Grime gets between spokes and in lug nut holes, your wheel cleaner should be able to as well!
Wheel cleaners are among the most hazardous chemicals you’ll find in your detailing kit. Since wheels are typically coated with brake dust, manufacturers created very aggressive formulas that are marketed as “one-step” or “spray-on, rinse-off” wheel cleaners.
Brake dust contains an adhesive that is used to make brake pads, and this adhesive makes the tiny metal shavings stick to the wheels. Most wheel cleaners attempt to eat through the brake dust with harmful solvents like Ethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether. The problem is that these harsh solvents will slowly erode finishes on coated and painted wheels, resulting in a dull, pitted metal surface.
DP Gel Wheel Cleaner is a VOC compliant product containing no harsh solvents or hard-to-pronounce chemicals. It is a water-based cleaner that relies on environmentally friendly advanced surfactants to remove contaminants from the wheel without harming the coating. Overspray from this clear coat safe product is harmless. In fact, Gel Wheel Cleaner can even be used to remove bugs, tar, and sap from your motorcycle’s paint.
Though DP Gel Wheel Cleaner is designed with the safety of you and your motorcycle in mind, it is still a powerful wheel cleaner. The secret is the thick formula that clings to the wheel surface rather than running onto the ground. By sticking to the wheel, the surfactants have the opportunity to release the baked-on dirt and brake dust that coats your wheels.
The gel is packaged in a spray bottle to allow easy application on every surface of the wheel, even between spokes and in lug nut holes. Contamination gets into these places; your wheel cleaner should be able to as well! Gentle agitation is all it takes to loosen stubborn grime. Then rinse it away!
DP Gel Wheel Cleaner is safe on all types of wheels, including factory coated, painted, and anodized wheels. The cleaner also works just as well on tires.
Clean your motorcycle’s wheels; don’t torture them! DP Gel Wheel Cleaner will safely clean your wheels without affecting the shiny chrome finish.
Rinse wheels and tires to remove any loose dirt.
Spray entire wheel and tire surface with DP Gel Wheel Cleaner. Work on one tire at a time.
Agitate the wheel surface with an OXO Wheel Brush.
Rinse with a strong jet of water and move on to the next tire. We recommend towel-drying each wheel to prevent water spots. Use a Cobra Detailing Cloth that is designated just for this purpose.
To protect your wheels, coat them with DP Wheel Glaze. The polymer wax is specially formulated to prevent brake dust adhesion.
