I have the standard metal wheels on my "silver" 2002 Taurus SEL wagon.

hose and faucet. I don't have to go to the car wash all that often ... as
for the most part, my car's color doesn't show dirt much ... it's great !!
But ... my wheels are looking kinda grubby.

Can anyone suggest a product that either:
a) doesn't require a lot of rinsing ... or
b) would be a good one to use before going to my infrequent car washes ?

Would there be any harm in, while in the parking lot, just using a kitchen
product like Vim, along with a wet sponge/rag and maybe a brush for crevices
... and then rinsing off in the car wash?
