Using acid on your wheels is safe to do so as long as you are aware that this product is an acidic, strong wheel cleaner. Here are some guidelines using this product and tools we suggest to get the job done right.
Here we have compiled a product list that we think is essential for cleaning your wheels properly.
AD Tools you will need.
- Autobrite DBS brush set. This set is perfect to clean your wheel nuts and wheel faces. There are various sizes of brush to cope with almost every wheel on the market today, great to use and very effective.
- Autobrite Wheel Bucket. As you are cleaning your wheels you will be pulling off lots of dirt, grime and brake dust. An AD bucket with a shampoo solution will be ideal and will assist your clean.
- A Mini Reaper Detailing towel. This will be perfect to dry and finish your wheels.
How To Use.
One wheel at a time, apply VCA to the wheel completely soaking the wheel with product. Allow the product to dwell for 1-2 minutes, this will soften the dirt & grime and start to pull off a dirty, black residue. With your DBS brushes, agitate the wheel and tyre and work into a foam ensuring all areas are cleaned. Then take your Wheel Brush and agitate the back rims of the wheel again ensuring all areas including behind spokes/faces and between calipers are totally cleaned. When your wheel is cleaned thoroughly pressure rinse all the wheel and tyre. If the wheels need a second clean, go again with VCA using the same application method.
As you may now notice your brushes will be black and covered in the most horrible dirt, grime and brake dust! A thorough rinse in your wheels bucket to rise off the residue and you’re good for the next wheel. We practice this technique when cleaning wheels here at Autobrite and always recommend cleaning one wheel at a time. This way the wheel is completely clean and you’re not going to miss any parts whilst in the process, get the job done and move to the next one.
When you have finished cleaning all of the wheels, give them a wipe and dry with your Mini Reaper to avoid water spotting. To finish your wheels off, a coating of Blendz wheels sealant and Well Dressed Trim & Tyre Gel on the tyres and you’re good to go!
For a more intense, deep wheel clean and decontamination, follow our decontamination procedure with products such as Purple Rain Version 3, Just The Tonic as a de-tar remover, and our fine cleaner clay along with Berry Blast QD for complete decontamination. You can always step up with a coating of our Blendz Wheel Sealant to give your wheels that protected, gleaming finish and also to help reduce brake dust build up. Future wheel cleaning will also benefit from this procedure making them easy to clean.
VCA can dilute up to 20-1 for light cleaning, and as low as 2-1 for heavy cleaning and degreasing to remove the most stubborn, baked on brake dust and grime.
