Default New Chrome Wheel Cleaner works great

It's been too far and few in between since I last detailed my chrome wheels and with my apparent poor choice of replacement aftermarket brake pads, my front chrome wheels get noticeably dusty in a month's time.

I tried the new Chrome Wheel Cleaner and to my relief 99% of the dust rinsed off nicely! There were some stubborn stains in some areas of the lip (they come off only with persistent scratching of a finger nail) but I'm certain that it's nothing that a lil Chrome Polish can't remove. I've had great success with this polish in the past. As advertised, Chrome Wheel Cleaner did not have negative effects on my chrome-plated wheels.

For quickies in between detailing I think using the new Foaming Wheel/Tire Cleaner will help prevent significant build-up of brake dust. I haven't waxed my wheels in a while either so I'm sure doing so will help facilitate the dust rinsing off even better after whatever products I spray.

Thank you Mothers for providing me with products that allows me to maintain my hobby of keeping my truck looking good, at the same time doing so easily and quickly. Time is precious!

I'm looking forward to also trying out the new Polished Aluminum Wheel Cleaner on my wife's car. Is it available locally?

Default Re: New Chrome Wheel Cleaner works great

Glad the new Mothers Chrome Wheel Cleaner worked great on your chrome plated wheels! It's an all-new formula, but much easier to use than our old Wheel Mist Chrome/Wire. It is in the familiar red bottle with the red car on the label, and is available at Pep Boys and Advance Auto Parts stores as far as major retailers go.

Our new Polished Aluminum Wheel Cleaner is a virtual reincarnation of our old Wheel Mist All Wheel with the same yellow car on the label, so it is safe for wheels that are polished aluminum, clearcoated, or some of both. It is available at your local Pep Boys.

Our Foaming Wheel & Tire Cleaner remains unchanged this year, with the exception of the label. Safe for clearcoated factory/OEM wheels, it is widely available at Ace Hardware, Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, Meijer, Pep Boys, and True Value Hardware.

If your wife's wheels are factory clearcoated, try the Foaming Wheel & Tire Cleaner instead.

And one thing to keep in mind, you can use a clay bar on your wheels to remove stuck-on soil -- but keep it dedicated for wheels and lower body panels just for safety's sake.
