    Wheel gel.. Help me understand

    Wolfgang, Pinnacle and DP all sell wheel gel in the same bottle under their perspective brand names. All at different prices. What are the differences between the wheel gels from each of the brands ?

    I can't really answer that question, but I can add that Pinnacle works awesome.

    I've tried both the Pinnacle and DP and prefer the DP. I just helped my father with an'01 Yukon with aluminum wheels and we cleaned one wheel with DP and the other Pinnacle (both sides alternating axles e.g. Passenger Front - DP, Passenger Rear - Pinn, Driver Front - Pinn, Driver Rear - DP) and we noticed some subtle differences. The DP seemed to leave more of a sheen to the wheel and also seemed to clean pitted areas better. The DP wheels also looked and felt smooth to the touch. We ended up doing the all four wheels with DP Gel Cleaner & following up with Wheel Glaze.

    WG,DP,Pinnicle, are there own individual brand. There for, each offers its own product. Will you get the same results with all? Maybe, but probably not. Each were created from different formulas.

    I just bought the DP Gel Cleaner and Wheel Glaze. I use PInnacle, Wolfgfang and Menzerna and was just wondering what the differences were in the other brands.. So far I have spent a ton on these products from AG and all are terrific.

    with clear coated wheels, i've tried dp 4-1, dp wheel cleaning gel and car wash soap. to me, all three work just fine--however i never let the wheels get really bad. the real question is how to prevent brake dust build up. the dp wheel glaze is fine but so is dg aquawax as a quick sealant--and much easier to apply. i bet even dg 105 works too. the trick is to apply something that gives wheels a slick surface so the brake dust can't stick as well.

    I've only used WG tire gel and loved it, lasted longer then PB BnB and held up well in rain.

    After trying all three brands, all their wheel cleaners and tire gels, I will tell that you can't go wrong with either one. Best bang for the buck would be DP, very nice smelling tire gel, and great wheel cleaner.

    DP wheel gel works great and is my go-to for light/moderate cleaning. If however I need something more powerful for neglected wheels with heavy brake dust, Meg's Wheel Brightener works awesome mixed 4-1!
