Default Cleaning my wheels

I have white rota grids and im fairly good about keeping them clean but i cant get some of the dirt off of them no matter how much or how hard i scrub them i cant seem to get the wheels completely clean. My one buddy said i should try wet sanding them a little but idk if that will really help

Please let me know if you guys have any ideas on how to get the wheels completely clean

Thanks

Get some regular soap and you should be good.

I've used "purple cleaner" from Acme Auto to get some tough dirt off my wheels. Works great and they came out like new.

You probably have break dust imbedded into the paint. Look into IRON X, IRON Cut or Sonus Full Effect wheel cleaners. After that use some wheel wax and you won't have any problems.
