Meguiars Wheel Brightener is a professional grade, concentrated powerful wheel cleaner that is designed to quickly and effectively remove the toughest of brake dust and dirt with the minimum of fuss and is safe to use on all clear coated, factory painted and chrome wheels.
Due to its concentrated formula it requires little to no agitation unlike other wheel cleaners and can simply be sprayed on, left to dwell for a short amount of time and then thoroughly rinsed off. You can be dilute it up to 4:1 with water which will help to give a weaker wheel cleaner that can be used on less heavily soiled wheels and will also help it to last longer.
Meguiars Wheel Brightener should not be used on polished aluminium or anodized wheels as the ingredients in the product may tarnish the finish. It should also not be used on wheels that have been scuffed or have any areas of corrosion on them as the cleaner can work its way under the surface and make make the problem allot worse. It is advisable to wear protective latex gloves when using the cleaner and to only use it in a well ventilated area on a calm day to prevent the wind from picking up any overspray and potentially contaminating your paintwork.
Even though the wheel cleaner is a heavy duty and powerful product it is still non acidic, which is why it can effectively be used on most wheel finishes without damaging them. It is bright purple in colour and has a fruity fragrance to it. It should be decanted into a designated trigger spray bottle and applied to the wheel with a controlled mist.
If used correctly, Meguiars Wheel Brightener can be a very useful product for restoring heavily soiled wheels with baked on brake dust that other wheel cleaners would simply not be able to shift. It is ideal for cleaning up the rears of wheels that can become highly contaminated over time but is not really suitable to be used as a regular wheel cleaning solution, even in its diluted form.
