    I left my car in the garage when I went to Florida. I came back and took the car to get it washed. When I came home, I noticed that the front wheels still had alot of black brake dust on them. I thought that I could just scrub them and it should come off. That didn't happen. It seems to be on there pretty good. I started to think that it was rust because it would just not come off. Is there anything that yall would recommend using to get it off. I can take it to a detailer but it couldn't be that on there. Thanks for all the help.

    Meguire's All wheel Cleaner....turns loose all the brake dust that I have run into.

    If the wheels are chrome, try some chrome cleaner...if polished, Neverdull works very well, as does Simichrome.

    Sometimes even Dawn soap works if you let it sit and use a toothbrush.

    I use clay on the stubborn spots..
    That is... if the Eagle-One wheel cleaner doesn't get it..
    Then a very heavy coat of wax/polish... so it cleans up easier... next time.

    Eagle-One mag and chrome polish. I run into the same problem with my stock chrome rims if I don't wash the wheels on a regular basis. I just use the chrome polish when that happens and the brake dust comes off fairly easily.

    since its chrome, try soapy water and some #000 steel wool.
