Repsol Orange Wheels

Hi, I'm sure this question may have been asked before but here goes...

Came to clean the Repsols rear wheel of chain wax/dirt, OMG! it was stick on like super glue, finally used spray polish what an ardious job and it took so long to clean not like the easy peasy black rims.

Someone suggested WD40? What do other people use and does it minimise scratching the paint (fine grit stuck within the wax) help

I always use the cheap aerosol degreaser from Supercheap Auto or Autobahn. Works a treat and a lot cheaper than WD40.

Re: Repsol Orange Wheels

Definitely WD-40 on a rag... you don't want any getting on your brake discs... then Honda spray polish. This leaves a nice protectant and shine on your wheels and it makes it a ton easier to clean next time!

"WD40" what else!
I use it also to clean the chain or splashes somewhere of chain grease

Re: Repsol Orange Wheels

Great for removing chain spray but it really should not be used to clean the actual chain as it will remove the leftover lubricant already in place.

If you don't want to use WD40, Gunk works equally as well. Nice and easy to wash of afterwards with a soapy sponge.

An old toothbrush is what you need, keeps those wheels pristine.
