    Ultimate Waterless Wheel and Tire

    Can I use this product as a Waterless Wash for the whole car if it is covered in old dust and grease ? I need a product to "wash" old pre war classics who hasent been cleaned for years...some of them more than 20 years. They are parked in a closed barn, so it is primerely dust...

    We would suggest our Ultimate Waterless Wash & Wax. It will provide a better experience & results for working on the exterior surfaces of these vehicles.

    That is what I am using now. But I would like some more cleaning power.

    Re: Ultimate Waterless Wheel and Tire

    What exactly do you need more cleaning ability for? The grease you described?

    We do not offer another solution in a waterless/rinsless format designed for paint & other exterior surfaces, which offers more cleaning power than our G3626 Ultimate Waterless Wash & Wax or D15501 Rinse Free X-Press Wash & Wax (only a small amount more cleaning ability than G3626).

    Unfortunately, our discontinued D114 Rinse Free X-Press Wash would have been a perfect solution for this, since it can be diluted heavier for more cleaning ability. If you can find a gallon in your area, it would be perfect.

    You know, given that you're dealing with older classics in a "barn find" kind of situation, this product may actually work quite well for you. No, it wasn't really intended to be a waterless wash for the whole vehicle, and it is quite a bit more oily than the product Nick recommended, but it should do the job. You may find some streaking with the first application to remove the bulk of the accumulated dirt and grime, but if you follow that with a very light mist and wipe using the same product, it should work great. Unfortunately, however, we only sell it in the one fairly small size, so you may be buying it by the case.

    Below is the worst case situation that I, personally, have used this on. This was in China a couple of months ago, and who knows when the wheels on this Mercedes were last cleaned. We used nothing but Ultimate Waterless Wheel and Tire on it, spraying it on quite a bit heavier than normal due to the amount of dirt and grime present. It did a great job cleaning the wheels - obviously painted and clear coated here, so not unlike the paint on the rest of the car - but it did streak a fair bit at first. We just lightly misted a bit more product onto the wheels and wiped dry with a fresh, clean towel. The final result had 35 detailers blown away. (yes, there is curb rash present on the wheel..... so sad)

    Thank you for a useful answer. Maybe I can use this first to remove the worst part of greasy dust.
    And follow up with my d115. And your rigth, it is Pretty expensive. Here in Denmark it is around 30 dollars....
