IMO this stuff works great.


My GF's car gets LOTS of braks dust and I have to clean them weekly. Here's the tools I use. I wheel & tire brush safe for factory wheels, A toilet bowl brush to get in the spokes and other tight areas, and Maguire's Hot Rims wheel cleaner.


First I wet the wheel and spray it with the cleaner. I give it about 15 seconds and I scrub the dirt away. Just be careful not o scrub too hard and scratch the rim. Here's a few pics in the pracess...


I only did half the rim on one wheel so you really could see the difference.



Ant this is the finished product...



I decided to take the wheels off and clean the inside of the wheel and wax them....


I rate this product a 9.5 out of 10.....

I personally like the P21s wheel cleaning gel. I use it on my wifes IS250 as well. I hardly ever have to hand wash thee wheel after the P21s. The Meguiers cleans well...but the P21s clings to the wheel and doesnt run off.

Is that a new m3 wheel? I love the graphite/powder-coat look...and as we know everything looks better on white!
Why yes that is the 09 M3 wheel. Good eye and yes everything does look better on white.
