Product Description

Heavy-Duty Wheel Cleaner - For Removing Tough Dirt & Road Grime
pH Balanced & Safe For All Wheels

Thank you for selecting this quality Griot's product. Heavy-Duty Wheel Cleaner is a pH balanced, non-acidic, and non-caustic wheel cleaner that is safe for use on all wheel finishes. It clings to the surface to safely break down and loosen stubborn brake dust, road grime, and other tough contaminants. Enjoy the best!


Useful Directions: Make sure wheels are cool to the touch before cleaning. Rinse wheels with water and apply the cleaner to all wheel surfaces, allowing it to sit for 3-5 minutes minutes while it loosens the brake dust and road grime. Agitate with appropriate wheel cleaning tools and rinse with water until runoff is clear. Dry the wheel with a soft clean micro fiber cloth. Note: It is normal for Heavy-Duty Wheel Cleaner to change color as it is working.

Would they buy this item again? Yes
I have a great experience using the heavy duty wheel cleaner. The factory brembos on my car are aggressive and unfortunately the pads that came with my car produce insane amounts of brake dust. This product does help with stubborn break dust. I wish I had 25 more bottles of it.

Followed directions clearly and had no color change to red and still requires the effort of scrubbing the entire wheel to get clean. Tried on three different cars with different levels of brake dust and still no color change. I had high hopes for the HD wheel cleaner because other Griot's products I have are fantastic, but in this case I was let down. I think for now I will stick to the Meguiar's Ultimate wheel cleaner.

Pretty Good, that is the only word that comes to mind when using this product. Not exceptional, not fantastic, just plain old good. I received a bottle of Griot's HD Wheel Cleaner as a free add on to an order a few months ago, and have already used it all up. It is very hard to give a nice even coverage of the wheel with the product. It seems to work pretty well, pulling off most iron deposits on the wheels, but all around feels like a much cheaper and less effective Sonax Full Effect. If you cannot justify the price of Sonax Full Effect, this would be a decent substitute, but I guess this is one of those times, you get what you pay for.
