Griot's Garage Wheel Cleaning Clay completely cleans wheels to prevent pitting and restore a smooth shine to wheels. Detailing clay removes brake dust and stubborn grit from all wheel finishes. Griot's Garage Wheel Cleaning Clay is a key step in cleaning and protecting your wheels from corrosion.
Detailing clay works by removing contaminants that have become embedded in the wheel finish. Because these contaminants have often pierced the coating, regular cleaning and washing does not remove them. Only Griot's Garage Wheel Cleaning Clay grabs and removes wheel contaminants, like brake dust and industrial fallout, to leave the wheel surface slick and smooth. This totally clean surface is then ready for a wheel wax or sealant.
Why clay wheels? Brake dust is highly corrosive and capable of eating through clear coat, paint, and plating on wheels. Griot's Garage Wheel Cleaning Clay removes brake dust to prevent pitting and corrosion. Regular use of Griot's Garage Wheel Cleaning Clay will keep your wheels looking like new!
Griot's Garage Wheel Cleaning Clay works just like detailing clay for the paint. Use Griot's Garage Speed Shine Detailer as a clay lubricant. First clean each wheel. Then spray one wheel at a time with Speed Shine Detailer. Use a small piece of Griot's Garage Wheel Cleaning Clay to rub back and forth over the wet area until there is no drag. Wipe dry with a soft microfiber towel. Then use Griot's Garage Best of Show Wax or Paint Sealant. Refold the detailing clay bar often since you're likely to pull at lot of brake dust off the wheels. Note: Griot's Garage Wheel Cleaning Clay should only be used on the wheels! Once used, it should never touch the paint because it will transfer brake dust to the paint.
Griot's Garage Wheel Cleaning Clay is safe on all wheel finishes. The large 7 ounce (200 gram) clay bar will clean many wheels depending upon the amount of contamination on the surface. Once you use Griot's Garage Wheel Cleaning Clay, your wheels will look shinier, smoother, and cleaner than ever before!
As with all clay you need to use lubricant. If you fail to use lubricant on any part, have fun getting the clay off your wheels. As for removing containment's I either have very clean wheels or it doesn't pick up much.
Wheel Cleaning Clay
September 1, 2012
I found this clay to be excessively soft sticky and difficult to use especially inside a wheel. Required a large amount of QD to keep it moving across the paint. It was able to clean off some of the really stuck on tar and brake dust that would not clean up with several other wheel cleaners.
