when i bought my WG used in 04 the rear wheel looked a little "ruff" so i thought no biggy i'll clean it up.......lol then i tried to get my hand in there to wash it then i figured out how the rear wheel had gotten so ruff looking well over the past years i've tried my best to wash it with a rag/soap water and got it looking a hair better......but not "shinny" i had some old mirrors that had been sitting in my building for 3 years or so that got a white looking film on them that soap water would not touch so i tried chrome cleaner still they had a film on them .....hmmm i figured i had nothing to loose so i filled the sink with HOTT water and took an soapy S.O.S. pad to them very lightly and WOW they looked great! so i thought maybe i can get my rear wheel looking better by this method (my wheel is a chrome spoke wheel) so i went to work....it looks new! i can't believe it!if you fall victim to rear wheel neglect try the S.O.S. now i did not rubb very hard i just "polished untill shinny!"
