have used dooka wheel shampoo and found it excellent on my very difficult multi spoke alloy wheels on my BMW e38 1998 728i. they clean up lovely regards todds
ps i sprayed it directly onto the wheels and also used the method of using it in a wash bucket either method was perfect

Is there much of a difference between between a normal shampoo and a wheel specific shampoo?

will depended on the manufacture but some wheel shampoo will be more aggressive to deal with brake dust.

This was discussed a few months back!
A decent wheel cleaner and normal bodywork shampoo is all that's needed. Dedicated 'wheel shampoo' is, in my opinion, just a gimmick!

I kind of agreebut! saying that unless you know the complete break down of the chemical build up of a wheel shampoo you cannot really say for sure,my question would be the reverse!...Can you use these wheel shampoos on the body paint work of a car safely,then draw my full conclusions after that reply.SJ.
