Autobrite "Very Cherry ACID wheel cleaner - Review!

Ok guys dont shoot me down here as yes this is a acid based wheel cleaning product, but is it really that bad, ideal for those bad bad wheels? Acid cleaners are ideal for cleaning that heavily baked brake dusted wheel that simply non acid cleaners just wont move! Due to the popular Very Cherry Non Acid Wheel Cleaner we thought you might like a mini review of our Very Cherry Acid Wheel Cleaner!

This unique product has been Specially formulated to remove brake dust, surface corrosion ,tarnishing and road grime from alloy and painted wheels. The addition of carefully selected brightning agents ensure wheels are kept looking at there best .A strong product designed to dilute up to 20-1. Safe to use on plastic wheel trims! Removes rust, dirt and brake dust. Treats steel & chrome with a fast penetrating action, quickly dissolves tarnish.

So here it is then! Again from our trusted demo Volvo car the alloys are a complete mess! Ingrained, baked and welded brake dust onto the wheel, something like when you rub your fingers over the wheel-absolutely nothing moves, not even with a brush? Well this is the case with the Volvo!

As you can see the wheel is totally baked in brake dust.







This is the Very Cherry in 500ml form diluted approx 10-1 with one of our Black Canyon Metal Insert chemical triggers.





The Very Cherry Acid was applied to the wheel and left for 5 minutes





To make sure the wheel was completely clean we then agitated it with The Atlasta Wheel Brush and scrubbed!





As you can see the baked on brake dust/rust came off pretty well looking at the dirt.





A quick rinse



And this is what we were left with - clean!







Done! And we only used a little in the bottle too!

Thanks for reading and if you have any questions?

Regards Mark

Very impressive Mark....

I reckon your Brite Gel would have also have done a good job on that too!

You have a lot of very good wheel cleaners! (not to mention all the other damn good products too!).....

Regards,
Clive.

I have the cherry acid wheel cleaner which I use occasionally on very bad wheels, when nothing else will shift it, I use it sparingly and heavily diluted and it does just eneough to loosen the ground in dirt, so a thumbs up from me!

To be honest guys Brite Gel may have done the job but it might have taken more product and longer, maybe - maybe not. Very Cherry Acid has good power when you need that "mega bite" in a wheel cleaner especially on these type of wheels as the rust/dust was really baked on, horrible they were..

How about getting a test subject where the non-acid hasn't done the job and then use this on it. There is no way of knowing how bad that wheel really was i.e. the non-acid may well have cleaned it. Or do a 50/50

I'll be up for a bottle. As Rob suggests, I have some baked in dust on my snowflakes that Very Cherry non acid couldn't shift (my fault as I left the wheels a month without cleaning and harsh harsh conditions).

Could grab some and do a comparison if you guys like?
