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.

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.

Works Great!
Hate the smell, but, Oh Man! The difference is amazing! I didn't even have to scrub any of the brake dust off of the wheels.
ProsRequires very little elbow grease
ConsSmell, dangerous supposedly.

I used the McKee's 37 Wheel Cleaner Foaming Gel to clean the Sport Edition SE-16 wheels on my Saab Viggen this past weekend. I've used a number of other cleaners over the years on these and other wheels, and all left a lot to be desired. However, the McKee's product did an OUTSTANDING job! The brake dust and grime seemed to just melt away. I sprayed it on, waited a few minutes, then worked it in with a soft-bristle brush and rinsed with cold water. My wheels have never been so bright!! Excellent stuff, highly recommended.
ProsClean bright wheels!!
ConsThe included spray/trigger attachment would not spray this product. I eventually had to pour the product onto the brush and work it into the wheel manually.

Works great, but oh that smell...
I've used wheel cleaner products from several different sources, and this works just as well as any of them. Safe on all finishes and does exactly what it says. But the smell of this stuff would make the undead want to be dead. It's bad.
Prosdoes what it should, product works well
Consnasty, chemical smell

Good wheel cleaner
The DP wheel cleaner is a good wheel cleaner and isnt to harsh on rims. It foams well when brushed and cleans the rubber on tires nicly. Worked just as you would expect it to.

Great on Rims/Tires/Calipers
This is a very good cleaner. I use it on my painted calipers because it doesn't eat through the paint like brake cleaner does. Just spray it on the caliper and agitate with a soft bristle brush then jet spray with water and they will stay clean like the first time painted.

Really good product!
Great wheel cleaner, I had problems getting some really bad brake dust off a wheel, with this stuff and a tiny bit of scrubbing everything came right off. It's not really gel, but it works awesome! Doesn't smell caustic or horrid like some wheel cleaners. Overall a great product!!!

Pretty good
This cleaner works well on both wheel and tires. But be aware this is not actually a gel like it says it is. The cleaner is clearly a liquid and I did not notice that it stayed on the wheels and tires any longer than other cleaners. Despite this, it is overall a recommended and safe cleaner for every type of wheel

Works wonders
I've had this wheel cleaner for about a year now, it's the only one in my arsenal. Just use it before applying the DP wheel glaze and you'll be asking yourself where was these products when i needed them years ago ( I know i do)?

Great product!
I used this stuff for the first time last night and I love it. I sprayed it on some wheels that had brake dust caked on and it worked great. I let it sit for less than a minute then agitaged it a little with a soft wheel brush and it rinsed clean. Worked great on the tires too. Right after I sprayed it on the tires I could see all the brown dirt and gunk just being pulled off the tire. The only warning I will give is this is not actually a gel. It is in liquid form but in my opinion that does not hinder the perfomance at all. Also I want to recommend getting the 1 gallon bottle because I ended up using about a quater of the 32oz bottle on just four wheels.

Love this Stuff
This is very gentle yet effective. I trust it and use it on all types of wheels with no worries.

Gel ingenius
I love the gel cleaning idea. What a great idea a wheel cleaner that stays on and cleans my wheel as opposed to running off and cleaning my driveway. Great cleaner on top of all that.

I trust my chrome wheels with nothing else but DP gel wheel cleaner. It does an oustanding job on both my wheels and tires, so I can keep the harsh chemicals as far away from my wheel finish as possible. A++

EXCELLENT Wheel Cleaner!
I used this with EXCELLENT results. I spray wheel with water, spray cleaner onto wheel, agitate with a microfiber towel, rinse, and I'm done. My friend was impressed with this when I used it on his wheels. Will definitely keep buying again and again.

Awesome Cleaner
This has to be the best wheel cleaner I have ever used. Goes on nicely without the chemical smell like other wheel cleaners. With a little agitation, this cleans wheels up nicely. Bonus is this works awesome on the tires too. Highly recommended!!

Awesome product!
I love this cleaner!! You spray it on, agitate with a soft bristled brush, rinse and you're done! The wheels come out super clean. I used a white micro fiber towel to dry my wheels after using this product and there was not a single smudge on it! Thanks AG for another outstanding product. :)
