Re: [DML] Re: Cleaning the wheels



 
I always thought the nice thing about my grey wheels was that they already look like they're covered in brake dust, so you can't tell when they are dirty!
 
Seriously though, I always liked the early cars, but never particularly liked the dark wheels.  Over the last couple of years, they've grown on me and I kind of like the "dying breed" status.

Black Magic... and is just called "Wheel Cleaner"). I was wondering if someone
