Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner 500 ml 6 Pack Plus 10 Uber Black Microfiber Towels
500 ml / 16.9 oz

This special is too good to be true!  Your favorite wheel cleaner and the Uber Black Microfibers!

Precision Wheel Cleaner for safe and effective removal of brake dust and stubborn dirt

SONAX Full Effect Wheel Cleaner is a highly effective, acid-free and pH balanced rim and wheel cleaner that is safe for all wheels, including aluminum and alloys. This formulation is also effective and safe for use on painted wheels andwill not deteriorate clear coats.

SONAX Full Effect Wheel Cleaner contains unique chemical ingredients that effectively dissolves the sintered iron by forming a water soluble iron complex. During the use of your vehicle, brake dust and road grime become sintered to the surface of rims and wheels due to the high temperature conditions they are normally exposed. Brake dust contains high levels of iron and once sintered to the rim, becomes extremely difficult to dissolve or remove without the use of harsh chemicals.

SONAX Full Effect Wheel Cleaner sprays on as a thick, flourescent green foam. As the cleansing foam begins to work into the dirt and grime, the formula begins to turn red. The red coloration is the SONAX Wheel Cleaner forming a bond to the sintered iron on the wheel and changing its state to a water soluble complex for easy removal. Stubborn, baked on grime may take a small amount of agitation. Rinse wheels thoroughly with a power washer and wipe dry.

Directions for Use:

  1. Turn nozzle to spray position
  2. For best results, spray onto dry (pre-rinsed), cool wheels
  3. Spray evenly onto all wheel surfaces (Cleaner will spray on fluorescent green)
  4. Depending upon soil level, allow to stand 3 to 5 minutes. Cleaner turns red upon contact with sintered iron particles. This is a normal reaction.
  5. Use a brush for extremely stubborn dirt
  6. Rinse wheels thoroughly with a sharp stream of water from hose or pressure washer

Special Warning:

  1. Do not use in hot sun or apply to wheels when warm or hot
  2. Do not allow SONAX Wheel Cleaner to dry onto the wheels after applying the product 

Take a look at the demo below:

Test subject a 2010 Audi S4, with all the bad weather I figured this was a great time to test it out. 4-5 weeks without washing the car (due to rain, snow, northeast winter)

Take a look I followed the instructions to the tee and got some amazing results, dare I say this will be a hit! I'm going to say even better than my favorite wheel cleaner.

Before shot of the wheel

Sprayed it on, and it was immediately green as stated in the directions

Started to turn colors within minutes

Take a look at it cleaning. (this was after quickly using the UberSpoke Brush and Uber Boars Hair Brush nothing crazy just a quick brushing)

Used a power washer and they look great!

Another dirty wheel transformation using Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner and proper brushes

2000 miles of brake dust/dirt/grime

Great Stuff!
  Very good product. Works just as advertised, only issue I have is getting wheels dirty enough to get the cool purple effect.

  Very effective and does leave a residue staining the driveway.

I have recommended the Sonax Wheel Cleaner and your microfiber towels offers to other enthusiasts
  I used the Sonax wheel cleaner to clean up both the summer [OEM] wheels and winter [non-OEM] wheels for my 2000 Audi A6, and was pleasantly surprised to find that a little squirt of concentrated Sonax wheel cleaner on heavy, dark, brake pad debris deposits on the inner side of the wheels spokes followed by direct rubbing with a piece of soft foam sponge and a bit of scraping with my fingernails removed nearly all of such long resident deposits. And I did not get the localized black driveway stain spots that often occurred when I used other wheel cleaners or just car wash soap and water. I'll have to wait until next Spring to try this Sonax Wheel Cleaner on the deposits on the OZ wheels on my BMW that I drive on the track as well as the street, but I am expecting better cleaning than in the past.

Sonax Review
  Fantastic product. I still have a box left from my previous order. Had to get more. The added microfiber towels also helped. I am so into this wheel cleaner. The best in the market. Spray on my wheels...leave it for a few minutes..then spray wash at high volume to remove. Even beats the BMWs own wheel cleaner.

Brake dust? Pffffftt...
  This is by far one of the most effective wheel cleaner that I've used. This should make the top three as a must-have item for any detailer.

Sonax is great.
  Sonax is the best wheel cleaner that I have ever used. I like that it turns from green to maroon to show it is working. Word of advice. Don't expect it to work well without using some type of brush or rag to actually wipe the wheels to get them properly cleaned. Spraying and rinsing doesn't work well.

the best wheel cleaner for BMW Wheels and infamous brake dust
  The 6 pack Sonax Wheel Cleaner Kit is the best Godsend for BMW wheels with their infamous brake dust. No matter how dirty and caked on they are Sonax comes into action and never disappoints. Spritz on the wheels, agitate stubborn areas with a brush if needed, wait for that magical event where the green liquid turns in purple then hose it down thoroughly for brand new wheels!

Simply Amazing!
  I used this product for the first time today (thanks for the quick ship Phil), simply amazing! Absolutely, as good as promised.

  I finally used the Sonax Wheel Cleaner and all I can say is WOW! That stuff really, really works. It will remove everything but deeply embedded brake dust that has undermined the paint. I had the wheels off the car so I could get the insides clean - man what a difference Sonax Wheel Cleaner made. Keep up the great work with products that do what they say they will do.

Sonax wheel cleaner
  This is by far the easiest, most effective wheel cleaner I've ever used. I'm not a pro, but I value speed and efficiency like anyone. If you're not using SONAX (and getting it from Phil at DD), you're missing the best product and service out here.

Best Wheel Cleaner on the market!!!
  I've used numerous wheel cleaners in the past, Eagle 1 A2Z, P21S (great, but pricey), Brown Royal and all do what they say on the label, but Sonax does everything it says and more! You can't go wrong with it. Always consider Sonax and when cleaning wheels.

Great product
  Great combo. The Sonax cleans very well and the all purpose microfibers are very handy to have around.
