Alright, unique question... When i bought my camaro back in October of '02 when i cleaned the rims... the grease came off nice and easy on the front 2 rims.. now a days.. it takes me forever to get the grease off.. and they get black faster.. anyone know why or had this happen and some solutions?

This is just my opinion, but I figured I would offer it anyways. When I first bought my car, it was dirty as hell. So of course I bought the best cleaning stuff, and I gave her a first rate wash and wax. The wheels were shining. However, the wheels always seem to dirty up real quick now. I would venture to say that it is the cleaning materials that pick up the dirt faster. As far as them being harder to clean, I have not a damn clue why it now requires a scrub brush, some harsh cleaning fluid, and a lot of time to get them shining again. But I will go to whatever means necessary to make sure that my car looks better than the damn Ricer's next to me.
See ya on the road,

the first day i got my car, i was outside scrubbing my rims with some soap and a toothbrush! and it never worked all that good.
Now i use this stuff i bought at k-mart....spray it on, use the get brush and brush for 10 seconds, and they look brand new, but they get really dirty easily, so i use a liquid metal polish. it makes them to where they dont get all dirty in 2 days.
Cya later! oh yeah Mat, id suggest going to the dealership for the brakes...that dosnt sound right.
