    Bilberry didnt work for me. found it very poor.
    wonder wheels done the job withing sec's and yes its acid but its never done my alloys harm.........

    wonder wheels win hands down imo because it works 98% of the time

    Another one that agrees!!!

    DO NOT use any if that red spray stuff from tesco...

    I bought some as it was cheap and it done the job but after a day I noticed one of my alloys had a slight pink tinge...

    Stick to a well known brand....

    Have a word with Mark at Autobritedirect, our forum vendor. I use Very Cherry from him, non-acidic, it's the first cleaner I have used that is anywhere near as good as the devils spawn that is wonder wheels.

    I use a product called virosol and it can be dilute to 10-50%
    Its not anywhere near as harsh as wonder wheels which will through time eat into the wheel lacquer but the key thing is to minimise the contact time on the wheels image.jpg

    If you have yellow staining then wonder wheels is probably the best at removing it, but use this product with caution. As others have said it is acidic and if continually used will ruin the finish of your rims.

    Very Cherry is a good product too, but your wheels do need to be in a reasonable condition first. Use this after you've got your rims the way you want them with wonder wheels.
