The Tremor rims really hang on to the brownish colored brake dust. I decided to give Meguiar’s hot rims aluminum wheel cleaner a try. I soaped up the rims sprayed the cleaner on and it really worked well. I still needed to wash the rim with a soapy terry cloth towel, but no brake dust residue after I was finished. The OEM brake pads really throw a lot of brake dust.
Just a little positive feedback on a product that works well and won’t damage the rim finish.

Thx, good to know..

I did not ceramic coat my wheels but often I wish is did. The satin finish on the wheels is tough to clean. I will replace them at some point just not sure when. I like the look of the factory wheels except they are too narrow for the truck and the center caps are flimsy.

Agreed...same here at some point I may order a set of Black Rhinos...or Methods. I have an ARE Z topper on order, so one step at a time for me. 👍🏻
