    With that amount of spokes X 4 rims, I'd probably take ages just to clay each of them bro!
    Crap! I'm spending way more time on this forum than at work

      Eggie ... I am already frus with my 193M rims. The narrower slots need to use fingers to clean out then also worry if push too fast/hard then somebody gonna get the hurt. Hahahaha ...
      It's nice to be important but it's more important to be nice.

        You guys should really consider trying this brush out.

        2202_36188845

        It's Meg's Versa Angle Body Brush. It's meant to be use for the car body but I found that the bristle is long and soft enough that it's very useful in washing my multi-spokes wheels. The bristle are around 3" long so they can get to those difficult to reach areas between the spokes.

          i did a test using sonax wheel cleaner and rim protector


          this is before the cleaning , my weekly brakedust.





          during cleaning process got "blood" come out



          then use high pressure water jet to clean it off ,

          result is




          i would say the product work , without any actual brushing but to make it super clean you need to brush it a little but lesser compare even to maguire

          after applied the rim protector





          will test after 1 week see how much dust it created

                dark1234, was it the past weekend that you used it? Under covered porch I presume?

                Could you please update if there's any rust stain on the floor after a few more days. Cuz mine is brushed/stamp concrete and the stain are mainly on the uncovered portion - no roof above. Oh...and the stain wasn't right where I washed the wheels but they're at those places where it didn't drained properly and pools of water accumulate. No stain whatsoever right beneath the porch where I was doing the washing. Also I only noticed it after a couple of days of rain & shine. I'm still uncertain whether it's the Sonax or the IronX that caused the stain (or both) as I was using both at the time. oh....and a question: is your pebble wash floor stained/coated or not?

                Anyway, nice bleeding effect. I'm surprised it worked that well without even touching the wheels with a brush. I guess the PW helps a lot, will try it out next time around. Nice review

                  Nope no covered porch , under the sun but on last st the weather is ok not too hot , the sonax when was was diluted with water so no problem stain . My pepble floor is normal , maybe coated by dirt ( I power wash it annually )

                  I think yours could be either cement reaction or iron x

                    Bought the Xtreme Wheel Cleaner too.. I so kiasi and only spray it on wet sponge to scrub and wipe.. very alkaline feel, like Chorox.. my Pekingese were sniffing about to check out the strange odor.. didn't even get the purple effect..

                    The spray is not cheap le.. despite after 30% .. never spent so much money on a single detailing product before.. 500ml only, retail RM84 !!!

                    Any chemist here? why it turn purple le?

                    Sad part is.. after washing.. discover this.. and my heart sank.. like Titanic 3D..

                      astroboy, it's suppose to be sprayed on, leave to dwell so that it'll react with any presence of iron (turned deep red) and then only you brush/aggitate or rinse off. Yeah....it sure has a very strong smell of ammonia.

                      I'm not a chemist but from my readings of other forums I got this info:

                      "the reaction of iron in ammonical solution with thioglycollic acid in presence of citric acid to form iron thioglycolate which is pale pink to deep reddish purple in color."

                        yikes! I thought no acid? I only have specific spots to clean.. so will try it again in the coming weekend. The object penetrated my tyre.. sent it for internal patch this morning. RM25 + balancing RM5..

                          Even though it's acidic, but it should be safe. Or else Sonax would be in very big trouble already. You just made me curious.....I'll try to get a reading with my pH paper later if got the time.

                              If you were taught rinseless washing first you'd be asking questions like: why are you wasting so much water, and how do you get around the whole car quickly without waterspots.

                                get a power washer like karcher and spray the dust off. it works perfectly for me.
