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.

I use this cleaner cut 50/50 with water and a Daytona Speedmaster, and it works excellent.

Sonax Wheel Cleaner Full Effect
Really good wheel cleaner. I have a very open wheel design on powder coated factory wheels (Cadillac CTS-V). This product is easy to spray behind the spokes and on the front of the wheel as well. Let it dwell for a few minutes until it turns red, then brush with a quality wheel brush like the SpeedMaster. Rinse with direct stream and you will be amazed at how clean your wheels are.
ProsPH neutral - wont harm wheels
ConsPrice - bottle is rather small for the sale price of $15.99.

Worth the price for effectively "eating" brake dust
Though it takes about 5 minutes to work, the wait is worth it. I would prefer a thicker formula to eliminate runs to the 6-o'clock position. When used with a wheel brush, clean wheels are soon revealed.

Best wheel cleaner ever!!!
This is a wheel cleaner everone must have. It makes cleaning the rims so easy. I wash my own car and in the winter I take my Audi to get hand washed. I always bring this cleaner and everyone always ask..... What is that? If you live to keep your rims clean please do not miss out buying this item. Best in the company!!!!
ProsEasy to clean. Sprays evenly You can see it working
Cons.......... No complaints

Best wheel cleaner
Over 50 years of car detailing and I have never seen such a powerful wheel cleaner. After the color changes, I wash it off and then dry with a MF cloth.
Prosworks as described the first time
ConsStrong odor

Good... Others are better.
Many of the elite detailers swear by this stuff... however, for me, it was just ok. Sonax has a strong chemical smell (strong) and just didn't work out for me. Fr the price, I suggest you look elsewhere.

Excellent Spray on/off Cleaner
Used this on a BMW X3 with wheels that had not been washed in weeks. Spray on, wait about 5 minutes until the color change and power wash/spray off. This is very powerful cleaner for very dirty wheels. I will use this periodically if I slip on wheel cleaning for a few weeks.
ProsVery powerful for spray on/off applications
ConsA bit pricey to use all the time on wheels that aren't absolutely filthy

OMG!
I cannot believe how well Sonax works! It's like a miracle. Sprayed it on, and the solution turned a black cherry color. Took a power hose to it and all the dirt, brake dust, etc. just flew off. There was just a bit left in the corners of the spokes which wiped off with a cloth. Awesome product, guys!!

I mean I guess...
I find this cleaner to be pretty good- but there are a lot of other high quality products on the market now as well. Initially I was taken by the color changing, but BMW brake dust still requires agitation with this stuff, and it doesn't seem to get off the more oily side of road grease all that well. On balance I prefer P21S wheel gel cleaner- it doesn't remove as much dust with just the rinse as this does- but both need to be agitated. When the P21S is agitated- it is easier to remove the remaining dust than with the Sonax. Also it's annoying to remove if you accidentally let it dry. Overall it's a good, but overhyped product.

Great cleaner
A great wheel cleaner. Brake dust comes right off with zero elbow grease. Only downside is the amount. You get only about 4-5 applications (for all four wheels) out of one bottle. So it makes it pretty expensive.

Works wonderfully
This stuff works wonders. I have raw aluminum lips and clear coated custom wheels, and they don't stain/damage anything at all. Just leaves a beautifully clean finish. I just wish it didn't smell like someone getting a perm. The odor is awful.

Great Product!
I'm an old timer (61?) and have used 'em all. Store bought stuff, which is barely ok; supply houses/etc.; caustic stuff/etc. NOTHING I have EVER used works as good as my recent arrival of Sonax Full Effect. I even tried it on an old Mazda van I use for utility. I clean those rims maybe 1-2 times year. When I do, it only gets the fairly loose stuff - using a brush! Not the stubborn ground in brake dust. Sonax cleaned the gritty/grimey brake dust infused wheels perfectly. I was really amazed! I will be ordering more soon!

Best Wheel Cleaner
This is the very best wheel cleaner out there in my opinion. It is safe to use on everything yet it has proven to be the most effective. It is a must have for those BMW rims that are filled with break dust.
