    Happy cleaning! They attract dirt from other states! States that you have not yet been too !!!!

    They are a bear to clean AND KEEP CLEAN. I would never ever have them on a daily - even a semi-daily driver. You need Westley's WW cleaner and a firm (stiff) brush, and if over age 35, a small stool to sit on !! The gold stripe is easy to do, (with Q-Tips) however the WWs will fight you like a rabid bear. You WILL be doing this:

    PS / My car is not black, nor navy. It is midnight purple. Think 1 gallon gloss black paint, into which you pour one quart of gloss bright purple, and stir like crazy.

    This is my third set of vogues, major pain in the ass to clean and its my everyday car. whitleys/crap ,vogue cleaner/crap, the one that works for me is black magic tire shine with a brush and towel. spray it on brush it then spray again and wipe it off with the towel. my experience the black magic is alot easier and faster than the other two. Thanks for the cutip info will be using that this weekend. also read the back of the bottle on the vogue official cleaner. saids something about damaging your rims with use, that turned me off it the first day and really didnt work well.

    I had the same wheels (wrapped in Vogues of course) but mine were aluminum. It was a pain in the ass to clean between all those spokes. I think I still have 2-3 of my center caps (extra ones) laying around somewhere.

    Oh yeah, just bought my set of Vogues for my Deville and they're on the way as of Friday!!!!!!!! I'll post pics once done.
    This is my advice to you ceramic brake pads, black magic tire shine to clean white and gold w/ rag and brush much easier than the whitleys and better results in my opinion also the whitleys voids your warrenty on the tires ive heard. worth the work your cars gonna look sweet oh yeah and cutips as per sandy

    I'm a Westley's White Wall Cleaner fan for sure. I've used it on my old Fleetwood (2-3 times a week) and it NEVER hurt the rims (though they were aluminum). Also, believe it or not, the WW cleaner actually works magic on WHITE SHOES!!

    When I got rid of the Fleetwood (stupid I know), I had an extra bottle of WW cleaner (Westley's). I was cleaning my shoes with a rag and remembered how I used to always stare at my Vogues after a cleaning and also remembered how white it got them. Said to myself, "what the f**k, if it removes road grime/dirt (name your favorite stain here) from the Vogues, why not a shoe!! Turns out I scrapped my old shoe cleaner and have been buying WW cleaner for my shoes ever since.

    Still waiting for my Vogues!! Hopefully the guy off e-bay will have them here by this weekend!

    Re: Show me your wheels

    THE best stuff for WW tires (I 4-get the name) was taken off the market, several years ago. It was baaad for you ! (Probably the why of why I am sick, now...) ~ since then I use the "W" you all mentioned, but it takes alot more effort, and at age 62, I now have to sit on a small "1-step) stool as I cannot bend over non stop for an hour ! Yes, I still use my Q-tips for the gold stripe on the vogues. They fit in that groove like the Q tips were custom made for Vogues !! I only do 'em like once a year, in May or so. After all, I have driven her 11,000 miles in 15 years ! 1993 & 11,000 miles.......733 miles on average per year, and THAT year is May thru September, ONLY, or 5 months @ year. So....like 147 miles per month, May to Sept. From Sept. 30th until April 30 she resides in a heated, dehumidified alarmed garage.

    If you hate cleaning your vogues, imagine cleaning these things on my Brougham
