    Question Looking for advice on a wheel cleaner and it has to be safe.

    I need a wheel cleaner for my 1990 Chevy Silverado and it has 15" GM Rally wheels painted silver by my local body shop and they have chrome center caps and trim rings. I have a bottle of Black Magic Tinium wheel cleaner which says it safe for all wheels but I don't to find out the hard way their not telling the truth

    Try Windex. I have used that plenty of times before. It's not the best, as in, it may take several applications, but it works to break down the dirt and even dried bugs! I've used it on my grille and the front side of my side mirrors as well.

    The ring and center caps are stainless steel. The rims are painted, so anything that is safe to wash your truck with, will be safe to clean your rims with. How long has it been since they have been painted? it takes at least 6 weeks for your new paint to cure. You can not apply any wax or sealer until then, and you need to be gentle with them until the 6 week mark (just mild soap and warm water, and gentle rinse), That's the advice the body shop gave me after my repaint in October. By the way your truck looks grate.
