    Anyone use Bilberry? What's it like? Thinking of getting some myself since it's not acid based like Wonder Wheels.

    Most dirt? Would it sort baked on brake dust?

    I find, leaving it on to soak in while cleaning the exhaust tip, long enough to get baked on brake dust off, I also have another non acidic wheel cleaner, but I don't know the name of it as I get it from a mate who sells all the gear, he just fills up a bottle for me occasionally, if the bilberry doesn't cut it (if I have kept it far too long to clean it) I use this industrial stuff my mate gives me and it's all gone.

    Fr the hard burnt on stuff, use bilberry neat, pour some into a bowl of some sort, use a brush and paint in onto the wheels, really working it in with the brush, leave to soak and rinse off.

    Bilberry is very good neal,

    Spray it on, leave it on for as long as you want, cos its not acidic, give it a brush and rinse it off,

    Its all i use on the wheels and takes baked on dust off too,

    When i bought my winter wheels, they were in a bit of a state and i used bilberry with a pressure washer and the came up brand new
