+1 on the Griots Garage wheel cleaner. Get their wheel wands too. I use them constantly. Also, you can clean in between the badges with the wheel wands (before you start on the wheels of course).

Just checked them out, they have many different types of scrubbing tools !! From 3 finger pads, boar hair brushes, to bendable brushes and wands. Haha, which particular one do you recommend using ?

I bought the 1 gallon solution. I fill up an old spray bottle and spray down each rim/caliper and tire. I bought the microfiber wheel wands. They come in a set of 2 on amazon. One is a large one and the other a small one. The smaller one is used for the holes in the split spoke and the larger one for the calipers. I use a sponge for the rest.

I cant say for sure if that particular one is good or not. I had one that looked similar to that one but it was lousy because it was flimsy and would bend uncontrollably. Plus it doesnt look small enough to get into the holes in the split spokes.

Spray this stuff on after a wash and your wheels will stay clean for weeks.

Sonax wheel cleaner Full Effect is a great cleaner and available locally in Ramy 4X4, I even got one from Emarat petrol station for AED35
After thoroughly cleaning your wheels, you better seal them or even Opti-Coat them for best durability ..
Some good detailing products (CG, SmartWax, Optimum, 3D/HD, Migliore, Zaino, Swissvax, Meg's, Sonax, ...) are available in UAE

Does that damage chrome by any chance ? also, does it dull down the shininess of chrome ?

Amorall is considered a very dirty word by a lot of people. Long term it can do more harm than good.

Sounds like you don't know anything about this particular product.
Reviews speak for themselves and they're nothing but positive. I've used it myself for about 3 years.

The wheel protectant creates a dust/dirt repelling film that 's simply misted on after a wash. It's commonly used in the European car market where high dust pads are prevalent. It sprays on and dries clear and no resedue or stains are left behind.

This isn't the Armour dressing of 20 years ago that would dry out rubber and vinyl.

Re: Anyone tried these two products to clean Chrome wheels ?

i say stop being lazy and clean your rims off with Adams Deep Wheel Cleaner whenever they have brake dust on them....not that hard to do... maybe its just me but im with SNUKE... i will never use an Armorall item on my car... its cheap....its shit...and its amateur... way better stuff can be used..

thats just my 2 cents
