Default Wheel Cleaner


I have a 2016 Is200t and Iíve been trying my best to maintain it as clean as possible. Iíve ran into an issue using a tire/wheel cleaner. What is a good product that wonít damage my wheels or their finish? They are alloy with dark silver finish.

Best thing is soap and water when our wheel are cool not hot after driving. I buy low dust pad that will help a lot. Ceramic coat to give it a layer of protection an some easy cleanning.

Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner is safe and works very well.

Soap, water, and wheel brush not cleaning it off? I have a Griots Garage Wheel Cleaner that I like.

The bold part is the most important part. Don't use any chemicals on the wheels when they're hot.

Personally, I use sonax full effect, but soap and water works if you regularly maintain your wheels.
