Same setup here. I prefer the Daytona Speedmaster for cleaning inside the rims though. It does the job like a champ.

I do pretty much the same thing. Adams or Green, blow dry off with leaf blower, follow up with Adams detail. It takes longer to clean the wheels then wash and almost wax the car lol. I had black wheels on my SS and wish I had the black on the ZL1 so it wouldnt show up so bad just driving across town! I did start using the Eagle 1 Keep Clean and have had great results.

One brush I highly recommend - at Ace hardware - under three dollars -

It's actually a toilet brush -but made of fuzzy yarn - will not scratch and is great to get 'behind' the wheel for all that dust that gets in the 'barrel' of the wheel.......

I love the low tech low budget solutions. But I bet if were to print Camaro on it we could get 50 bucks a copy for it.

Thanks for that, but all I asked was how do you clean your steering wheel?

I dont think I'd use it on my wheels but my toilet's have never been treated that gently

I haven't tried that as my lsp on the wheels. I am in love with Car pro's Hydro2. It is by far the easiest spray sealant I have used. I also use it on my wheel wells and it truly helps repel dirt and makes cleaning them 10 times easier.

I must give credit where credit is due. Camarodreams on the detailing section of camaro5 told me to try it diluted and I did and will never use it full strength again. I buy this by the gallon so it's like getting 2 for 1.

Great write up! I would love to put this much attention to wheel details, but seeing how I bought a used car I think it's too late to achieve that kind of perfection. I'll bookmark this anyway, beautiful car!
