What do you use, and how do you keep your wheels clean??
Especially y'all with the white ones.
I have the gold wheels and I can tell it is going to take extra work to keep them clean
Just looking for suggestions.

I put the bike up on a rear stand when I wash it...after soap and water I spray "goo- gone" on the rim and while holding the rag on the rim I rotate the wheel...
Makes washing the wheels easy and for the most part quick.

Is your 40th aniv. the corona alstare replica?
Do you have any pics?

Be careful that goo-gone is a petroleum distillate so it can make your tire slick. Be sure to hose it off. It's also worth mentioning don't spray it on your chain since it will remove the lube.

That Orange Clean stuff works well on grease and gunk.

The best stuff I have found to date is called Greased Lightning and I have only been able to find it in Va. It is great you spray it on rahter heavily and wash it off with a hose then rub it dry with a cloth and it looks just like new. And yes my wheels are white and it causes no discoleration or slipperyness on the tires.

The last time I got my tires changed the guys who changed them soaked my chain in some nasty green slime and it went all over my wheels, it was even dripping from my kickstand... I was pissed, and I still haven't gotten it all off. That natural stuff doesn't work... time to bring out the industial degreaser!
