Cleaning insides of '05 Jetta wheels

Replacing the old dry rotted tires on the Jetta that's been sitting the last 8 years. Good time to clean and detail the inside. This front one was pretty clean to begin with and took less than an hour. Applied a few rounds of Meguiars Iron Decon and a fine scotchbrite pad, toothbrush and chop sticks.

Looks great, but that seems like an expensive and time-consuming process.

Wheel acid is probably quicker and less expensive.

Looks great. I'm curious if the steel wool can be a good alternative to scotchbrite.
Very nice gotta say. I see alot of cars with clean rim faces, but a TON of dust/grime on the inside, and it takes away from the appearance.. They look like new. Good job!
