Best product to clean my exhausts & rims

Hey guys,

i got 2 major components that need cleaning:

1. Rear exhausts

2. Rims 20" 4.6 - the fronts are getting these black dots that arent coming out and i dont want to scratch too hard to get them..also..part of it is turning a really light yellowish and only comes out with super hard scrubbing...any recommendations.


Thanks!

Pressure washer and Simple Green, undiluted, on COLD rims (not driven on for several hours) in the shade. After that, any remaining black spots should come off with a clay bar. Mother's and Zaino both sell those, but Mother's is easier to come by.

For the rims use a clay bar or Wheel Wax .

On my exhaust (black chrome) I first clean them with the same Meguiars Car Shampoo I use on the body then I rub them down with Nevr Dull wadding polish to make them shine like glass.
