    D140 Wheel Brightener question

    As I cannot get the D143 in Europe ( still waiting for an explanation from Meguiar's US) I was wondering if the D140 is safe to clean tires at the same time as cleaning the wheel.

    I don't know the answer on whether it's chemically a problem for the tire or not, but I can assure you that while cleaning a wheel with Wheel Brightner there is plenty of product that rolls around the wheel and drains off over the tire. All without any noticeable effect. Personally, I use an all purpose cleaner or other dedicated tire cleaner for the rubber, and wheel wells, at the same time I'm allowing the Wheel Brightner to dwell on the rim.

    Wheel Brightener isn't really meant to clean tires. For best results, get an all purpose cleaner or "tire" cleaner.
