We Say

Wouldn't it be great if you could clean your wheels and protect them at the same time? It would save hours of work, and leave more time for other aspects of your detailing routine. Well, say hello to Carlack Excellence Wheel & Rim Gel! Like the iron-dissolving cleaners that first appeared in the UK in 2010, which have utterly transformed the way we approach the decontamination process, this product is set to shake things up and be widely emulated in future. You simply spray it on, leave it to dwell for several minutes and rinse it off. Job done! In order to deliver maximum efficiency and performance, Carlack Excellence Wheel & Rim Gel comprises a highly viscous gel, meaning that it clings on to where you spray it, rather than running off on to the floor. Furthermore, it also features a concentrated iron-dissolving agent, which means it reacts more quickly and more effectively than many rival products too. And what about the level of protection we hear you ask? Well, how does up to a month of enhanced slickness after each use sound?

Key Features

Agitation Required No (See How To Use)
Dilutable No (Water:Product)
Cleaning Strength 8/10 (Compared To Others)


Carlack Excellence Wheel & Rim Gel is the first wheel cleaner to combine iron-dissolving chemistry with a wheel protectant. In a single step, it removes stubborn brake dust and grime, and lays down a microscopic layer of dirt-repelling polymers. The main ingredient in Carlack Excellence Wheel & Rim Gel is a powerful neutralised acid salt. This reduces iron particles into a soluble form, making them easy to rinse off with a stream of water. As a result, Carlack Excellence Wheel & Rim Gel is safer and less chemically aggressive than traditional acid-based wheel cleaners, but equally as effective in terms of cleaning power. Its gel-like composition means it clings to treated surfaces with ease, extending its working time and minimising the need for agitation in all but the most extreme cases. Its non-aggressive formula is safe for all wheel types (including anodised, chrome plated and bare polished metal finishes) and regular use will build up a layer of protection on your wheels and make future cleaning even easier.

How To Use

Carlack Excellence Wheel & Rim 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 dwell for up to 5 minutes; during this interval the initially transparent gel will gradually turn purple as ferrous compounds and sintered iron particles dissolve into solution (this effect can be very pronounced, but don't panic because it's quite normal and to be expected). Although Carlack Excellence Wheel & Rim Gel is essentially a touchless cleaner, you may agitate it using suitable brushes and/or a microfibre wash mitt if you wish (ideal choices include the Microfiber Madness Incredibrush, Braun Automotive Wheel Woolies and the Meguiar's Microfiber Wash Mitt). After 5 minutes rinse the cleaner off thoroughly with a stream of water and dry your wheels off in the normal way. Note that if the purple residue has started to dry out you may need to use a stronger jet of water from a pressure washer in order to remove it fully.
