rotor dust

How do you get rotor dust off a rim? I have tried everything and steel wool is the only thing that works. I think the rims are polished aluminum.

STOP !! Step away from the steel wool, especially if the wheels are polished aluminum. once it sets up for a while, it eats into the aluminum and then the wheels are ruined.

If yours arent pitted, then a buffing wheel and some polish might bring them out.

I'm sure you've been warned of this site and you still came. So what kind of GT do you drive? I'm guessing a 99-04 model since you have bullets.

Use, Simple Orange (I think that's what it's called). You can get it at walmart in the auto dept. It's in an Orange and Black bottle. Spray it on liberally over the entire wheel, let it sit for a min or so, then rinse. The rest should come off with a sponge and soap and water...

man there is this stuff that i see guys selling all over fort worth at gas stations that is come waterless cleaning system. i felt bad for the guy standing out in the heat so i bought a bottle and he demonstrated how well it works on wheels. he cleaned my front f250 wheels that havent been cleaned in at least 6 months and the brake dust cam right off! it also repels brake dust and dirt. this stuff is awesome. i use it on my mustang too. its made to wash the whole car without water but i dont trust it that much so i just use it on my wheels.

its called FW1 Racing Formula Fast Wax.

Yeah, guys in red shirts annoying you at the pump?

I was in my 96 Cavalier beater and I was like "dude, look at my car, do you think I care?"

But he did clean one of my hubcaps...pretty cool stuff...but eh.

I doubt that this is even close to being safe for use on wheels.

NO NO NO, it should be DFWLS1's, CUMMINS, C6 VETTES.net

Thank you to the ones that were trying to help. I took a fine steel wool then an aluminum polish and buffed it. Those who could only comment on the fact I have boobs,..yea I do! But a woman who is capable and intelligent and drives a damn fine piece of American machinery intimidates the hell out of you. So stay off the road and let the grown ups drive.

Looks like you've got this taken care of already. Sorry for the late response. Haven't had much time to be on the boards lately. Be careful with polished aluminum, most wheel cleaners won't work. I'd rather wash them 3 times with regular soap and water than to use something that may harm them. Once they get stained, you'll be kicking yourself in the butt for it.

<--- Not intimidated. Now post em up or GTFO newb. 6 posts and no welcome cleaveage is unacceptable. (and if "grown up" means yours hang down to the floor, by all means, post someone elses.)

Ok kid, sorry im not going to give into your e-peer pressure. Just because your mommy and daddy bought you your stang doesn't mean you can run with us folks who actually own ours. So try pulling your mouth off your friends d!ck (you know, the one you high-five when you think you post something cool on a forum) and go ask your daddy if you can get your title. And ill tell you something else. If you see my beauty on the street feel free to try to race my 350 torque monster will eat you alive. You think your cool cause you got a pony package?! Lol try again you need at least 375hp to talk shit little boy. So why don't you drool at the thoughts of a simple mod like saving your allowence for a hurst short throw, and ill stomp your small kid d!ck in the dirt with my 4.10 gears in my nice dana 44 rear (I got a detroit in there so try your luck)

Just because blowing dudes is your only contribution to society doesn't mean every body else is trying to suck a dick too. It must be hard having only one reason for people to like you.

Awesome reply little boy, you highfive you boyfriend with that amazing comback? Or was his d!ck poking you in the brain while you were busy knob gobling him? As for me and my ability to perform fellatio, it comes with my gender. You however are shuned do to your uncanny ability to suck the yogurt out of the tube steak.

And yes I own my car, I have paid it off and no I don't have homo stickers like you plastered all over it. (I can only assume you do)

And little boy, one more thing. If sex is all you know, maybe making a real stang isn't something you should think about.

Just because im a female don't underestimate my ability to build vehicles.

Again with the knob gobbling... and you say I have a one track mind.

Anyway - I never said anything about women not knowing about cars - stop being so defensive. I was merely alerting you to the time honored tradition on this site of newbs offering up bewbs to appease the masses.

Judging by your reluctance to post them, I'm guessing my original thought must be correct. ( That they are afwul, veiny, strecth marked sacs that drag along the ground behind you) If that's the case, feel free not to post them. I'm sure it would be tough to find a camera with that much panoramic capability.

As far as cars go - we can line em up any time you want. Sorry I don't have any stickers on mine - I know how that adds to your civic kill stories.

Tits or GTFO has been a motto on here way before me (I saw a post about the old days from '04 mentioning it - so before you were here too) I've merely adopted it...

Also, I don't really care if a little ribbing runs somebody off or not; nor do I care if you like the content of my posts.

Well I see Clevelandbaby aint running nothing but his head. Attention is all he wants cause he can't get it on the street. As for me being a Lady? Very much so, but any word that has more that 4 letters in it Cleveland can't understand.

I didn't realize that people were racing jeeps these days...

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!
