For stubborn really dirty wheels that haven’t been cleaned in ages I used Devils Juice and a mixture of breakthrough shampoo.

For wheels that need a quick clean that are bad but not too bad I use just breakthrough.

I brought 1l of valet pro bilbury wheel cleaner and don’t really rate it to be honest.

Devils juice and break through are my go too’s.

Devils juice is a acidic wheel cleaner. But perfectly safe if used correctly.
Just used common sense. Don’t let it dry and follow the manufacturers instructions.

I spray it on, leave for a min or so, adatate with a coupe of brushes that have been soaking in breakthrough then rinse off.
