McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel

Grime gets between spokes and in lug nut holes, your wheel cleaner should be able to as well!

When you use McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel, you can be confident that it will safely and effectively clean all types of wheels. Its water-based, surface-friendly formula removes brake dust and oily road grime while maintaining the wheel finish by dissolving ferrous iron particles. McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel uncovers the shine of all types of wheels, including factory clear coated wheels, painted, polished, and plated wheels. It works so well that it changes color as it dissolves brake dust!

Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel is safe for all wheel finishes
Spray directly onto (cool) wheel
Thick gel formula clings to the surface
Thick, gel-like formula stays where you spray it!
Extra dirty wheels will bleed red as the wheel cleaner goes to work
Plus, it "bleeds" red as it removes embedded brake-dust particles
Wheel cleaners face tough challenges. 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.

McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel is a VOC compliant and safe on wheels. McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel 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, McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel can even be used to remove bugs, tar, and sap from your vehicle’s paint.

Though McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel is designed with the safety of you and your vehicle in mind, it is still a powerful wheel cleaner. The advanced surfactants release the baked-on dirt and brake dust that coat your wheels without affecting the wheels’ finish. Your wheels will be left cleaner and shinier than they ever have been, because Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel removes embedded brake dust particles.

McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner 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! The thick gel formula ensures this powerful cleaner stays exactly where you spray it.

McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel is safe on all types of wheels; including factory coated, painted, and anodized wheels. The cleaner also works just as well on tires. McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel penetrates the porous rubber to remove contaminants and leave white walls bright and clean. Use it on trim and molding to remove wax stains. There isn’t much this cleaner can’t do!

McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel is a great value for professional and do-it-yourself detailers. The surfactant cleaner will spare you the expense of refinishing or replacing your wheels due to corrosion caused by aggressive cleaners, and it works well on a variety of surfaces. Fast-acting surfactants in a powerful formula make McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel the effective, economical, and safe choice to achieve clean, shiny wheels.


Agitate using a Speed Master Wheel Brush
Use a Speed Master to clean behind the spokes
Use a Wheel Woolies brush for the face of the wheel
Use a Boar's Hair Brush to clean the face


Rinse the wheel well
  1. Spray wheel with water to remove any loose contamination.
  2. Spray entire surface with McKee's 37 Foaming Wheel Cleaner Gel.
  3. Agitate the tire with a tire brush. Use the softer Boar's Hair Wheel Brush on the delicate wheel surface to prevent scratches.
  4. Rinse wheel and tire with a strong jet of water. Do not allow the cleaner to dry on the wheel.
  5. For best results, towel dry the wheel to prevent water spots. Work on one wheel at a time until you’ve cleaned all four wheels.

Here’s a tip for wheels that feel gritty or bumpy: clay them! The wheel surface can accumulate embedded contaminants, just like the paint. Clay is a safe and easy way to pull these particles out of the wheel to restore a smooth shine. Use clay with a lubricant on coated, painted, chrome, and roughcast aluminum wheels.

Works as advertised!
I don’t know what is with today’s modern brake material, but it creates a mess. Using McKee 37 Foaming Wheel product makes light work of cleaning, especially is Lay if you use the specialized wheel brush. Comes out clean and looking like new.
ProsWorks easily and quickly

Great product, poor sprayer
Product works great. My main issue was sprayer become plugged/stopped working 1/2 way through bottle. As mentioned by others, it’s a small bottle (16 oz) and quite a bit is needed per application.

Washed recently powder coated wheels on the barn queen and the product stained the wheels. Tried on another car and while the finish of the wheels was not affected, the spray from the PW splashed some product on the clear coat. And it etched the clear coat.... Going in the trash.

Stained Powdercoat and (ahem) paint!
Used this for the first time on a barn queen that has recently (black) powder coated wheels. Sprayed it on the cool wheel (cold to touch and damn cool looking), let it do its thing, used my new brush to agitate the funk behind the spokes, then sprayed it off with a power washer. Much to my dismay, not only did this product stain my powder coated wheels, but it etched the h-e-doubletoothpicks out of the clear coat wherever it splashed after getting vigorously ejected by the pressure washer.
Cons-Stained powder coat -Etched clear coat on painted surface
