About this Product
Safe For All Wheel Types
Some manufacturers resort to caustic acids and heavy alkaline compounds to cut through brake dust. These cleaners are corrosive themselves, and destroy shiny wheel finishes and car parts over time. Chemical Guys Diablo Wheel & Rim Cleaner is pH-balanced, gentle, and perfect for cleaning any type of shiny wheel finish on any vehicle. Clean off any painted wheel, polished metal, chrome, anodized, powdercoated, or wrapped wheel without fear of tarnishing or destroying any finish in any way. The gentle formula is safe to use around any other car part, including exterior paintwork, glass, clear plastics, and undercarriage parts like fender liners and suspension components. Simply rinse off any overspray without any fear of etching or staining any other car parts.
Devilishly Good Wheel Cleaner
Diablo Wheel Gel is the perfect solution for lifting, separating, and lubricating abrasive brake dust particles that ruin the shine of wheels and undercarriage parts. Rinse off any loose filth and brake dust, then spray on a generous helping of Diablo Gel all over the face and barrel of the wheel and tire. Scrub with any one of the specialty wheel and tire cleaning brushes stocked by the Chemical Guys store, then rinse away all the loosened filth and debris floating in the foamy cleaner residue. Oxygen-infused cleaners and slick lubricants guide filth off the wheel and into a foaming lather that will not scratch sensitive surfaces when scrubbing with a brush. Spray Diablo Gel through a foaming Ducky sprayer to stick thick cleaning lather on intense stuck-on wheel grime and hard-to-reach areas. Clean wheels at every car wash for immaculate shine and clarity with Diablo Wheel & Rim Cleaner.
Save Wheels From Permanent Damage
Brake dust and road filth is not just ugly, it will destroy your wheels if left unchecked. The abrasive concoction is blended with raw steel filings from brake rotors, burnt asbestos brake pad material, and cooked carbon from the intense heat generated whenever braking. These compounds are sprayed all over wheels, paintwork, and undercarriage parts under hard braking, and can cause intense buildup and rust if left uncleaned. Regular washing with Diablo Wheel Gel gently removes these contaminants before they can build up to thick crusty levels that are nearly impossible to remove.

Unfortunately it's just not working out, I commited and bought the big bottle , made a spray solution and a separate bucket for wash for my wheels. I spray it on liberally and go to the next wheel spray that one, and go back to the previous one with my split brush one pass and my woolie one pass and microfiber cloth for the spokes followed by a rinse and then a leaf blower. Every single wheel looks partially done afterward and I have to go back over it with a microfiber and quick detailer again before it looks clean.
Fir the price I would expect this to be a game changer. It isnt. I came from a foaming Armor all extreme wheel cleaner that I used on my last car that was amazing, literally almost Zero effort. Spray on.. rinse off.. small touch up with a rag and your done. 3-4 minutes total each wheel 22's with split spokes.. photo of the dirty car attached as well. This stuff takes me three passes and 8-10 minutes a wheel so roughly 40 minutes just on rims. I enjoy keeping my things nice but I just can't waste unnecessary time when theres an easier more efficient way. Not sure of the return policy but I've used it three times now and I just want to get rid of it because it frustrated the piss out of me that I spent so much time and money on something that doesnt work (for me)
Maybe others have better results.. I dunno. I read all the reviews before buying this as I am a research fanatic before I buy something.. I was hoping the good reviews were more accurate than the bad ones. They weren't.. (for me)
There are stronger wheel cleaners out there but those can do damage to the delicate parts, like emblems, if you forget to wash off any over-spray. The Diablo wheel cleaner is safe enough to use on your wheels. It will not damage exterior trims. This spray will not cause the adhesives on your trim to weaken. Most plastic trim on the exterior of your car are attached with adhesives. This is the reason why you should not use strong chemicals. The clear coat on the paint will keep the finish protected from harsh chemicals but the adhesives and the rubber seals on the exterior of the car are delicate items. The rubber door seals are more delicate than tire rubber.
Diablo should be diluted. Use one of the Chemical Guys dilution bottle for this purpose. The pump in the spray head is resistant to chemicals. That is what you want to use with these cleaners. A good quality spray bottle helps make your cleaning experience more pleasant. You will pull that spray trigger many times. It helps to have a properly designed product. The Diablo is somewhat thick. A spray head that has a long trigger will help you.
Dilute the cleaner with soft water. RO or deionized water works best. Spray liberally on your wheels. Give the product time to work and then scrub the wheels. I know, somebody probably sold you a product in the past that claimed you do not have to scrub and you were disappointed. It is hard for any cleaner to remove dirt and grime without you physically scrubbing the wheels. Diablo is a good cleaner but you will need to scrub that grime off. That's just the way it is. Diablo makes the job a little easier because any dirt that you scrub away will not stick back to the wheels as long as you do not let the product dry. It basically floats the particles away from the wheel surface for a short time. Long enough for you to hose it off.
Do you really need a product that was designed to clean wheels? Can you use the same car shampoo that you used to clean the painted surfaces of the car? I think so. In my opinion, you can get away with that. Use the same car shampoo for your wheels. It's your physical effort that pulls the dirt off of the wheels. Diablo is probably stronger than your PH neutral car shampoo but you can compensate with a little more physical effort.
This is another good product from the detailing geeks. It can be economical. It is very safe, for your wheels and for you. It will help you clean your wheels without causing potential problems with your trim. I highly recommend this product if you feel the need to use a wheel cleaner instead of using your car shampoo.

UPDATE: got a lightning deal enough to last years.. so keep your eyes open! , removed price comment as I managed to get a sweet deal in then end.
However compared to the 'mothers' branded stuff that I had last, this did about half as well as that did. That amount of product you get with the concentrate it's a better deal than the 'mothers' stuff, but over all you will end up with a little more labour intensive task and using more product to do the same thing.
