Mother's FX Wheel Cleaner review

Let me start off by saying that I'm not a fan of the spray on and wash off type cleaners in general. There's a lot to be said for a little elbow grease. But I have to say that I'm EXTREMELY impressed with the results that I've seen from Mother's FX wheel cleaner.

If anyone's got brake dust caked wheels or you really want to clean off the back of the wheels that you can't reach with a mitt or rag, give this stuff a try.

After that, put a coat of RejeX on, and all you'll need is hot soapy water the next time.

Just to warn others. DO NOT LEAVE THE WHEEL CLEANER ON FOR MORE THAN 30-45 SECONDS. I left that stuff on one of my wheel for about 1 minutes no more and it stained my center wheel caps.

i use that spray on wax after washing my wheels, i have maybe 20 coats now, so not much of brake dust collects, and when time comes to cleaning just some soap.
so more you use it the better it gets.
works for me

some wheel cleaners contain zero acids like p21s so you can leave it on as long as you want. THe more powerful spray and rinse cleaners are not neutral and should be washed off right away.
and using anti-statics from Fk1usa.com (#425) and ChemicalGuys.com add more slickness to the wheel wax.
