I have recently started using the 2 bucket method for wheels also. Being new gloss black alloys i thought why not.

Yeah, I've had brand new powder coated gloss black wheels before and the powder coating isn't actually any more durable than the clear coat on the rest of the car. Scratches very easily, in fact.

One bucket for me, I PW rinse first then spray on the pre wash to let soak the a second PW rinse followed by the main wash with the EZ brush and small detailing brush by at this point most of the crud is already gone, never had any real issues.

I use the same stuff, but with the two buckets. PW first, or maybe even iron remover first if super dirty, then after a good rinse with the PW Daytona Speedmaster brush, wheelnut brush and a small finger mitt. There's still a lot of abrasive rubbish stuck to the wheel after a jet wash, so it's worth being extra careful IMHO.

One wheel bucket for me too. Always use a stubby lance on the pressure washer to rinse out tools before they go back in the bucket.

I always use 2BM for wheels and for the car after snow foaming. They're ceramic coated the wheels and yes they come up fairly clean after a snow foam but the amount of crud in the rinse bucket is generally from the wheel brush on the inners which is harder to clean with the snow foam / pressure washer. Surprised people take a 1 bucket approach.

I use the 0BM for my wheels!

They’re coated in gtechniq wheel armour - so a spray of gtechniq W6 and a pressure wash makes the muck fly off!

The wheel armour was a god-send when I had these wheels - cleaning by hand was a bit time consuming!

I had that on a previous car, but still used to clean my wheels properly as well. Not everything gets removed by the jet wash. Much the same as when you have a coating on the bodywork - you still need more than just a jet wash to get rid of all the dirt.

I think car manufacturers need to make more 5 spoke wheels though - the less intricate, the better!
