Gets burned in race pad material off your clear coated wheels!
March 19, 2014
I was skeptical. I always am. But I saw an online demo and thought it was worth a try. All I can say is WOW. There are multiple threads on Club Lexus where IS-F owners have complained about wheel pitting. Well, it's not pitting, it's iron from the OEM brake pads getting stuck in the clear coated factory BBS wheels. To throw salt in the wound, I took my car to the track (quite a few times) and ran Carbotech XP-12 pads. I went through three sets of them. Then I decided it was time to clean the wheels once and for all. Google "Wheel pitting on 08 ISF (with solution!)" to see the thread with my pictures of the results on page four. There are before pictures too. Absolutely amazing job. The Iron X made the wheels look as perfect as they were going to look after trying to clean them with other inferior products and mildly abrasive tools. Don't get me wrong, it took a few passes to get it completely free of iron, but in the end, the clear coat was once again clear. More amazing than anything, it only took about 20% of the bottle to do all four wheels to perfection.
Pros:Easy to use
You can see it work right in front of your eyes!
Cons:Do not use this indoors - smell can be strong
Do not use this in direct sunlight - it will dry and be more difficult to remove
