    Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner stripped paint off my wheel.

    I'd like to start off by saying I use almost exclusively Meguiars products and have been very happy with them. Usually I use Meguiars Hot Rims cleaner and have never had an issue, but I decided to try a new product to get my wheels super clean. I took the wheel off the car and set it on the ground. I followed the instructions on the bottle and after rinsing the wheel, I was very impressed by how clean it was. Unfortunately, it seems like when I rinsed the wheels off, the product pooled up in the wheel well for just a few seconds and it dissolved the paint around the circumference of the inside of the barrel, taking it down to primer. I used the product on a spare wheel of mine, making sure to not let the product pool up, and was again very impressed by how clean it was. Let this be a warning to anyone who cleans their wheels on the ground. Don't make the same mistake I did.

    Re: Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner stripped paint off my wheel.

    I have used it a couple times on my wheels and I have had no issues with it. Is it possible that the wheels already had a defect that just happened to get worse after using the wheel cleaner?

    Hi NolanR,

    Welcome to Meguiar's Online & sorry to hear about your complaint.

    Can you please further specify which area of the wheel you are referring to? Maybe circle the area then re-upload the picture? Do you have a before picture of this area on the wheel?

    It's definitely a possibility but I doubt it. They are in good shape and I've used quite a few different wheel cleaners on them.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any before pictures of the inside of the wheel. Later today I'll dismount the wheel and take some better pictures of the damaged area.
