I sprayed it on my totally dry, dirty wheels. I waited 5 minutes and then hosed the wheels off and it looked at though I had done absolutely nothing to the wheels. IMHO, distilled water is better at removing brake dust than this $hit.

I've come to the conclusion that in order to get clean wheels, you MUST hand wash them as there are no shortcuts when it comes to cleaning wheels.

I've been thinking of buying some straight degreaser and mix it myself with distilled water till it's not strong enough to take the paint off but good enough for the engine and rims

In my opinion p21s wheel cleaner is the best. Its not cheap but its worth it.

I have tried at least twenty different kinds of wheel cleaner. This is the best. But hey its German. The Germans take car care very seriously

I liked P21S as well until I tried Sonax. It's one of the few that will remove the sintered on bits off the inside of wheels and rinsed off fully.

I think you will like it, be prepared for an immediate change in color when the Sonax hits the dirty wheel! The chemicals in Sonax will turn the dirt a reddish color and will actually start visibly lifting the dirt from the wheel. Let it work for about five minutes and then rinse off, I will agitate those extremely dirty areas with a small brush if needed.

Finally, a wheel cleaner that actually cleans brake dust from wheels. Tried it today and was astonished how well it worked. It's so cool how it turns the brake dust purple and then just hoses off. Thanks for the heads up on this tremendous product. 5/5 stars!!!
