    Looking for a new wheel cleaner.

    Any suggestions for a good all around wheel cleaner? I used to use ARO. It's a great tire and wheel well and engine cleaner. But need something with a bit more bite on brake dust. I've considered sonax but that stuff is too damn expensive.

    Need something cost effective yet safe for all wheels.

    Re: Looking for a new wheel cleaner.

    Kris...for the past year I've been using OPC. I bought a gallon of it last year and I still have about 1/3 left. I like the fact that I can use it on practically anything....wheels, tires, interior, carpet, decon on the paint...etc. Its VERY convenient with a pump on it. 1 pump = 1 ounce. It works great for what you're looking for.

    I have APC + and ARO. APC isn't any different on rims than purple degreaser.

    Isn't Meg's wheel brightener only for certain rims?

    Meg wheel brightner is awesome stuff. Maybe more in dimensional than using an APC but I will always have some on hand.

    Don't use it on un-coated aluminum or pitted coated wheels. Anyone use TRIX?

    I personally use the otc eagle one all wheel and tire, Just coat the wheel in foam and rub the brake dust and hose off, It brings back most of the metallic look in wheels
