Bilt Hamber Tagline:
Auto-wheel is a non-acid, non-alkaline alloy wheel cleaner, and in most cases, no agitation is required.
auto-wheel’s formulation reacts with the oxidising surface of the metallic particles, rendering it water soluble. The rapid removal of this microscopically rusted surface reduces the embedded particle size and releases the particles from the surface. Unlike acid based alloy wheel cleaners, this method is harmless to the wheel’s finish. The reaction can be observed by a rapid colour change from clear to deep red. After a simple hose, rinse down or jetwash, it leaves the wheel spotless.
In severe cases, the included wheel brush can be used to assist the process.
DESIGN OF BOTTLE AND PACKAGING:
Good job Bilt Hamber changed this design. I've had this bottle for so long, it was the old design which was nothing special. I felt like I was stepping back in the 80's with this bad boy in my hand. The instructions are clearly labeled and you twist the nozzle to open and close the spray.
The new design was needed and looks clean and simple!
This has not effected the overall rating of this product or any other product we review.
Spraying on an average dirty alloy, the trigger spray released the product okay. wasn't a full spray (this was the old bottle design), was more of a spray where you can concentrate on an area.
I used a brush to agitate the product, as I felt I missed some places and the result was instantly impressive. The purple river that flowed from the alloy was amazing, which was a good indication that its working well. I then pressure washed the alloy clean and wiped dry.
The cleaning ability on this product is monsterious, you would no way need this everytime you clean your wheels!!
Now... this smell is not for everyone - a bit like Marmite. Personally I don't mind the smell. It doesn't smell like chemicals, but at the same time not a very fragrant smell. Brother in law hated it. Oh well, each to their own
EASE OF USE:
Very easy to use. Spray on the alloy, and wait. As soon as the alloy turns purple, it's working. If the alloy is servely dirty you can agitate the product. I done it on mine just to see the effect.
Then rinse it off and "Voila" all done.
100% this product is worth it. If you don't have a wheel cleaner or using one, switch. I guarantee you this will blow your mind!

For a 1lt, I think the price is the best out there
There is not a single bad thing to be said about the cleaning power of this wheel cleaner. The product performed so well, I was impressed with the results and the price.
Its one of the best wheel cleaners I have tried that you can buy on a regular basis. not a limited edition ;) and you immediately see a reaction as soon as you spray. This product is an animal at cleaning and the amount use, no wonder it took me so long to go through the whole bottle.
I will definitely be buying this again, no hesitation.
Get It: WTF YOU WAITING FOR!
