R222 Wheel Cleaner (Gel) is a truly excellent product in as much that it offers an amazing level of cleaning performance, yet does not rely on strong chemicals to achieve this. This makes it ideal for regular use on sensitive rims, and in particular on high performance cars whose wheels are prone to heavy accumulations of brake dust which normal shampoos and milder wheel cleaners struggle to shift. Furthermore, R222 Wheel Cleaner (Gel) really does deliver in terms of ease of use; its thick consistency allows it to cling to vertical surfaces and effectively loosen brake dust and road grime in situ, while it also rinses freely and easily to leave tyres and rims streak and spot free. In short, R222 Wheel Cleaner (Gel) is an excellent choice of product for safe and effective wheel cleaning duties in situations where heavy accumulations of brake dust and road grime are proving too stubborn for normal shampoos and milder wheel cleaners to fully remove.
R222 Wheel Cleaner (Gel) is a world renowned factory approved wheel cleaner that is made in Germany. Its safe, pH controlled, non-acid, non-lye-based formula is guaranteed not to attack any type of road wheel, braking system or other automotive surface. While more expensive to buy than the more aggressive wheel cleaners sold en masse in many high street stores, R222 Wheel Cleaner (Gel) can be significantly cheaper to use in the long run because of the safety it offers (word of R222's now famous surface safety spread rapidly during the 1980s as owners of supercars with very expensive wheels found out the hard way that not all wheel cleaners are created equally... just ask the numerous Porsche owners who ruined their 911 five spoke forged alloys!). The key advantage of using R222 Wheel Cleaner (Gel) is that you do not have to know all about wheel finishes to stay safe, because it works safely and effectively on every type of wheel and wheel coating currently on the market. No guesswork is therefore required, and as a result R222 Wheel Cleaner (Gel) has become factory approved by many of the world's leading car manufacturers.
R222 Wheel Cleaner (Gel) comes pre-diluted to the correct strength for safe use on all wheel types, and should thus be used neat. For best results, we recommend that it is sprayed on liberally and then left to soak for 1 – 2 hours before being agitated thoroughly using suitable brushes and/or a microfibre wash mitt (ideal choices include EZ Detail Wheel Brushes, PB Luxury Wheel Woolies and the Meguiar's Microfibre Wash Mitt). This will produce a rich foaming lather, which will quickly discolour as brake dust and road grime is progressively released. Accordingly, it is sensible to rinse out your brushes and/or wash mitt regularly during this process, otherwise there is risk of marring or even scratching your rims. The lather should then be rinsed away thoroughly with an open ended hose and the wheels then fully dried off before any rim protection or tyre dressing is applied.
