The Problem

Iv got sum Kei RS GT alloys, and overtime brake dust has started to stick to the dish and its really hard to clean it off. here is a picture i took when i last cleaned the car.
As you can see the brake dust is stuck onto the wheel :(




i didnt want to scrub it too hard with a wheel brush incase it scratched the surface and peeled off the laquer, so i sought advice from people who knew their stuff. they recommended Bilberry Wheel Cleaner
Top marks from me! :clap:

The product



Valet Pro - Bilberry is an outstanding safe wheel cleaner.

* Safe on all types of wheel.
* Completely acid free.
* Also effective on baked on brake dust.
* It smells nice too

Application


* Heavy Soil - use neat or dilute 1:1 trigger spray on wheel allow to dewell for 5 to 10 minutes aggitate then jet wash off.

* Lightly Soiled - dilute 1:5 trigger spray on then simply jet wash off for clean wheels.




The Verdict


Best wheel cleaner i have used by far! takes off some much dirt even without scrubbing! Iv tried branded stuff from halfords which i wasnt too pleased with. Bilberry is also acid free so i felt confident using them on my alloys.
Here were the results (without scrubbing)

Good work Shafz. Top stuff this only heard good things about it! Did you dilute it down at all?

:)
as the brake dust was pretty stubborn i used it neat....next time i will dilute it (1:1) as it doesnt need to be as strong, only a few little marks left which im chuffed about!.

iv sealed the wheels now with poorboys so il see how that goes :D
