Default how to remove wax from bronze volk te-37's?

I was cleaning my wheels the other day and heard slapping a light coat of wax on top will help cleaning the brakedust and other road contaminants easier for the next few washes. However, I can't seem to remove all the wax as there is still white residue on the wheels. I can especially see it in the sun. it makes my wheels look dull because of the white cake on it. I think because the wheels are "pourous" it makes taking out the wax harder.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to remove the wax?

Rub harder. I have the CE-28n's. I use wax to keep my wheels nice. Instant detailer works too.

yea, you might first try buffing it harder to see if the wax will shine up (sometimes takes a lot of elbow grease).

If not use some Klasse All-in-one. It will remove the old wax and leave a very thin coat of its own. Rub it on, let dry for only a minute or two (doesnt need to haze like wax) then buff off.

You can use a detail spray like Shining monkey Detailer to help remove the excess wax.
We use RejeX instead of wax as it is easier to apply and remove, especially on wheels.

Dawn will remove the wax but it will all remove the protective properties which is why you go through the trouble of waxing you wheels in the first place. I use Prima wheel Armour polish and sealant works great easy on and off!

Wax helps keep the wheels clean just like your car. If you're having problems removing it, get a clean microfiber cloth and rub harder. Use quick detailer to make it a bit easier.
