    Unless your wheels are non-coated alloy, I don't think you'll have any issues using wheel acid if you do things cautiously. Any chance of posting a pic to see how bad the barrels are? Alot of times a strong APC with some aggitation will do the trick if you can access them. What brushes are you using? Phil sells the wheel Woolies and they work wonders.

    I agree with David. On coated wheels, I have yet to see a properly diluted wheel acid do damage IF YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. We're guys. Had to put that in.

    Agreed. I've been using Wheel Brightener for a couple years now and never yet have I had an issue.
