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.

New favorite wheel cleaner
Helps clean the wheels quickly, strong iron removal but causes no damage to wheel finish. No harsh smell either!

It's sonax so....
It's sonax... haven't tried any product from them that didn't love. A little pricey... but happy with the performance

Awesome Product
Awesome product that cuts through break dust like nothing. Personally I will be saving this for heavily soiled wheels exclusively as it is a bit pricey to use for regular maintenance washes but a great product nonetheless.
Pros1. Iron removing formula makes for quick work. 2. The solution has some thickness to it allowing it to clings to wheels for longer dwell time.
ConsBit pricey for maintenance washes.
