Which wheel cleaner for my rims???

Im between Adam's Deep Wheel cleaner and Adam's Green Wheel cleaner. I currently use Turtle Wax f21 wheel cleaner, but i have heard / noticed that it destroys your clear coat over time. I'm looking for a strong but safe wheel cleaner. Any ideas??? I'll post a picture of my rims if that helps.

Re: Which wheel cleaner for my rims???

either would be fine and I would recommend having both. The deep wheel cleaner is great if it has been a while since you cleaned them and have a lot of baked on crap. If you are pretty consistent in keeping them clean then it is probably overkill and the green will be good enough.

You won't be disappointed. And adams has a money back guarantee so if for some reason you don't like one or the other just return it.

Re: Which wheel cleaner for my rims???

Sonax is my go to when I use a wheel cleaner, but typically I use soap and water, but I also clean them quite often so it doesn't take much to get the brake dust off.

I use the same car wash soap I use on the body. In each case we're washing a clear coat finish. I also clean them before too much dirt builds up.
