who has BBS CH wheels (or any BBS Wheel in silver finish for that matter). With so many products on the market, I wondered if anyone could tell me what they have found to be the best? For now, I have just been keeping them clean with my current car wash soap. Any spray on cleaners you can suggest, to remove the brake dust...so I can spray and rinse?(on the lazy feeling days ) Thanks!

I have the factory BBS 17" similar to the CH and was wanting some help with this as well. The best I have found so far is an Eagle one product and a tile grout brush. Still takes longer to clean the wheels than the rest of the car.

Thanks for the response. I know what you mean about taking a while to clean them. When you take the extra time to clean them, they sure do look nice though. I will have to check the Eagle one products out.

after cleaning your wheels, you should put on some wheel wax. the dust should come off much easier by just wiping it off. will cut down on your washing them.

try buying p21s wheel cleaner gel. it's one of the best wheel cleaners i've ever used. by the way, german cars shed massive amounts of brake dust so you will probably never get the wheels clean by spray and rinsing.
