Washing whip on dubs?

Hey guys I just put carbon 18 inch konig blatants on my whip and Im gonna post pictures soon. But anyway I was wonderin do you clean your car like normal with soap and water even though the rims expose the brakes and all? is it safe to get those wet? and also how do you clean the rims? with wipe or use spray bottle stuff? will it hurt the brakes? Thanks guys, tips appreciated

Are you talking about wheel cleaner???? Spray it on and wash it off, but don't try to stop hard after you do it, the cleaner takes a little while to come off the rotors. Just a brush and some soapy water works good and won't do anything to the brakes. I only use the cleaner in the bottle if the rims are really bad, otherwise, it's just car wash soap and water with a tooth brush.

dont' use any wheel cleaner on Konigs. It will eat away @ the coating. Just use soap and water.
