    Wheel Brightener Question??

    I would like to step up to a professional product

    I was planning on using an empty 24oz bottle of All wheel Cleaner.



    I would like to make the ratio as strong as the "all wheel cleaner. I have factory aluminum wheels.

    Thanks

    Trying to figure out how to dilute the Wheel Brightener Professional.. Autogeek states that" you can get sixteen 32 ounce bottles of wheel cleaner out of one gallon of Wheel Brightener!"


    I think I figured it out. I'm suppose to use a 4:1 ratio. so I did my math in oz based on 24oz. Not exact, but pretty close.

    Water Wheel Brightener Solution
    4oz 1oz
    4oz 1oz
    4oz 1oz
    4oz 1oz
    Water Solution
    Total= 2 Cups 1/2 cup with 4 oz to spare.

    forgot to mention that I keep my factory allow wheels maintained. So I wonder If I can do 10:1 ratio

    2 Cups of Water and 1/4 cup of solution.. I'm Still reading up on this stuff. Has anyone found a ratio that works for them. If you properly maintain your wheels?

    10:1 would be ok.

    But I think another question would be if your wheels are well maintained, do you even need that?

    Maybe a good cleaning, then a coat of Brake Dust Barrier every so often, and just using car wash soap would work.

    I agree. My wheels are well maintained and I've never used a wheel cleaner on them. Just car wash soap while I'm washing the rest of the car...

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    WB is for baked on caked on. For well maintained wheels regular soap and water will do just fine, then a wipe down with some detail spray or spray wax and your good to go.
