What would you use for cleaning these rims? They are not coated but they are difficult to work on, especially the rear with the little rim and large rotors. I know I have a bunch of grime to clean off of them. Not really sure about polishing them.
You know, I have seen S100 products for years. A long long time ago I used it and didn't think it was all that great. I wonder if anything has changed?
I have used the other Meguiar's rim cleaner in the purple bottle. Maybe I can try the blue bottle. I have also seen the Flitz Preclean that Mike Phillips did on some rims that seemed like it worked fairly well.
It has served me well. I usually have 10-15 motorcycles at any given time and use S100 when any of them need to be washed. My bikes stay really clean so washing is a rarity though.
S100 is safe on all surfaces and water soluble so of course rinses away easily. They also make a wheel cleaner that is specific to the task so you may want to look into that. It is in the link I provided.
