A strong wheel cleaner designed to remove very stubborn dirt and baked on brake dust, Meguiars Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner is safe to use on all wheel finishes including aluminium, clear coated, painted and even chrome.
One of the main features of the product is its unique foaming agents that help the product to cling to the vertical face of the wheel. This seems to work very well, the foam effectively softens and lifts off the dirt prior to rinsing and is a big advantage over other wheel cleaning products that simply slip straight to the base of the wheel after application.
Although it states on the bottle that no agitation is necessary and you only need to simply spray on and rinse off, if your wheels are very heavily soiled you will probably still need to use a wheel brush to help loosen baked on brake dust before rinsing. The product smells very stong and the fumes it gives off may be a little overpowering for some people so it needs to be used in a well ventilated area only.
Due to the fact that quite allot of product is dispensed in order to create the foam, a bottle will not last very long at all. There is the option a diluting the product down a little however after an initial thorough clean at full strength, as even at a diluted rate the product still gives good cleaning capabilities which would be more than adequate for regular maintenance cleaning of light to medium soiled wheels.
An excellent and very capable wheel cleaning product, Meguiars Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner is a good choice for anyone who has very dirty wheels, although it will not last as long as other wheel cleaning products.
