    WHATEVER YOU DO, do NOT spray WD-40 directly on to the wheel. There will be enough that sprays through the spokes and directly onto the brake rotor to cause problems stopping.

    Absolutely..thank you for alerting people to that. If you try this, definitely spray it onto the cloth and not onto the wheel.

    I like the idea. alloy wheel cleaner is expensive, and WD-40 by the gallon is a lot cheaper. but you should use a wheel brush, using a rag like that will dull the finish, but remember that WD-40 attracts dust, and I don't know if that thin caoting of WD-40 would last long...

    The thin coating lasts surprisingly long and is resilient to dirt AND dust believe it or not...thanks for viewing and commmenting. I like the wheel brush idea :)
