Yo Adams, I hate u

I love your wheel cleaner but it's just too damn expensive with how filthy our wheels get.

You really need a 2 gallon value bucket... I'm totally serious.

No special wheel cleaners used here. All I use is a cap full of Zaino Z7 in a one gallon bucket. It works great and is effortless for me.

Save dedicated wheel cleaners for when you need them!

I only used GWC when my wheels get a substantial amount of buildup on them, for my usual weekly wash all I use (as Stex suggested) is a few oz's of Car Shampoo with water in a foaming spray bottle.

2 reasons:

1) Because its pH balanced it won't degrade the wax or sealant (which you should be applying to your wheels to aid in cleaning ease) like a dedicated cleaner will.

2) Its way cheaper and conserves the cleaner for times when you actually do need it.
