Wheel cleaner mini-test
We rate three top buys to get your alloys sparkling
NEW PRODUCT Xpert-60 Wheel Cleaner Price: £6.98 Size: 500ml Rating: ★★★ Contact: 0161 335 0213, www.xpert-60.com
A TEST debut for the Xpert-60 range, which covers a wide variety of valeting products from clay bars to interior cleaners and scratch removers.
This wheel cleaner doesn’t follow the current trend for formulas that turn red as they work on metal particles bonded to wheels. It is an orange formula that goes on in a foamy spray and lives up to its claims for good cling properties.
Oddly, it needs agitating before being left to work and rinsing. Our rinse test did not suit it but it made progress at both attempts and was a close match for Iron Remover.
It had the edge in the brush test but was still no match for auto-wheel. Keenly priced, it loses marks because it can’t be used on sensitive surfaces.
