What about these two products, promoted by Elite?
http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=391227

* Koch Chemie GreenStar (car body)
* Koch Chemie Felgenblitz (alloys)

How do they compare to Surfex HD?

That probably explains why my wheel weights now look rusty!

Autowheels is different to korossol and other fallout removers as it contains desgreasers of sorts due to it being a wheel cleaner and not a dedicated fallout removed.

Most fallout removers are pH neutral (pH7), but with a pH of 5 autowheels isn't a strong acidic formula

That's not what BH says themselves. According to their own technical documentation Auto Wheels is PH neutral and non-acidic. Maybe PB have mistakenly quoted the specs for Korrosol, which BH describe as a "controlled PH, non-alkaline fallout remover".

I use Autosmart Red 7 currently. Have previously used Carpro TR:IX and whilst it was good can’t argue with the price and performance of Red 7.

Yes - this is from their documentation:-

Bilt-Hamber auto-wheel is a pH balanced high activity wheel cleaner.

Acid based wheel cleaners are very effective but can attack alloy if damage to the protective lacquer occurs. Similarly alkaline or caustic wheel cleaners can damage substrates in a similar fashion. Acid based cleaners are typically the most effective as they attack the metallic objects reducing their size which allows them to be released from the lacquer.

auto-wheel provides the same release function by using a unique chelating process that renders the iron particles water soluble this together with a strong degreasing action ensure auto-wheel provides safe effective wheel cleaning.

Korrosol's ph is 6.5 - 7.5.
