Safe on all wheels, including aluminum and alloys!

SONAX Wheel Cleaner safely and effectively eliminates the most stubborn dirt such as brake dust, oil and rubber residue. Color-change foam lets you know it's working! SONAX Wheel Cleaner's acid-free, non-corrosive formula is safe on all types of painted, alloy, anodized, clear coated, chrome, aluminum and stainless steel wheels. Clean with confidence!

If you have custom, specialty, or otherwise expensive wheels, you have just found your wheel cleaner. SONAX Wheel Cleaner is pH neutral to protect your wheels' finish. This is in sharp contrast to many wheel cleaners, which contain harsh chemical solvents. SONAX Wheel Cleaner is tough on dirt, but gentle on your vehicle’s wheels.

Gentle does not mean weak! Instead of acidic cleaners, SONAX Wheel Cleaner is formulated with more sophisticated ingredients designed to attack what is on the wheel, not the wheel itself.

You can literally see SONAX Wheel Cleaner working! SONAX Wheel Cleaner sprays on fluorescent green and turns red as it penetrates dirt and grime. Red indicates that the brake dust, oily film, and dirt are being loosened and - with minimal effort - they'll rinse away, leaving clean, sparkling wheels.

Spray on SONAX Wheel Cleaner and allow it to dwell for several seconds as the cleaner turns red. If necessary, use a soft-bristled wheel brush to clean between spokes. The Speed Master Wheel Brush has soft nylon bristles that are gentle on all wheels, and it cleans deep between spokes. Rinse with clean water and towel dry to prevent water spots.

Easily Removed Brake Dust
I used a wheel/tire cleaner to get the caked on grime and then used the Sonax wheel cleaner. Thinking I had a clean wheel from the first cleaning it was amazing to see the change in color denoting brake dust left behind. I highly recommend the Sonax Wheel cleaner in conjunction with a wheel cleaner designed to get the tough stuff for a thoroughly cleaned wheel. For those that stated the Sonax didn't do well for them it is only made to get the brake dust/iron and not the tough stuff.
ProsCleans brake dust/iron well
ConsDoesn't get the tough stuff, but it's not made for that. If it could do both it would be the only wheel cleaner you would ever need.

SONAX Wheel Cleaner is the best
I've used in 40 years of car and tire/wheel cleaning. The chemical reaction is easy to see and the brake dust washes off effortlessly.

Sonax wheel cleaner
My wheels get extremely dusty and I saw several reviews for this product. I thought I'd give it a try. Applied product and waited for it to turn red. Used pressure washer at car wash and had satisfactory results. I was expecting to have to scrub the wheels with a brush, which I forgot to bring. After washing off with pressure washer, most of the brake dust was gone and wheels clean. What was left I was able to clean off with the towel I used to dry the wheels.
Proscolor change to let you know when to rinse able to use on all types of wheels
Consseemed to use half a bottle in one wash/cleaning

Acts on Brake dust, ignores the rest of the grime.
I was excited to use this product as it is supposedly good for any wheel. I tackled a tough job with my Benz RS8 Wheels (silver with chrome lip). The wheels themselves were not full of brake dust, but were coated in a couple of months worth of dust and road grime. I had to do two applications all around. The second application went along with a brush and I even had to scrub the wheels to try to remove some road tar. The product sprays green, it does so in a large volume, so I learned to catch the proper angles on the wheel as I applied it so as to not waste the product. After a few minutes some of it started to turn color, but most of it stayed green and rolled off the wheel. I could clearly tell that the product wasn't reacting with the dirt/oils/road tar.... It was only reacting to whatever small amount of metallic parts (brake dust) had accumulated in the spokes. Quite a disappointment... Only some good ol' elbow grease brought back the shine and removed the grime I thought Sonax would be able to breakdown in all surfaces of this wheel. I was able to do 8 applications with a little bit left on the bottle.
Merchant Response:Thanks for posting the review! SONAX Wheel Cleaner was formulated to remove brake dust - if your wheels have evidence of tar or adhesive, you will need a specialized cleaner to remove those substances. A great product for that is CarPro Tar X. All wheel cleaners require agitation, especially wheels that haven't been cleaned in months. Frequent wheel cleaning is easy wheel cleaning!
ProsCleans metallic particles (brake dust).
ConsLeaves dirt, and other road grime on the wheel, even after a second application with brushing and scrubbing. Expensive Bottle sprayer uses a lot of product

Wheel Cleaner/Dashboard Cleaner
Wheel Cleaner seems to clean well. I like the green to red/purple color change. I also like that it is made in Germany. Dirtier wheels will need a brush or mitt of some sort. Dashboard cleaner - like the description, its a true matte finish. Picks up dirt well.
ConsYou have to spray quite a bit of product with both items to get a thorough cleaning.

Sonax: wheel and dash cleaners
The wheel cleaner continues to amaze: green spray to reddish/purple drippings to bright clean wheels without hard scrubbing. The dash cleaner does produce a very matte finish, which I'm still adjusting to. One advantage is that the product doesn't need careful wiping off on shiny surfaces to avoid streaks. Very promising. Oh, and a very good value in this package.

Good Quality Product
Easily and quickly cleans wheels. I gave it 4 out of five stares because it does not remove heavy brake dust. For that I think I will have to use a power ball attachment or wet sand/compound/polish.
ProsCuts down on wheel cleaning time when compared to using a standard car wash soap. It turns from green to purple when ready, which is an interesting thing to watch.
ConsWill not remove heavy brake dust.

Fantastic - even cleaned up the neglected wheels
SONAX cane recommended by others in the Audi club, so I figured Id give it a try. While the sprayer seems to use a fair amount of product, the results are stunning considering all that's necessary is a quick cursory brush and then hose off the product. While this may seem pricey for wheel cleaner, I'm from the old school of inferior products and tons of elbow grease... there is NO comparison to SONAX. Worth every penny
Prosnew car - fantastic results old car (neglected wheels) - Amazing... while not perfect I cannot complain at the results.
ConsSeems to get used up fast
