Yesterday, I had my car detailed at Scott Sherman in Magnolia. I had the full $200 detail (but cost me $100 courtesy of a Living Social deal). When I got home, I noticed that my tire rims were still filthy, so I went back this morning to see if they could clean them up real quick before work. I was told by the detailer that the black gunk around my rims was brake dust ""that had eaten into my rims and would not come off."" I told him that the same brake dust comes off everytime I take my car in for servicing and cleaning at the Landrover dealership (every 6 months). He took the rag in his hand and rubbed some of the brake dust off and said ""Maybe Landrover uses something we don't have. Sorry.""
I've posted a picture of my rims post Scott Sherman's $200 detail job as my profile pic. After I left Scott Sherman this morning, I went straight to the Brown Bear drive thru car wash in Ballard. This same brake dust which had ""eaten into my rims"" came right off with a $12.95 Brown Bear drive thru car wash.
