    Hi,
    The rear alloys have got specs of brake dust stuck on them (more than the front ones). They are not baked on as I can scratch them off with my nails.

    However, I will prob end up wearing my nails off, if I keep scratching this stuff off.

    Is there anything that I can use to scrub this off with without scratching the wheels. Have tried soaking the wheels and using a stiff brush but doesnt work.

    thanks

    They are very fine dots and do not smear when scratching off like tar dots normally do

    Use clay bar. It will remove all contaminents from paintwork and wheels.
