    Does it work on chrome wheels? I read couple reviews were people stating this eats through if left more then 30 seconds. Hopefully is not sulfuric acid undercover ..

    I recommend a product call “WHITE DIAMONDS.” It cleans, deoxidizes, coats, protects, and shines any chrome (especially wheels) to a mirror finish. You can purchase it from Advance Auto, Auto Zone, O’Rielly’s, and even Wal-Mart for around $14.00 in a very good size plastic bottle. It will last a long time, because you use very little of the product each time. You simply apply the product to a clean microfiber cloth, and wipe/rub/work into your chrome, and then just wipe it off with a clean microfiber cloth, and you’ll see your chrome as bright and vibrant (or better) as ever. I’ve been using this product for almost 9 years on the same set of M109R chrome wheels, along with all the other chrome on the bike, and they all look as new (or better) today, as they did when they were first purchased.

    Thank you for another great reply, unfortunately the area on the back tire is very narrow also some spots are hard to reach not to mention the millions of spokes !!! I was looking for a product I can just spray and wash away .. not because of laziness

    I use Meguires Hot Rims (Blue bottle for aluminum) (Red Bottle for Chrome) its PH neutral on my aftermarket anodized rims and my factory chrome car wheels. Its good stuff if you keep up on the cleaning of your bike. If you let brake dust build up the only way to remove it is with a product like Nixon or White Diamond that are slightly more aggressive. I would also recommend you look for a good wheel brush that allows you to quickly get into the spokes and work the solution a little.

    I have also had good luck with diablo wheel gel and iron removers from Chemical guys. They have a good selection of bike and car detailing products and a lot of great content on youtube for anyone getting into detailing and wanting to know how and what to use.

    If you use a spray it’s very likely going to get onto your plasti-dipped parts as you try to coat all of the spokes. I guess you’ll just have to take your chances on what you think will work best.
