    SON1C Synopsis 7 - Chemical Guys - Diablo Wheel Cleaner


    Always wanted to try this product, so eventually got around to picking it up, i diluted per instructions 1:3 , i did not have a spare foaming nozzle for this, so I used the bottle shown



    therefore agitation was required (even though most wheel cleaners should be agitated anyway)



    Overall its a good product and I will be using be conducting more trials, its great that it's concentrated, but then you might not have a quality foaming spare bottle, which can cause a dilemma, however as I've found with chemical guys every product of theirs is at least "good" I'd say diablo is a great wheel cleaner, but personally I prefer mothers wheel and tire cleaner for ease of use and versatility

    Picked some up just because of sale and because AG owed me a Daytona Jr Speed Brush from the sale the other month. Can't wait to try it out.

    I have been using their Sticky Wheel Cleaner if foams up with agitation. The trick is to have the wheel just slightly wet. Have 2 bottles of this on the way. This stuff mixed 5:1 is as good as most safe wheel cleaners strait. Best deal out there for wheel cleaners.

    No. I just hose down the wheel and wait a minute. Then I spray and agitate with a Montana Boars Hair Wheel Brush. The Sticky Wheel Cleaner foams up almost like shaving cream. That brush is awesome. Also, I spray it on a Daytona for the barrels and it foams up there.

    I use this and DP wheel cleaner. I like both. However, the CG is the better buy because its dilute able. I only get the DP when its on BOGO. Both foam up pretty well after you agitate them.

    I agree, I've used both
    however wouldnt you much rather have it foam out of the bottle with a foaming sprayer (if it works as planned) to have it dwell some/better
    can you link me on the brush, I'm not super satisfied with my wheel brush

    This is what I'm talking about













    The brush is from AG. It's just their small boars hair wheel brush.

    Tires and wheels stay pretty clean in general. Wheels are OptiCoated and tires are coated with Tuff Shine. As you can see, once you coat with Tuff Shine, your tires don't really get dirty. It makes them more like paint than rubber. No brown nastiness from dressings. Most everything on the tire just rinses off. So, you really just need to give the tires a rinse off and wipe with any type of soap. That's enough to clean them. I wash my Pathfinder once a week, so it really doesn't get too dirty.
