Speaking of Hard-To-Clean-Wheels, once upon a time I had a 1976 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. It came with the Honeycomb style wheels but I swapped those out for a set of Snowflake style wheels similar to the one illustrated below. They were a PITA to clean too but I didn't mind since they looked so good when they were all cleaned up.



Thanks for all the responses so far. Keep those ideas and comments coming!

I was going to but never got around to it. I just sold the car to a guy in New Zealand. Included in the sale were the original black Z51 wheels and center caps. I'm not sure which wheels he'll end up running on it.

I love the Z06 rims but don't want after market again - had them on my C6 and they pitted faster than factory over the years
