First time post.
Are there matching rear rims that will allow for a wider tire? I'd like a little more back on my V.
Also, Any suggestions on how to clean the break dust off the inner part of the rim in those hard to reach places.

For brake dust, I do it the brute force way every couple weeks - pull the wheels and wipe from the inside
I've tried sprays and brushes but no easy way has worked very well

For brake dust I have a set of brushes that can reach all of the inside of the rim - I'm usually just too lazy to do the inner most ~20%. You can't really see it (that last 20%) unless you are specifially looking behind the rotor. For car shows that's mandatory, all others times they look great @ 80%.

I use a black cotton duster, the ones that are wrapped around a twisted wire. It allows me to clean the whole way in. It takes a lot of rinsing since there is so much dust created. It also requires a move of the car a few inches after the first cleaning to come back and get the part of the wheel that has the caliper.

Wheel acid works good, you can just spray it on, but its best to rub with a bristle brush or something.
