I have the 2001 SE with PP. What's the best thing to clean the wheels with? Since the disc brakes are exposed, I don't want to use anything with any kind of acid in it.

I'm also noticing a bit of rust on the brakes, is this normal?

Whatever you use, keep in mind that the wheels are a painted surface...just like the rest of the car. Don't use anything on the wheels that you wouldn't use on the rest of the paintwork.

The harsh chemical cleaners will etch or completely destroy the wheel clearcoat, making them look dull or hazed. If you clean your wheels regularly, soap and water should be enough to do the trick. Another tip is to wax the wheels just like the rest of the car. This will make the road/brake grime easier to get off in the future.

one word my brother.......MOTHERS!!!!
(it's a name brand - the best!)
it comes in a red wax like container.
Will work on any metal (gold, silver, alloy, aluminum, -- metal table legs, rims, jewelry, etc.) and take off anything. It is the miracle metal cleaner!!!! You'll see all the black junk that the naked eye wouldn't even see on all metals coming off (even after you clean it ten times and it looks sparkling clean!) on the cloth your using!!!! GET SOME!!1
