It rapidly breaks up just about anything your wheels can come in contact with. It is non corrosive and pH neutral so you can use it on any wheel surface such as chrome, alloy, clear coated, polished, anodized, stainless steel, etc. Spray it on your wheels and the formula looks fluorescent green, it quickly breaks down contaminants and changes colors to a deep red. This color change lets you know the formula has broken down, softened and loosened contaminants that can now easily be removed with a stream of water. This truly unique formula provides a deep cleaning that is not like anything you have tried before. Use the SONAX Wheel Cleaner Full Effect and you may never use another product again.

Professional Detailer Reviews

If your detailing needs include heavy wheel cleaning, then I can't recommend the Sonax Wheel Cleaner enough. It's truly a fantastic product!

What makes Sonax Full Effect different than other wheel cleaning products is that it is designed to chemically react with the sintered iron particles (brake dust) that are on or embedded into the surface of the wheels. By dissolving these corrosive iron particles, Sonax provides a much cleaner surface than traditional wheel cleaners can do.

I get to test more products than you can imagine, and usually I just find relatively small differences from one to the other. Rarely do I find products that provide serious "wow-factor". I have to admit that during these tests, the Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner most definitely provided the wow-factor!

For detailers that work on a lot of really bad wheels, I would highly recommend having this product available to cut down on wheel cleaning time. Or for enthusiasts with cars that don't get cleaned that often, this would be a great wheel cleaner to have in your arsenal.

SONAX Wheel Cleaner full effect 5 Liter Refill

From The Label

Product Description

Effortlessly removes the most stubborn dirt such as baked-on brake dust, oil and rubber residues from all types of steel and alloy wheels (including chromed and polished wheels). Acid-free so it will not attack wheel coatings, lug nuts or brake systems. With lemon fragrance.


DIRECTIONS FOR USE: From a short distance, evenly spray onto all wheel surfaces and let sit for 3 to 5 minutes. The liquid changes its colour to red as it reacts with the iron particles of the brake dust. In case of extremely stubborn soils, use a sponge or a oft brush. Finally, rinse thoroughly using a strong water jet or high-pressure washer.
PLEASE NOTE Protect against frost or freezing. Do not apply in direct sunlight or to hot wheels. Do not allow to dry.

This has been my best wheel cleaner that I've tried. I've tried P21S wheel cleaner, and some other ones that I had gotten from the local parts store, can't remember the names. This stays on the wheel and you can definitely see it working in action. I spray it on and use a soft brush to agitate it gently. The brake dust and other crud comes right off! I even like the smell, it's kind of a funky citrus smell but it is unique.

Not only is Sonax Full Effect the best wheel cleaner in the market in my opinion, it's one of the safest as well. I've used Sonax on some of the most bespoke automobiles and have never had anything short of amazing results with this product. We've been using it in our detail studio for years and will probably continue to do so, unless something else comes along that can top Full Effect. As for safety, it has never damaged or etched a wheel since we've used it. I've used other cleaners and nothing has come close in our opinion. SweetCars will be using Sonax Full Effect as our main wheel cleaner for many years to come I'm sure.

I have an Audi which is a huge producer of brake dust. I'm now buying Full Effect by the 5L size. On dry wheels I spray the FE and wait for it to change color from yellow to red. Then I spray a bit of soapy foam (either CG Honeydew Snow Foam or MaxiSuds) onto the wheel and give a quick wash with boars hair wheel brush and my wheels look GREAT. I think Audi will keep Sonax in business a long time :)
