Meguiars D140 Wheel Brightener

A professional grade wheel cleaner for factory coated wheels!

How does the body shop always get your wheels so clean? You’ve tried to replicate those results at home, but your wheel cleaner always falls short. We’ll let you in on a little secret; the professionals use Meguiar’s Wheel Brightener.

Meguiar’s Wheel Brightener is a super concentrated wheel cleaner for clear coated, factory painted, and chrome wheels. It easily removes brake dust, tar, dirt, and grime with little or no scrubbing. With a dilution ratio of up to 4:1, Wheel Brightener is an easy choice for cost-conscious detailers. You can get sixteen 32 ounce bottles of wheel cleaner out of one gallon of Wheel Brightener!

Meguiar’s Wheel Brightener is for professional use. Dilute as directed. Do not use on polished aluminum or anodized wheels. For severe accumulation of brake dust, use a wheel brush to agitate the wheel surface. Spray on and let sit for 30-45 seconds before rinsing. Wash one wheel at a time.

As Meguiar’s says, there’s a fine line between effective cleaners and dangerous chemicals. Meguiar’s Wheel Brightener is one wheel cleaner that is both safe and effective on factory coated wheels.

128 oz.

Cleaned well

Took all the muck muck off my rims after driving through construction site. I needed to use the brush along with this to get them clean but i do that most times. I think it is a good product for the price you pay.
Good value

Great Wheel Cleaner
October 19, 2016
I finally tried this. I have read this has acid in it, and was afraid of it. If there is acid in this, it didn't hurt my hands when I used it, but the wheels look brand new. Buy this, you will really like it.
Cleans very well.

Some real wheel cleaner
July 25, 2016
When you've got some heavy brake dust and yellow staining from neglect and/or winter use, nothing in the gentle "PH-balanced" category will work like this old-school stuff. Yes it's not ideal for your health and I wouldn't want to be using it day in & day out, but when used with some agitation with a wheel brush, the result is fantastic. And I don't have to be sparse with applying it because it's so economical when mixed 4:1. Highly recommend.
Gets the job done right and does the heavy lifting.
Toxicity compared to non-acid cleaners, wouldn't want to breathe it in regularly.

Not sure how much better it gets
February 29, 2016
With the results you get from this and the price point, not sure how you would choose to go with anything else. The rims come out sparkling like not even a speck of dirt has ever touched them. Any rim I've used this on looks brand new afterwards (unless the rim has never been cleaned in many years - then thats another story).

It works well enough. It still took lost of elbow grease to get these 1992 wheels clean enough to repaint.

Mediocre at best
April 25, 2014
This product does not work as advertised. I get better results with a Brillo pad and a bottle of .99 dishsoap.
It removed the light brakedust and left the wheel nice and shiny.
Did not remove the hard baked on brakedust even after being left on the wheel for 10 minutes.

Secret weapon
November 12, 2011
I've had a few people come to me asking what can be done to their wheels. They have tried other wheel cleaning products that havent been able to cut through the brake dust left on their wheels. The effort with light brushing and a minute of dwell time ends with the shine and cleanliness rivaling a new wheel.

Not a better wheel cleaner out there
November 9, 2011
If you have wheels that are BAD DIRTY, this is the stuff to use. None of the color changing products can touch some of the stuff this stuff will clean. Granted this cleaner is not safe for all wheels, but you aren't going to find one any better 9in cleaning ability) I don't think.

Good Stuff
September 15, 2011
Dilute to your strength requirements. Works great! Took off brake dust that $25 bottles couldn't do. I mix two bottles. One weak and one strong. Good deal for a gallon that can dilute to make many gallons.

Safe and Easy
June 1, 2011
I dilute this product approximately 4:1 (I don't measure it out perfectly every time) and it works fantastically. Spray on, let it sit for a couple tens of seconds, brush it, and rinse. Works great on wheels, tires, wheelwells, undercarriage areas, and chrome. For less than $20/gallon, you can't go wrong.

Cheap and Powerful
September 29, 2010
First off, DO NOT GET THIS ON YOUR HANDS, or feet, or legs. If you do, wash it off quickly. Other than that if you have factory wheels you will not find a product that removes brake dust quicker. Super awesome on chrome, painted factory wheels, and clear coated aluminum. Spray, agitate, blast off. Note, will stain your driveway a little if not rinsed off. Dilution rate makes this uber cheap when compared to other cleaners. And I use it everytime I clean my BBS wheels (2x a week) with no problems.

While this product may be effective, it contains Ammonium Bifluoride which can have serious long term effects on your health. Please read up on this chemical before you consider using, e.g. here: http://www.carwash.com/article.asp?IndexID=6631269 . There are so many safe and effective alternatives today.

I bought this after hearing professional details refer to it all the time as the absolute best occasional wheel cleaner to get wheels back to pristine condition. Boy are they right! This is a product I use once a twice a year. As I understand it's not good to use frequently as it can eat away your wheel finish. However, it also completely melts dirt/tar/and brake dust no matter how baked on it is...is really is amazing. Spray on, run a wheel brush over your rims and rinse. Perfectly clean. No scrubbing or anything needed.

Great Wheel Cleaner
April 16, 2006
I used this mixed 4:1. I did a great job on my coated aluminum wheels. Meguiars suggest not to be used on uncoated aluminum. Read the cautions and use it. You love the results.

a real time saver
March 18, 2006
this product really works fast and will leave the worst looking wheels appear new again. it is a true spray on and rinse off product. please read cautions as this is a serious product and should only be used on the wheels that are deemed safe by Meguiars. for the serious detailer this is a real time saver. considering you can mix this 4:1, a little goes a long way.
