Default Stubborn brake dust


Bought this off someone a while back and havenít been able to get some stubborn set in brake dust off. Anyone got any advice? Iíve used Adams iron remover several times with a wheel Woolie and a brush But barely makes an impact. Even mixed it with some cg sticky wheel gel

Some reviews of the Adams product say it is not as powerful as Car Pro X. I would look toward the heaviest duty strongest iron remover spray that is safe for wheels and use that but you will likely have to scrape that off and work at it with a plastic scraper or tooth brush or something and you may end up scratching your wheels in the process, I doubt those iron remover sprays were designed to get those big burned in chunks like that off.

That's pretty bad. If you aren't a pro, you could try contacting one. I get that it isn't as rewarding as doing it yourself, but they usually have the right tools and products on hand. You can pretty quickly burn through a couple hundred dollars with trial and error.

DoDo Juice Ferrous Dueller, CarPro IronX, etc. are probably going to be your best bet...I used the DoDo Juice FD and it made short work of what was probably 3 years worth of accumulated brake dust on the wheels when I got my RCF. Just be aware, it smells absolutely putrid and you want to let it dwell only as long as the instructions recommend, it's pretty strong stuff. Personally, I'm not a fan of Adam or his products.

i must say im very impressed with carpro. Using TriX instead of plain Iron remover and its working magic. Sooo much better than adams and def turning it a lot more purple and getting better penetration. Definitely a fan of carpro over adams now( not that I was ever a fan of adams lol)
