I just bought a set of used Eagle Alloys that are flat black. What's the best "stuff" to get to clean em up?? Just need to brighten the black up a lil.

doesn't that statement contradict themselves? I bought flat black rims and what to brighten them up a lil! Not trying to be a jackass....I would just use soap and water.

Battery acid, rhinoceros puke, sand blaster, 80 grit sand paper, a dead hooker, all would probably work just fine :crazy:

i guess i should've been more specific. i have a set of three used flat black wheels. i had to buy one new one to complete the set. new one looks obviously as it should. the other three are a little faded from use. i posted here to see what the masses here that have flat black wheels are using to clean them. that's all. no i will not use wd-40 or paint, etc. just looking for some prior experience, not opinions from those with bored fingers. i'll simply try soap and water first. thanks.

any side by side pics (old vs new) that'd also be helpful in helping your plan of attack.

i'll probably try that. i cleaned em last night with soap n water and the three used ones are still faded looking. i'll post pics later.
one reason I always hesitate on getting black wheels, cuz most of them fade.
