Alloy Cleaner?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i use Turtle wax wheel cleaner on my alloys whenever they are heavily soiled , but there is some dirt that is actually baked into the alloy and its not coming off. Its been there since ive had the car(1 month). Is there anything stronger i could use to help shift this, its only on one or 2 spokes on the 2 front alloys

Not sure if you can get Wonder Wheels near where you are?

That's like an acid baked product that literally eats through the muck, and the lacquer too if you don't take it off quick enough!

I also read somewhere that an even better option, is B&Q Brick Cleaner, but it's harsh so you would have to make sure that you apply for a few seconds, and then jetwash off to prevent it eating through anything it shouldn't!

Heavily soiled - The front wheels are usually more soiled, as this is where most of the vehicle braking effectiveness is. For badly soiled surfaces use an undiluted citrus-based APC (P21S Total Auto Wash) let it dwell for 5-10 minutes and then use a very Fine Grade synthetic brass wool, do not use heavy pressure, then use detailer’s clay followed by a gel-type wheel surface cleaner (P21S Wheel Cleaner) apply a polymer surface protection to ensure easier future cleaning (Klasse All-In-One or ZoopSeal) (http://www.autogeek.net)

Sequestered metal brake dust, if left for any length of time on the wheels causes galvanic corrosion, which etches the surface and eventually dulls the wheel’s appearance if not removed on a regular basis. To remove brake dust stains use a mildly abrasive cleaner (Iz™ einszett Metal Polish “Chrompflege”, P21S Multi-Surface Finish or Autosol)

Alternative product - Alloy Wheel Cleaner- a specialised product for cleaning alloy wheels, an aqueous blend of acids and emulsifiers Alloy Wheel Cleaner is a completely water-soluble product.
