I'm trying to get rid of the sticky residue from the sticker on my LE37s. I thought I'd use goo-gone but wasn't sure if that would be too harsh for the wheels. Suggestions?

On the back of the wheels or the front logo stickers? For the ones on the back that have the size and offset just spry some wd40 on a rag and it will wipe right off.

Sorry. I meant the ones on the front. The previous owner took the "Volk Racing Wheels" stickers off and there are still some sticky residue on the spoke.

None, I also used it to remove the badges off the back of my Z and Equinox. The Z is black and didn't affect the clear/paint at all.

hi, i just bought a used CE28 Titanium Silver (matte silver) Monoblock.. when i touch them, its like there is no clear coat on these wheels!!

how can i clean them and wash them!? one of my friends recommended that i use a teeth brush with teeth gel and rub them softly!!!! i tried it and it worked!! allot of brake dust that was sticking on the wheels came of!! but i only did one wheel!! i dont wanna try it on four wheels and then later on i notice some side effects!! so i tried only one!!

soo any other advise on how to clean my monoblocks??

Those wheels are too scratched to save the anodizing.

I know it looks bad in the pictures..however thats only half the wheel. Take a look...the previous owner attempted to clean of whatever that buildup is on the other half and surprisingly it worked...you can also see some leftover polish in the crevice..Unfortunately I don't know what was used...so I'm going to take the advice in this thread and proceed from there.

I wasn't able to find the Bon Ami...Going to try Ace tomorrow to see if they carry it.

Sofa King, thanks for the recommendation. If I can't find Bon Ami I will try your stuff..
