What is the best way to clean a set of aluminum rims? I dont want to polish them just clean em up and leave them natural looking.

i'm not sure about the best way, but general cleaning do NOT use the product "Simple Green" on any aluminum parts because chemicals in the cleaner react with aluminum and will ruin the rims!

When I owned my 87 Mustang GT , I used Eagle one. It worked well for me. These were the stock turbine looking rims.

If they are coated, be carefull. the right cleaner for uncoated (an acid) will destroy a coated wheel.
