For many people, the state of their car’s appearance can be a major source of pride — or a source of embarrassment, depending on the day. Summer is the ideal time to take advantage of the good weather and give your car all the TLC it deserves, from car washes and waxes to interior detailing and more.

How does it work?

Meguiar’s Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner uses an active gel formula that clings to wheels and stays wetter longer, providing better cleaning action than traditional foaming cleaners. Its deep-cleaning gel turns brake dust purple and road grime brown as it gently loosens stubborn contaminants. Since the cleaner is created with an acid free and pH balanced formula, it’s safe for all wheel finishes and on painted brake components.

In order to get the best results, the brand recommends following a few guidelines. Firstly, you’ll only want to take on a cleaning job when your wheels and brake components are cool to the touch and you’re working in the shade. There's no need to pre-clean or rinse your wheels before applying the cleaner - simply spray a generous amount of the cleaner over the entire wheel, and let it sit for two to four minutes before washing it away.

What people are saying

As a top-rated pick among Amazon shoppers, Meguiar's Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner has earned a 4.5-star rating and thousands of positive reviews from customers.

“The best wheel and tire cleaner you will find. Nothing matches the power of this cleaner,” shared one reviewer. “You spray and leave it for a couple mins. You can see the dirt being pulled off instantly. I use this every time. If this is your first time, spray, rinse and repeat 3x. Tires will look new.”

“Gave this a test on a recently washed car, where I didn't do a great job on the wheels. Sprayed a liberal amount on the wheels, waited around 5 minutes and it all turned purple. Gave it a rinse with a high pressure spray, and the alloy rims are pretty clean! Not bad for almost no effort,” added another.

Many reviewers have noted that while this product does work to take off dust and dirt with little effort, you will need a generous amount per use, which means that you’ll likely need a restock fairly quickly.

“As a detailer I wanted to try it out... What I didn’t like was after two cars, both with 19’ rims, the bottle was already almost empty,” noted one reviewer. “In the video and on the bottle it says to be generous with how much you spray. If you don’t spray enough the product works poorly.”

Verdict

According to customer reviews, Meguiar's Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner is definitely a must-have for those who are looking to add some extra shine to their cars this summer. You’ll want to follow the brand’s instructions and use plenty of product for a deep clean, but with its current sale price of just $9, it’s the best time to stock up and save on this powerful wheel cleaner.
