    The video is good and represents what you were trying to do with it well.

    Not to be picky, but the video is over simplified, especially when titled "like a pro".
    The wide spoke rims with easy access to the barrels, and lightly dirty wheels and tires, just comes off as for show.
    Also, not all tires have accessible clearance between them and the wheel well.
    You did not note the rank smell of the iron remover, nor cover a situation where wheel acid would simply be needed.

    If the average driveway detailer, or rookie detailer, uses the same products and tools on a given set of wheels, tires, and wheel wells, they may have a lost cause on their hands.
    If it is a pro demonstration, it needs to cover all the bases.

    Again, the video is good, it just lacks necessary complete information needed for real world situations.

    That green brush is a tire brush, not a wheel & tire brush. The wheel brush like that has gray flagged tipped bristles.

    Also, why would you use a wheel cleaner instead of a dedicated tire cleaner to clean the tires?

    I cringed when the WW brush touched the paint....hence, me love the PW. Get's wheels so clean even without soap on the grime. Soap is needed for the final pass just to get the film off

    Thanks!

    I respect your comments. Of course, every detailer has their particular way of doing things, and pretty much everyone has an opinion on what the good steps are for everything. I just share my opinions and 20+ years as a detailing enthusiast.

    But your points are valid vanev. Thanks for watching!

    Nice video thanks. I must say that I love the mud dressing, I only use it on my own car and not customers.

    I think the video was great especially you took the time to show everyone who was or is interested.Its wheel cleaning ignore the comments,you demonstrated from start to finish how to clean a wheel properly.I admire and respect you have 20 years into this craft.But I can tell you from experience never mix 2 chemicals together it's bad for you and can potentially damage some wheel types.

    The Ammo Tire Mud dressing is my favorite! It has a more natural shine, lower gloss level, and lasts pretty long.

    Just to be clear... I didn't mix 2 chemicals. I use the wheel cleaner for the tires (notice how I only spray it on the tires), and used the iron remover on the rims. And even if both products were mixed, there are no worries in the case of the ones used here.
