    Nurburgring Edition Rims

    Right, all you Nurburgring Edition owners like myself.....How do you keep your white multispokes clean?????

    What Do you use to get in the corners that just clog with brake dust, as i dont have triangle finger ends to get in those hard to reach places!!!

    I must add the large front brakes are generating ALOT of heat, which is adding to the brake dust problem. as its effectively baking onto the rim.

    get a selection of brushes to get in the nooks and crannies. also a good wheel cleaner like megs hot rims/billbery.

    once cleaned apply some wheel sealant to protect them and it will aid washing in the future. use some poorboys wheel sealant or chemical guys wheel guard.

    get some megs wheel brightener. Strong stuff, use at 10:1 dilution. works out very cost effective!
    The acids should be OK on your rims as their are stock painted. Not cromed etc.

    I shouldnt worry about the acids.

    I used Wheel Brightener on some factory painted Lenso rims before, and it reacted badly. WB is a very good deep cleaner, but it is harsh. I've notw switched to Bilberry.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
