i wanted to know how all u guys do it, i mean i will sit there and literally wash the shit out of the spokes by pressing a soap and watter filled sponge up against the spokes to get to the hub and that shit will still look shitty after I'm done cleaning em. Then i see sum others peoples hubs and they look fukin brand new while my shit looks like shit. Is there a trick that u guys do to get this shit clean or is it just me, pleas ehelp me out cuz i see it starting to rust a lil bit :( thankx for all the input

what about for aluminum wire hubcaps?

whats the best spray to use then pressure wash

i would say...
just remove the hubs then put them in a hot soap bath and hand clean them in the house with soap and a scrub brush.

i use simple green

it doubles as a water softener, so it doesnt leave water marks as bad either
