    Sonax

    Great Cleaner that removed Yellow Brake residue safely

    5/5 Mark Sloobda (MARYSVILLE, OH, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sonax (230200-755) Wheel Cleaner Full Effect - 16.9 fl. oz. (Automotive) I was a little skeptical of this product initially with its price. I had a yellow goo on my aluminum wheels from the brakes that was refusing to come off. I sprayed this on dry wheel, let it sit for 5 minutes till it turned blood red, used a toothbrush for about 2 minutes per wheel. power washed off and the results were awesome. I would buy again however I will by the $100 size because its a way better deal than buying the smaller bottle. I will post a pic too of before and after, May 21, 2014

    Good Stuff!

    5/5 canyncarvr - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sonax (230500) Wheel Cleaner Full Effect - 169.1 fl. oz. (Automotive) I don't often rate anything five stars. After having tried almost every wheel cleaner made over the years that didn't work and finally finding one that DOES, that is worth making note.This stuff isn't cheap, but it works. It is much less expensive per/measure in this large container.I use this on BMW lace-style wheels. BMW pads are notorious for making a dust mess. They also happen to WORK well, which is why I use them. The result is a nasty looking wheel after only a short time driving. I do use a brush for the brazillion crevices in these wheels but I could not GET them clean without Sonax. Good Stuff!, July 3, 2016

    Goldilocks wheel cleaner

    I've tried a few wheel cleaners in the past:- Meguiar's Hot Rims wheel cleaner- Griot's Garage Wheel Cleaner- Various concentrated car washes (Meguiar's Gold Class, Griot's Garage Car Wash, etc.)Sonax is by far the best balance in wheel cleaning.The Meguiar's cleans the "best", but it can also discolor your calipers, and has a short working time. It also smells reasonably noxious. Griot's is mild, very mild. It smells really really nice, but it does take a bit of elbow grease to get the tough brake dust off. Sonax tackles tough brake dust without any issues. It doesn't smell as nice as Griot's, but it doesn't smell noxious like the Meguiar's.I feel like Sonax is in the Goldilocks zone for wheel cleaners. It's not too harsh, but not too mild, smells fine, without being being too noxious, or too pleasant (if that's a bad thing!).Price-wise, it's a bit more than Griot's, and about 40% more than the Meguiar's... 5/5 masterhankshake (Wake Forest, NC, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
