In the past, my wheels have been extremely easy to clean. All of the dirt would just wipe off in one swipe. I wash my car every week and run stock brakes so that is to be expected...
I started thinking what might have changed and the only thing is the tire shine that I'm using. The week before last, I started using the Meguiars Endurance instead of the Meguiars Hot Shine.
Has anyone had any experience with this same issue? Should I simply be more careful when applying the Endurance type tire shine? Should I switch back to my old tire shine?
How might I get this grime off my wheels?
It looks like dried on tire shine.
Try using all purpose cleaner to strip it, following with a wheel cleaner and agitate it with a brush. Best of luck bro!
