HELP: Anyone knows how to clean the brake dust / tar dots from brushed alumnium wheel



Anyone knows how to clean the brake dust / tar dots from brushed alumnium wheel??
There are many dust / tar dots hiding under the rivets of my wheels, have tried to use cleaners but they just doesn't do the job...
I know polish can do it, but any easier way to get it off my wheels ?

Start by washing your wheels with a good wheel cleaner like P21S Auto Wash. Then go over the wheel with some clay (and a lubrication spray obviously) to get the tough spots out. Make sure your wheels and brakes are not hot before you try cleaning them.
