    Cleaner worked great. Cleaned my rims for for the first time

    5/5 Joey - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Meguiar's G9524 Hot Rims Wheel Cleaner - 24 oz. (Automotive) Cleaner worked great. Cleaned my rims for for the first time. Followed the instructions printed on the back of the bottle. My rims were pretty dirty so I did clean each one twice with a brush. Pictures before and after attached to give you an idea. They look great. Almost new. Too lazy to keep scrubbing every little bit but I'm satisfied., October 7, 2015

    I want to start off by saying this is the best product on the market for the price you pay (personally i like the aeresol because there is little to no over spray and it is easier to use) . I detail cars off to the side because that is what i love to do. For those who dont know what that is I buff, wax, interior dressing, carpet cleaning, and tire dressing. For most people this product will only last about a week or so depending upon the weather. Now if you want your tires to shine for a solid month here is how you do it... you are going to need to get Turtle Wax T463 Ice Wheel and Tire Cleaner - 22 Ounce it is the best brake dust/ road grime remover out there (your tires will already be noticeably cleaner after this stage) this is like the primer, you will want to apply this before you wash your car. when you apply this agitate it with a brush and just rinse it off you'll notice that lots of grime is coming off of the tires/rims. after you finish washing your vehicle make sure that... 5/5 cutrang - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Do not use on PVD chrome wheels. - not typical for Meguair

    1/5 Retired EE (me) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Meguiar's G9524 Hot Rims Wheel Cleaner - 24 oz. (Automotive) Not for PVD wheels (95% of chrome wheels are PVD), found this out after buying. Product description did not mention warning. Usually Meguiar's is great - but this is an exception. There is a Hot Rims Guide on the bottle that is totally confusing. "Aggressive" / "strongest means warning in use. PVD is the typical "chrome" wheel, Google PVD.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    5/5 Steve Styer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hubcaps for Chevrolet Malibu, 08-12 Chrome Auto Hub Covers, OEM Genuine Factory Aftermarket Replacement, Snap On - Fits 17" Inch 5 Lug Nut Alloy Aluminum Wheel Rim I ordered these for my 2009 Saturn Aura because the original silver (painted) ones were always chipping and peeling. I had to repaint them every year since the car was new. I figured that for the price, these (Osgord Chrome)were worth a try. I got them yesterday and couldn't believe how nice they are. These snap right on (the originals "bolted" on) in seconds. They look great and will never require painting. Too often; internet purchases turn out to be disappointing. These are certainly NO disappointment. They look great! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 16, 2015
