+1. Meguiar's Hotrims in the purple bottle is one of the best wheel cleaner's I've used. No matter how much brake dust I had caked on my E46 wheel's this stuff got rid of it with no problems. Also, I never noticed any damage to my wheel's paint finish with the use of it.

I always thought the BMW wheel cleaner was rebranded P21S, not Sonax? Either way, I agree it works very well! Strong wheel cleaners should not be necessary most of the time. A simple wash with car wash soap should suffice.

I don't have any personal experience with it; I just thought all their products were re-branded Sonax; same bottles and all. Either way they are both good; P21S is one of my favorite wheel cleaners.

It may have changed. The last time I used the BMW wheel cleaner was a while ago, so they could be sourcing it from Sonax now.

I just got an interesting wheel cleaner; it's a new one from menzerna, it's supposed to be ph balanced so perfectly safe on uncoated aluminum. I will let you guys know how it goes. I am skeptical.

Is it real Menzerna, or is it CMA rebranded Menzerna?

Blackfire you mean? It looks like real menzerna to me, this is the bottle:



I haven't had a chance to use it yet; I want to save it for some nice aluminum wheels.

weird... i only paid $8 for the bmw cleaner last week at town and country.

I have this industrial grade acid stuff my dad got from work that you have to dilute in water before using it. It works great with my bottle caps but still too scared to use them on the rotas.
