    Meguiar's D140 Wheel Brightener Question

    Hi. I am new to Forums as of yesterday and frankly I do not know how to start a new question, etc. I have Moto Metal black factory painted wheels and I am wondering if Meguiar's Detailer's Wheel Brightener would be safe to use on them. Please advise.

    No worries, I have moved your question into a new thread. To answer your question, as long as the wheels are completed painted, then yes, our D140 Wheel Brightener should be safe if used according to directions, i.e. one wheel at a time, when the wheels are completely cooled down, rinsing first, not allowing to dwell longer than 30 seconds, rinsing thoroughly, etc. That said, we always recommend contacting the manufacturer of the wheels for their proper care guidelines & to confirm what they are made of & coated with. We understand this is not always feasible but when it is on your own vehicle, more information does not hurt.

    My two cents, black wheels are a pain. That being said, I find Wheel Brightner is something I use regularly on old grungy wheels that show a lot of brake dust and road grime on the inside barrel of the wheel. It does a fantastic job loosening the tough, brown, rust looking stains hidden by the outer wheel. For the outside face of the wheel itself, especially on black wheels, I've noticed a cloudy film that seems to build up over time. And this is just one example of course, but Wheel Brightner doesn't help here. Try a Magic Erasure on a small area if that is your problem.
