I have been using this. Meguiar's "Hot Rims Aluminum". This is extremely gentle. My wheels are brushed and clear powder coated, and I haven't noticed any issues at all from using this. Just make sure you get this exact blue-colored one, because Meguiar's offers a standard "Hot Rims" product that is colored pink, and it is more aggressive.

I get mine at Walmart. Sometimes they have it on a good sale.

Honestly, I would use it on my other cars. Dilute it as recommended, put it in a dedicated spray bottle, and just use it on my daily driver wheels and such. Maybe also use it for cleaning exhaust tips and similar metal parts that get dirty.

Yeah, that was pretty much straight acid. Glad the damage wasn't worse, or in a spot that is more easily noticeable!

I have use Ammo NYC brute and plum cleaners. He is a detailer that specializes in high end rides and designed this on his own. Good combo to get caked on brake dust off plus the plum to make sure you got it all.

AMMO products are very good, and very pricey. I just can't spend $20 on 16oz of wheel cleaner. I spent $18 on a whole gallon of P&S Brake Buster. Just my choice, of course!

If you like the AMMO Plum because it changes color as it removes the iron deposits,I highly recommend picking up a $4.95 23oz bottle of Eagle One just to try it out. At that crazy low price, why not? It turns purple as it breaks down the dust like the AMMO. You can also use it to remove iron spots from your paint, as it is pH-neutral.
