    Good at what it does, cleaning old alloys.

    Basically acid in a bottle so I cant imagine it being in the long run.

    fine on old wheels but id reccomend Bilberry Wheel Cleaner on newer ones

    Re: auto glym wheel clean

    Bilberry is okay, but a touch overpriced compared to AutoSmart Smart Wheels, which is £15 for 5L and dilutes down better.

    The AG stuff is okay, but as stated, could cause damage if left to dry on some wheels. AG's Custom Wheel Cleaner is a better choice generally.
