Hi Nick,
How does the new UL All Wheel Cleaner compare in aggressiveness to the former Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner (G9524)? Also, is the new UL Wheel Cleaner safe to use on bare aluminum (un-coated) aluminum rims and billet aluminum aluminum wheels?

It is tough to compare the aggressiveness to our Hot Rims series of wheel cleaners since this utilizes completely different chemistry. Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner provides very effective cleaning yet safe for all wheels. Yes we are approving for ALL wheels, including bare aluminum.

Thanks! Dub Wheel Cleaner does share some of the chemistry Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner utilizes but in general Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner is a more premium formulation.

To further clarify, yes, Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner does share some of the same color changing/brake dust reacting chemistry as Dub Wheel Cleaner and our Mirror Bright Wheel Cleaner. This color changing/brake dust reacting ingredient is one ingredient among many others in these three wheel cleaners being discussed. Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner will provide the most powerful cleaning ability out of the three, and is our most premium wheel cleaner which features this chemistry.

We think users will be pleased with Ultimate All Wheel Cleaners ability to cling to the wheel surface, allowing for dwell time to go after brake dust & road grime.

Nick,

I'm looking for a wheel cleaner that can not only clean brake dust but also road film as well without agitation. Basically a spray on, let dwell and power rinse for a squeaky clean wheel. My wheels are ceramic coated and get cleaned a few times a month. And while dirt can rinse off rather easily, the road film still bonds to the painted surface and requires some light hand agitation which I would like to avoid if possible.

Can the Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner do this?

Can the Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner do this?

Our product development team is not marketing this as completely no agitation simply because there are many variables. Type of contaminant or road grime, amount of on wheels, etc. We have found that Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner in many cases performs excellent with no agitation, especially when using a jet stream to rinse off or pressure washer. We have found in some cases agitation is needed depending on the above mentioned variables. Here is the directions taken from the back label for reference:

DO NOT PRE-RINSE WHEELS. Use on cool wheels and brakes in the shade.
1. Spray a generous amount, covering the entire wheel.
2. Let the product dwell for 2 - 4 minutes. Do not let product dry on the surface.
3. Spray off with a powerful stream of water.
4. Dry wheels to prevent water spotting.

Note: Agitation may be required for heavily soiled or neglected wheels.

Hope this helps!

how does it compare to D143? Of course different as there is the color changing effect found in fall out removal/iron remover, but in terms of the cleaning detergents.... more/less? I should have never purchased white wheels :wall:

Hey guys, just an FYI - many of you are familiar with this "react with iron and turn purple" technology from other wheel cleaners on the market, but there are a few things that set this product apart from those:


it's quite a bit less expensive than the competition
it's a gel like formula that clings really well to the wheel surface, allowing the product to dwell longer and work more effectively. Basically, when you spray it on it doesn't just all run down and turn the bottom of the wheel purple while leaving the top wondering how it's gonna get clean
we used a German wheel cleaner that isn't available in the US as a benchmark for this. We reached out to our international team and asked them "what's the best of the best in your country, and send us some". We beat it both performance and price wise
somehow our lab managed to get the horrible smell of this iron reacting chemical under control so it no longer smells like you're cleaning wheels with a raccoon that's been dead for two weeks and baking in the sun
whether you have bare polished aluminum, anodized, powdercoated or whatever wheels and/or brake components, this product is safe to use. Just don't spray it onto a hot surface or let it self dry on the surface and you should be perfectly fine.
while we recommend a short dwell time of maybe 20-30 seconds with other wheel cleaners, with this that dwell time can run into a couple of minutes or more. Just don't, as mentioned above, allow it to self dry on the wheels.

Can the Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner do this?As is typical with almost everything in this game, the answer is "it depends". It may well come close to what you're looking for, but you may need a bit of help with a quick once over using a dedicated wash mitt. Road film can be an inconsistant bugger, and heat cycling doesn't help the issue. But your coating and pressure washing will certainly help you out.

VettefanSimilar, but punched up quite a bit.

D143 and Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner are high pH (alkaline) cleaners so their advantage over this product is their ability to clean road grime from tire sidewalls. You need high alkaline for that, so even Wheel Brightener and Hot Rims Chrome Wheel Cleaner aren't very good tire cleaners (both are low pH/acidic cleaners).

Nick/Mike,

I noticed that it specifically says to not pre-soak the wheels. When doing my normal car washing I do the wheels and tires towards the end. With this products is it going to still work as good if they are wet, or should I change up my routine and do the wheels and tires before washing the car? Really looking forward to getting this and just wanna make sure I get the best results out of it. Thanks.

I would recommend changing up your routine and washing the wheels first. It will save you time and you don't have to worry about water splashing back on the paint after it is dry. Thus lowering your risk of marring. Check out Larry Kosilla's part 5 video on his Ammo NYC channel where he recently discussed this.

Hi pcfxer,

We do not recommend using our Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner or any of our other wheel cleaners for applications other than wheels. We know and understand other products use similar color changing/iron reacting chemistry for applications other than wheels, but Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner is designed just for wheels. Keep in mind with any product which uses this color changing ingredient, that color changing ingredient could be one of many other ingredients in the formulation, and even though the color changing ingredient is widely known for it's effective yet safe cleaning ability, the other ingredients included in the formulation may be geared towards a more specific application like wheels, to help with all sorts of variables in performance, and those ingredients geared towards a more specific application may or may not work well or be safe for certain surfaces.

Hope this helps.

So I just tried this for the first time. Followed the instructions and let it dwell for about four minute. No color change on my wheels. Now to be fair, I have done my best to keep my wheels in immaculate shape. Then I tried it on the wheels of my neighbor's truck, which I don't think has ever had the wheels cleaned. I did not notice any brown color change, but the purple color change was almost immediately noticeable and on the heavier deposits got VERY dark purple. Rinse off was easy. I will say that this is not a magic bullet to get everything. If I were really working on it, where the heavier deposits were I would have needed to use a brush to get everything off, just as the instructions say you may need to. But for lighter stuff it looked like it removed pretty much everything. One thing I am not sure about, and people may want to consider, is the reacted purple might stain concrete. Wont really know until it dries, but something to think about. All in all, seemed to work pretty good and I am happy with what it did.

If you are keeping your wheels super clean, and if your brakes do not produce a lot of ferrous content in the brake dust, you won't see much, if any, purple color show up. The color change to purple is because of a specific ingredient reacting with ferrous (iron) deposits, so if that isn't present, you won't get much color change at all. Not sure what brown color change you were looking for on your neighbor's truck, but if you were thinking about it cleaning the tires like Hot Rims Wheel & Tire Cleaner does, think again!! That type of cleaning requires a high pH (alkaline) for maximum effectiveness. Even Hot Rims Chrome Wheel Cleaner, which is a very low pH (acidic) doesn't do much to clean tires. Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner is pH neutral so it's not going to be the best tire cleaner. But its effectiveness and safety on all types of surfaces really sets it apart.

Thanks for the info Mike. In the original post announcing it, it said "The deep-cleaning gel formula turns brake dust purple and road grime brown as it gently loosens stubborn contaminants." It was that turning road grime brown part I was looking for. Not sure if this was talking about dirt or the nasty stuff you pick up during winter driving from salt and cinders and whatever the red stuff is they use around here in the mountains.

Can it be used? Potentially, but in our opinion it is not going to work well due to the products gel formula. It would take half a bottle just to cover a hood.

This is a great product Nick. It took the staining or whatever it is off the wheels on my car that I hadn't been able to get off with anything but rubbing with Black Wax.

Mike S answered this question for me in the Meguiar's facebook group. The answer is yes it is safe on OEM matte wheels as is D1801 (https://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?67026-Meguiar-s-D1801-Professional-Wheel-amp-Paint-IRON-DECON).

Which one is safer/least aggressive - Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner or Hot Rims Aluminum Wheel Cleaner? Thanks.

Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner is a more effective cleaner, I would not call it more aggressive. They use very different chemistries. For example, if one were to take an extremely dirty wheel, the technology of Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner will clean much more effectively compared to Hot Rims Aluminum Wheel Cleaner.
