Which wheel cleaner?
We rate new formula against our reigning Best Buy
WHEEL cleaners that turn purple as they shift brake dust have shaken up the market. Now Kent-based Diamondbrite has joined the revolution with its new, ph-neutral Ruby Red.
We tested it against Best Buy and ‘purple’ pioneer Bilt Hamber auto-wheel, focusing on the formulas’ effectiveness. So we applied them, waited five minutes as they worked, then rinsed with a low-pressure hose. We also wiped them with a weighted brush to ensure equal pressure, and tried them on a neglected wheel trim. Our final factor was cost, using makers’ prices.
Our champ takes another clear victory. While the new Diamondbrite certainly works, it’s not quite as effective.
