Rock, Lumadar, I do have that old Megs Citri Gel, I don't know how to use it, would that be a good alternative?

Is yours a gel? The stuff I was talking about is a foam spray- similar shaped bottle as the blue aluminum cleaner, the red chrome, and the purple all wheel cleaner.

If yours is a gel, I too would not know how to use it  :biglaugh:

WB doesn't destroy the heads as long as once you are immediately done with it you go ahead and rinse out the head with water. Kinda a paint, but I like how it can really break apart any grime in its way. But yes, definitely not an every wash product.

There's no question that the P21S wheel cleaners work well. The problem with them is the price. It's over $100 for the 1.32gal refill of P21S wheel gel, while you get 5 gallons of WB at 4:1 out of a gallon bottle for only $18.49.

If an agressive wheel cleaner was something that I rarely had to use, it probably wouldn't make much difference, but I have a few clients that bring me their vehicles once a year. Outside of that once a year that I see them, the never get a decent wash, so the wheels are pretty nasty.

I am going to try Surf City's Beyond Steel wheel cleaner. It's still not as cheap as WB, but it's not as expensive as the P21S stuff either.

It's a concentrate.  I think I have a technical data sheet on it at home (of course, I have no clue where it is because of the recent move)...  I want to say it was a 4:1 or 10:1 ratio but, I'm not certain. 

I **LOVE** Citri-Gel -- it's one of those products that Meguiar's screwed up on when the scrapped it when they brought the D-Line in house.  It was great stuff -- and SUPER safe.

I have a buddy that details airplanes up in NJ... he bought it by the DRUM.
