    My brakes have been hidden for 14 years or so and now I have new 18s and I can see them, is there any way to clean them up without having to replace them? I'm gonna purchase some brake cleaner tomorrow but I'm not sure if that will do any justice.
    I can get some pictures up tomorrow if need be. Thanks a lot
