Best Wheel Cleaner I've Ever Used...
September 5, 2018
Goes on easy, stays put where sprayed and even turns from yellow to purple when ready to be sprayed off. I clean my wheels weekly and rarely have to scrub the wheels to get them back to their original shine and I drive a Bimmer which is notorious for brake dust shedding. Buy this one and you won't be dissatisfied.

this is the best wheel cleaner I have ever used. It completely removes all brake dust from your rims preventing permanent damage and pitting.

I have tried a number of high end wheel cleaners and they all did a great job, however, I've determined that Sonax just barely beats them out and has become my favorite cleaner. If cleaning Euro brake dust on wheels, it works really well. I make sure wheels are cool, spray it directly onto the wheels, let it sit for a few minutes until it turns a reddish color, use a wheel brush to agitate the resulting goo and then rinse well. The smell is a bit tough to take, but I loved the results. I polished and waxed my wheels and they are I was really pleased. If the smell is tough to handle, I recommend Griots Garage HD wheel cleaner. It smells like candy and the results pretty much match that of Sonax. PS21 is not a bad cleaner, as well.
ProsEasily applied Shows it working through the color change Easily rinsed Can be purchased in bulk containers
ConsPungent smell

Best Cleaning w/ Least Work

A friend turned me onto this product and I love it. We both run track events and use high performance brake pads when on track, which put out A LOT of brake dust. This product is fantastic at breaking down the dust and leaving the wheels looking great; both on track and OEM wheels. Some people have made comments about a "strong smell," but this has never been an issue for me. There is a citrus scent, but by no means overly strong or pungent.
ProsWorks Great for both Race Pad Dust and Street Pad Dust Minimal if any work required - Spray on, wait for color change, hose off! Least amount of work of any wheel product I have ever used AND gets the best results!
ConsBuy the larger value sized jugs - the small hand sprayer size is SIGNIFICANTLY more expensive per oz.

I purchased 2 x 5 Liter Bottles of Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner for my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, and 2013 BMW X5. This is by the best Wheel Cleaner I have ever used, and I have a garage full of detailing products. You really do get what you pay for, and it is worth the extra $$. Thank you for the recommendation; I will spread the word here in Virginia.
ProsEasy to Apply, when it turns Purple, hose it off.
ConsExpensive but Worth Every Cent!

This is my second 5 liter of Sonax. I really like this stuff and the ease of use. Spray it on let stand till it turns a deep purple and spray it off. I give my wheels a good washing after and all is good. Use on my widea Cayenne and really takes the brake dust away. Has a strong scent, only downside.
ProsEase of use color change indicates rinse time don't have to use much
ConsScent strong expensive

Best wheel cleaner

Best cleaner out there for your wheels. Spray it on, agitate, and end up with minty fresh wheels.
ProsWorks well just spraying on, works even better agitating with wheel woolies. Sprays on green, turns to a redish/purple hue when it is working.
ConsNot exactly cheap, but you get what you pay for, and absolutely the worst smelling product I use.
