SONAX Wheel Cleaner Full Effect 16.9 oz.

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.

SONAX Wheel Cleaner Full Effect
So far I am very happy with moving to this Wheel Cleaner. I recently used this on a car that had not been detailed in 5 years. I sprayed it on the wheels and after a min it turned deep purple everywhere. Scrubbed the wheel using Wheel woolies and the wheel came out 90 % better. I figured that since the wheels had not been detailed in 5 years I would need to do a second round of cleaning, especially in the barrel of the wheel. So it did it again to make sure I got 99% of the break dust off and it worked as expected. The customer said to me he had not seens his wheels look this good since he purchased the car 5 years ago
ProsEasy to use PH Neutral Safe on all Wheels
ConsExpensive if you purchase small bottles but when you buy in bulk this problem goes away.

cleans brake dust
I have very dusty brake pads and Sonax does a great job cleaning the wheels. Spray it on and it gets clean with very little brushing.
