Whoops! The link the 327Cayman posted is the one I was thinking of. Sorry!

Let us know how it turns out.

I have a few large spots like this on the barrel of my rear wheels, but after 2 years, I'm not bothering. I can't see them anyway. :)

Just wondering if you got that brown stuff off your inner wheels and what you used if you did... I think we all have that problem. Seems to be the spot that was hidding behind the calliper making it hard to get clean before putting the car away for storage... then the grime just sits there for months and becomes hard to get off with normal washing... Let us know!

Thanks

Most likely cosmoline overspray that then picked up dirt and brake dust, very common. I've used simple green and a scrub brush to get it off my wheels in the past, and once off then you can apply something like wheel wax. Check the articles section to see my cleaning work in the past.
