That stuff does look good, But if you have chrome wheels that require polishing you will have to polish the hell out of them if you get the stiff on it!! I learned the hard way

Tom, you can't use it!!!! U have polished wheels and it will eat up and pit our type wheels. Only reason he can use it is because his are clearcoated. I used to use it on all my tires until I got my current wheels. IIRC, Wesley's is pretty much a diluted hydochloric acid (dont quote me on that).

Plain and simple anyone with steel wheels (non chrome) or clearcoated wheels CAN use it though

I did, and I immediatly notice white specs on my wheels and "milking" of the polished surface. I researched it and ALOT of people get that effect, no matter if they have Pacers, Mickey Thompsons, etc... wierd. Either way, I just use Simple Green now, smells sooo good and cleans really well. (not quite as stong as westley's though, but gets the job done.

I hear ya, I had it happen to me on my MT's. You can also use soapy SOS pads for the white letters...BUT you need alot of elbow grease!
