    This cleaner does fairly well at getting brake dust.

    I know I can always trust Griot's products so I'm glad they are now making this wheel cleaner - I have a new favorite!

    This is one of those rare products that works really, really well.
    I have a couple old BMWs and their brake pads produce a lot of black dust. I've tried a LOT of different wheel cleaners; everything from BMW's wheel cleaner to Griot's other wheel cleaner but none of them really work as well as this does.
    You will still need a brush or cloth. Never use a wheel cleaner that claims to be "spray and rinse", they either don't work or are unsafe on your wheels.
    As an added bonus, it turns a gory red as it attacks the brake dust. It looks like the set of Carrie. If it doesn't turn a drastic red after you spray it on, it's still working it just means that you probably have ceramic brake pads.
    Buy the gallon size and a spray bottle, either from Amazon or Griot's. Same price, Griot's has free shipping.

    Pros- works. really works. turns a cool blood red as it works, impresses/scares small children, smells like Flintstones vitamins.

    Cons- smells like Flintstones vitamins.

    After reading so many reviews of high praise for this and other wheel cleaners I thought it was time to try another one after a few years. This had little effect cleaning my wheels and was a waste of money. I hadn't planned on posting a review so it didn't occur to me to take "before" photos, but after seeing how poorly Griot's performed I took 2 "after" photos and posted them above where they appear with the product description and stock photos. This removed very little and worked no better than other general purpose cleaners such as Simple Green or Krud Kutter. Those are good cleaners and much cheaper than this. I purchased this over some other well reviewed wheel cleaners here because you get 35 oz. instead of around 16 and so seemed a better value. But after such poor results from one application I used it over again for each wheel. That still didn't do much though, even using a stiff bristle brush. After doing 8 wheels I have less than half left. Of those 8 wheels only one produced any color change in the product, turning slightly pink in 2 small corners - nowhere near the "gory blood red" claimed by reviewers of this and similar products. Not that I'm subtracting stars for that, but perhaps they've changed something. I let it sit the full 5 minutes each time too. You don't get a sprayer with the 35 oz size either - what you see in the ad is exactly what you get. To be fair, the product description does only claim that it cleans off brake dust and road grime, but any good cleaner will do that. Guess my wheels somehow accrued kryptonite dust adhered with Gorilla Glue? Several of the reviews, however, are so glowing you'd think they never used soap before so I had to offer a reality check here. If your wheels start out looking like mine in the photos above then don't expect much.

    I own a 1995 Toyota Camry that I recently got from a family member. The car is very well maintained on the inside, but not so much on the outside. The rims are particularly nasty and the last time I cleaned them, I did it with pure car soap, a toothbrush, and elbow grease (you can guess how long that took). Even then, the rims were still not that clean.

    I've been a longtime user of Griot's products. They are always pumping out the latest and greatest of products to keep cars showroom clean with the least amount of effect. The heavy duty wheel cleaner does not dissapoint. After the first spray on my rims, the cleaner turned blood red and I could see the dust breaking apart. After that, it was just some simple scrubbing and then rinsing. True, it did not get all of the dust on first application, but it got a huge amount off.

    This product is definitely the one for you if you enjoy having a clean car. It's easy to use, effective, and not that expensive. As stated before, stubborn brake dust may require some aggitation still, but the product is good as far as getting off every day grime. If I could have any complaint, it would be that it smells a bit funny, but you get used to it after a while and it really is not that bad.

    All in all, another great product from Griot's! Looking to save time? Looking to get that clean? This one is the one for you with no doubt.

    While this did indeed clean my wheels, I was expecting to see some awe inspiring results. Maybe my wheels were just not dirty enough. But I barely noticed the color change that should happen when you spray it on the dirty wheels. There is also a pretty unpleasant smell that takes some getting used to. For the price I was expecting a lot more.

    This is an excellent product overall, and it does what its supposed to do. The ONLY caveat that I have is that it stinks pretty bad. So bad in fact that you can't get rid of the smell easily, and it literally stays on the ground where it was washed off for DAYS, even after it rains. That isn't a deal breaker for me, and I will continue to buy it.

    I usually don't care how a product smells, but this is so stinky, that its does give me pause whenever I use it. I guess I'm thinking, if it smells so bad, how can it be safe?
    That said, I plan to order it again.

    This cleaner does fairly well at getting brake dust. It will not remove hardened brake dust. One negative is that this product puts purple stains on rotors. The stains come off once you drive the car. I will be trying Sonax next.
