Hi :welcome
I'd like to know what kind of wheel cleaner I must use for my bike and big-scooter.
Some year ago in a old scooter (who I sold) I used a wheel cleaner and after 15 second the paind/coat drop out :cry1
I son't belived to my eyes :huh1 so the whell become mat/opaque and not shine ...
Now I'd like to use the Hot Rims Aluminum Wheel Cleaner but, I want to know if this product it's safe for motorbike whell.

Best regards and I hope to receive some answer

I prefer P21S Gel or Griots Wheel Cleaner (https://personalmoneynetwork.com/) on my car wheels, and would offer the same for a bike. I like the safety of the products and lack of heavy acids in product. You will however need a brush and some agitation is required for best results.

The Aluminum Wheel Wash is the mildest Meguiars makes, and should be safe.

You could also get them cleaned up well and then use the Brake Dust Barrier. Regular soapy water is usually enough for a while after that.

Is there a waterless method for cleaning wheels and tires for a motorcycle that is "safe" on aluminum and tire rubber without causing breakdown or deterioration? I don't really have access to a hose. Someone once told me to use bug cleaner on wheels and tires as a waterless method.

I don't know any waterless method but I use as less water for cleaning tires.

I have used Megs Ultimate Wash and Wax anywhere on my wheels with much success. For tires you could really use any APC reduced down, not at full strength.

Been using Acid free for a while but recently got the Acid diluted 50:50 it worked really well with no agitation needed. But more expensive than Acid-free but a good product.

It seems, in fact, as though the second half of a man`s life is made up of nothing, but the habits he has accumulated during the first half.
