    Yes, agreed, for use every-time gets expensive. Other than D1801, we do not recommend anything beyond properly diluted car wash soap & water for cleaning aftermarket un-coated polished aluminum wheels, powder-coated, etc. We know some will use our D101, D107 or D143 & get away with it on these wheels, but officially we do not recommend. Diluted Car Wash Soap or D1801 Wheel & Paint Iron Decon for aftermarket powdercoated, magnesium, polished aluminum, or any other sensitive plating. Ideally, always consult with wheel manufacturer for proper care guidelines & to determine exactly what wheel is plated/coated with.

    Noamtasini,

    What you could do, is get D1801 Wheel & Paint Iron Decon for initial & less frequent cleanings, and then use diluted car wash soap or whatever other product you prefer for your more regular cleanings.

    Thanks for all the great support Nick.
    Never in all my years of detailing cars, would've I thought that uncoated aluminum could react so badly with a wheel cleaner. I'm literally polishing a wheel a day with drill buffer, elbow grease and Mother's Polish. So time consuming. Each wheel - 1.5 hrs. Beautiful results thankfully.. But... Yeah.. Lesson learned the hard way

    Hey.. A shop would quote me hundreds of dollars for all 4 corners. Phew!

    You could just get a bottle of aluminum wheel cleaner and ultimate all wheel cleaner and use them every now and then. You don't need to use them all the time as long as you you keep the wheels clean on a regular basis.

    Yup. Got the Meguiars Aluminum blue bottle for rare tough jobs. And I'll probably even dilute that. They're actually quite beautiful now. All fixed. Never looked this good. I know this is a Meguiars forum.. But damn... Mothers Polish is phenomenal. I'm usually every 2 weeks detailing, so rarely any heavy grime/brake dust. And low dusting pads help.

    It will be diluted once the wheels are wet.

    Agreed, no need to dilute further. Our Hot Rims series of wheel cleaners are RTU products.
