    Best way to clean vintage Tuff Wheels?

    Rebuilding a vintage BMX for a friend's son. It has a set of cool Yellow Skyway Tuff wheels but they are pretty dirty. Is there a tried and true way to clean them? What about brake pads. It is set up for cantilever brakes but I'm wondering if the mags need special pads???

    Thanks

    'We'll pass him before he gets to the main road" said Sholto.
    But Sholto had underestimated the speed of his man, who was safe in Taylor's public-house in Swords, drinking in a way that Mr Taylor did not like...

    Usually scrub+bleach for white mags, scrub+dye for coloured ones. See here for some steps: http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=51182
