    cheap Non Acidic pH Balanced wheel cleaner

    Am looking to buy some sort of a pH Balanced/neutral wheel cleaner, it must be non acidic formular and safe on all wheels just like the Sonax (which i love) but looking to buy in gallon to use with a pump sprayer, i like the 3d BDX but not exactly cheap either comparing to other wheel cleaners, 128 oz @ 80$ where i live, i know that might not sound like too much for many people around here, but i had terrible experience with Meg. Acidic based wheel cleaner (the cheap 5$ purple bottle) crap product to say the least, but still paying 15$ for just 2-3 car washes is not cheap either (per 17oz bottle)

    so any suggestions to buy in quantity for cheap to use with pump sprayer ?

    thanks,

    I’ve been using Meguiar’s D143 non-acid wheel and tire at 2:1 dilution for 3 years with good results.

    Where exactly do you live? Meguiars is available worldwide and their d143 non acid wheel and tire cleaner is pretty good. P&S brake buster is also very good.

    looks really interesting but cant find it any gallon size on AG, i need it shipped to canada !

    also i noticed this needs agitation and doesn't change color, any alternatives quite similar to the sonax wheel cleaner or 3D BDX just cheaper ??

    thanks,

    Brake buster is great for maintenance washes. I use it in a foamer on my wheels and tires. It doesn’t change color but it works well

    Is this for personal use or a business?

    I would like to 3rd or 4th this, which ever number I am in line. I just tried P&S on some Civic wheels that had black inserts last week and I wasnt very impressed, it left the black still kinda dull and the D143 never did that. Seemed like the P&S didnt clean them well. I used my same process as I have always done with 143. Obviously I will have to give it another couple chances to use up the 16oz bottle. But so far 0-1.

    thanks,
    If you're looking for something that doesn't need agitation then acidic is the way to go, imho.


    Here is the link for the gallon size of P&S Brake Buster (looks like it is out of stock at the moment):
    P&S Brake Buster Non-Acid Wheel Cleaner 128 oz.


    Another color changing wheel cleaner available through autogeek is McKee's 37 foaming wheel cleaner gel:
