    Works great on painted wheels. chromed or chrome-clad, not as well

    Although, to be fair, most older chrome clad wheel's finish is deteriorating, & it's difficult to tell whether it's the winter road chemical-degraded finish, or grime until one attempts to clean them with this or any other product. Worked very well on silver painted BMW X5 wheels, less well on factory chrome-plated Town Car wheels. Despite the ph balance, this cleaner wasn't any more effective at budging the thick, brown, baked-on brake dust on the inside rims of the town car's plated or other car's clear coated or bare aluminum inner, where I was trying to encourage my tire shop to put the wheel weights, rather than hammering them on to the outside rim, where they're unsightly & trap corrosive dirt/winter chemicals, causing cosmetic damage. Again, they were great on the painted wheels, in & out. The gel formula also helps the cleaner cling to the wheel & stay where it's needed, so it can do its job.

    Seems to Work Well

    4/5 Kokomo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Meguiar's G14324 Hot Rims Aluminum Wheel Cleaner - 24 oz. (Automotive) I like this stuff. Used on my motorhomes polished aluminum wheels. I spray the wheels to remove loose grime, then spray with Cleaner. I wipe with microfiber towel, then rince with cool water and wipe dry. While I have only my own eyeball test and no science behind my opinion, I think the Cleaner removes some light oxidation on the aluminum, leaving a shiny reflective wheel.

    Really impressive performance on RAV4 stock wheels

    If you follow the directions on the bottle: wet the wheels, spray the wheels and tires, and let the product stay on the sprayed surfaces no longer than 30 seconds you will get the desired results. If you leave the product on too long, it is caustic enough to eat through the clearcoat on some wheels.That being said, I'm so happy with how this product worked on my 2014 Toyota Rav4's stock wheels. I sprayed water on my wheels one at a time, then sprayed on the product and quickly scrubbed with a wheel brush on the outside and the inside rim. Making sure to do one at a time very quickly, with extra care to rinse off the product thoroughly before moving on to the next wheel. The results were immediately evident. The product removed the grime, brake dust, and grease from both my wheels and tires within seconds of spraying it on. Very little scrubbing was needed to achieve excellent results. I finished by wiping the wheels with a microfiber cloth, and shook my head at how... 5/5 Andrea Polk (Pacific Northwest - USA) - See all my reviews, March 10, 2017

    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 Hot Rims All 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

    Ridiculous!

    5/5 O B (LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Meguiar's Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner. 24 oz. (Automotive) Ridiculous price for a product that works this well. I sprayed it on my daughter's VW rims & I watched the foam melt the dirt right off. I tried it on my 4Runner rims & after brushing the grime around the lugs a little, I got a shine I've only seen when the truck was new. This is serious stuff so, the next time I use it, I'll wear a disposable mask. The whiff I got after spraying the first wheel probably took a year off of my life! Risk the five bucks.

This review is from: Foam Baster Foam Cannon Car Wash for Pressure Washer Garden Lawn Foam Gun Car Wash 1L with 1/4" Quick Adapter Always wanted to use a foam cannon to help wash my car. This one works pretty good. My pressure washer already had a quick disconnect adapter on it, some don't (its not included). Foams up good, but I try soap that works better with foam blasters., May 16, 2017

    Performs on par with other foam cannons I have but at a much better sales price

    I already own another foam cannon but thought I would get another as a backup for when washing two cars so I wouldn’t need to stop and refill the bottle. The main difference between this model and others I have purchased is that the bottle isn’t translucent however you can still easily see the contents and know how many ounces you have put into it. There are so many claims that some bottles are better than others, some brands have “air injection technology” and some break after the first use. From my own experience I will say all the bottles I have used seem to perform about the same. There are key factors though that will tell you what to expect. The main thing to look for are that the two blades at the outlet are both flat and meet perfect.The important factors to consider:1. Soap Soap Soap.

    great for washing your car or truck

    5/5 Suzanne W. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Foam Baster Foam Cannon Car Wash for Pressure Washer Garden Lawn Foam Gun Car Wash 1L with 1/4" Quick Adapter This wash gun is great for washing your car or truck. When you're using this, you don't even have to use a wash mitt unless you've got some really baked on road grime. It's also great for washing windows. I haven't used it in my garden yet - I've been too afraid of blasting the plants too hard. It is adjustable, so I'm probably just being too conservative there. But I got it primarily for washing our vehicles, and it does a fantastic job for that. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 28, 2017

(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

(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

    and after a couple cleanings the wheels looked good as new

    5/5 Josh - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mothers 05824 Pro-Strength Chrome Wheel Cleaner - 24 oz. (Misc.) I had a set of summer wheels that came with my car when I bought it that were chrome, and they were a pain to try and clean. The previous owner never cleaned them, and the dirt/brake dust had built up on them and soap/water wasn't enough to get them clean. Bought this spray (along with Mothers Detail Brush Set), and after a couple cleanings the wheels looked good as new. Did a great job of breaking up the dirt/brake dust that had built up on the wheels after months of not being cleaned. It did take a couple uses on each wheel to get them clean, but like I said the original owner never cleaned them so there were layers of dirt on them. I wash my car every week or two in the summer, and one quick spray with this stuff got them clean after that first time.

    Don't buy this - more trouble than it's worth!

    1/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mothers 05824 Pro-Strength Chrome Wheel Cleaner - 24 oz. (Misc.) I was really hoping this would work like the tire shine products do - spray it on, wait a bit, and then hose it off. Not so! The product drips down the wheels, and leaves hard, grimy deposits as streaks and spots. I had to spray it on and hose it off THREE times to get reasonably clean. And even then I needed to apply a brush to the wheels (as I usually do) with a BUNCH of elbow grease to get rid of the black spots and streaks. Much harder to use, and less effective, than dish soap. Oh, by the way - if you do buy this (which I don't at all recommend), realize that there are two versions of this product: one for chrome, and one for aluminum. Apparently, if you buy the one for chrome, and use it on aluminum wheels, it will EAT THROUGH THE ALUMINUM! So be careful what you purchase!
