The only wheel cleaner I use
February 25, 2021
I've been using the new formula Sonax Wheel cleaner for a while now and I'm extremely pleased at how clean they get my wheels. After a week of daily driving my car, my wheels get coated with brake dust and this product makes quick work of cleaning them.
ProsWorks fast on my brake dust covered wheels.
ConsA little pricey.

Bought a used set of aluminum wheels. Barrels looked like they hadn't been cleaned in years. Tried two different wheel cleaners, solvent, tar remover. No joy. Saw a video on this wheel cleaner. When the reviewer stated he bought 100gal of the product for his detail business after filming the video, I decided to try it. It's not cheap, but it did an amazing job. Put on the first time and let it sit for 10 min. Scrubbed and rinsed. About 90% of buildup removed. Repeated process and all but a few scattered spots were removed. Spot treated a third time and barrels looked nearly new. Still have a few spots of tar that are carbonized onto the aluminum, but once mounted on car they won't show anyway.

I use SONAX Wheel Cleaner Plus on my T/A 392 wheels and this product is legit. My wheels get lots of brake dust and this product makes it very easy to clean my wheels. Highly recommend SONAX Wheel Cleaner Plus.

Awesome product. Spray on and watch it happen. Using a pressure nozzle gets better results, otherwise you'll need to agitate the dirt for better results.
ProsEasy to use, no harsh vapors.
ConsLarger size with pump and keep the easy handling bottle

Bought this product after being highly recommended during a chat session with one the Autogeek chat reps. I just bought a new 2020 GM with the black painted wheels. I have never had this type of wheel before buying this truck. After using Sonax the first time, I was a little disappointed in the overall results obtained. These black wheels appeared to have some sort of film left after the final rinsing. I also used one of the recommended brushes to assist in the cleaning process by slightly agitating as suggested. The jury is still out for me on this product. It is a bit pricey,

All of the wheel cleaners work well. The SONAX WHEEL CLEANER PLUS is a step above. The products turns to a deep red/purplish color to let you know that it is doing it's job. Not a gimmick...I depend upon it while I'm busy working on parts of the vehicle. Just be careful when spraying it on the wheels, don't let it splash back near your face. Use with adult supervision.

I love Sonax. This stuff gets the job done and is extremely user friendly. It's expensive but there is a good reason.

great for cleaning neglected wheels, didn't notice any difference between regular and plus
Amazing Results - Very Unexpected
September 30, 2019
I have a '90 BMW 325is with weathered rims and a 1999 Porsche 911 with beautiful rims. Both sets are a pain to detail and I have tried more products than I care to remember. Most of them gave me the same level of results. This product was very different. I was very surprised by the amount of disc brake dust this product removed! With old BMW basketweave BBS rims, it's nearly impossible to get the dust out of the nooks & crannies! And with the Porsche BBS rims, there are bolts around the 3-piece alloys that always capture the dust and it bakes on during the summer. This Sonax product got rid of the dust in all of those annoying areas with very little effort on my part.
ProsExtremely good at getting baked on dust out of the corners and hard to reach places. Turns purple when it's working. Smells good. No acid. A little goes a long way.
ConsIt's expensive for a product that I'll use every week or more.

If it can clean my dirty aluminum wheels and not scrub until the cows come home I am a happy man. Great product !
Great on rims
April 4, 2019
I've used this product for years. It always has done a great job. Tough cleaner yet safe on rim finishes. Add a good brush.......most issues ate scrubbed clean.

I've been using Sonax wheel cleaner for a few years now. I initially purchased it to clean some neglected track wheels. It worked well, getting everything but the hardest "chunks" of baked on pad material. Not even a plastic scraper would get those off. Now it is used on all of my vehicles and I recommend it to anyone with nice wheels.
ProsEasy to use and it works well.

I've tried several supposed quality wheel cleaners in the past. Nothing compares to sonax plus in my book. Simply the best!
Prosworks fast, penetrates heavy brake dust exceptionally well

Headline should state that Sonax Wheel Cleaner Plus is the IMPROVED version of Sonax Full Effect
October 30, 2016
Cleaning power of Sonax Wheel Cleaner Plus works like a charm on 80 percent of road grime and brake dust. It removes the black barnacle-like deposits left on the wheel without scrubbing. Scrubbing is required for the tougher black deposits.
ProsBy far more powerful than anything at the Auto parts stores. Make sure you purchase the PLUS version of Sonax. The Full Effect version is not as potent.

Best Wheel cleaner I've found
July 27, 2016
I have a BMW Z4 and have been convinced that BMW's brake technology is to produce so much brake dust that the wheels can't turn. ;o) All joking aside, I've tried several different brands of wheel cleaners and the Sonax was the best by far. It gets back into the barrel and eliminates all of the dust very effectively. It was very easy to apply and required minimal brushing. I wish I would have taken before and after pictures for this post.

Awesome wheel cleaner

I have attempted many wheel cleaners to where I just don't use them. The spoke wheels on a SRT Challenger are tough to get you hands in there. I tried the Sonax wheel cleaner plus and love it. Cleans very well with minimum scrubbing. I was really scared to try it on our 2 piece polished billet wheels (non coated). I've used the 'safe for aluminum' cleaner and spent 2 hours a wheel polishing the white etching it left, so I tired it. No damage at all. I don't spray it on a dry wheel, I am nervous about that. It cleans the rotors, calipers, wheels wonderful. I even spry it on the sway bars, springs, and shocks so you get that nice clean red paint to show again. There might be something better but I needs to be proven before I change. Great product.
Dont waste your time or $$ with any other wheel cleaner

The wheels of my10 yr old Audi A8 were in good condition but clearly stained. One use of Sonax and they look like brand new. I couldn't believe the result....or how fast and easy it worked!! No scrubbing or rubbing, just spray, wait and rinse!!!! Wish i had before/after shots to show--too late now
Proseasy to use works
Consnot an inexpensive product--but worth it
Expected a little more, but overall good
April 6, 2015
So I tried this product for the first time and my overall impression is OK. This product works, but doesn't completely take off all debris even after agitating. It takes about 50-60% of the debris. The rest I have to hand wash. In my opinion, its not worth the price. I probably wouldn't buy this again.
ConsExpensive for what it actually does
Cleans well, not worth the price
January 6, 2015
I used the cleaner once and it worked ok, it did get the wheels clean, but it didn't get everything off like it said it would. I wouldn't buy again, too costly and other products do just as well.
Better than regular...
September 16, 2014
But I don't know if it's worth the premium price. I tried it vs standard SONAX wheel cleaner on opposing wheels a couple times, the first time I did no scrubbing, there was a marked difference, but neither one was good enough. Then following week I tried it in the brushless carwash, again, the PLUS side was better, but still not great. Finally I hand washed and used my brushes, both sides were identical, I probably used a little less of the PLUS just because of the sprayers, but I didn't measure.
ProsUsual SONAX quality, works marginally better than the standard if you're in a hurry.
