Acid-free rim cleaning - thoroughly and material-friendly

Acid containing wheel cleaners can induce corrosion on wheel bolts and metal parts like the brake calipers. For this reason an acid free cleaner is strongly recommended: Very good results can also be achieved without aggressive acids, this was proved by the SONAX XTREME Wheel cleaner full effect, winner of a comparison test by AUTO BILD SPORTSCARS (10/2012) The test winning formula is now also available in a practical 400 ml spray can.

Incidentally, the cleaning can be greatly simplified through regular application of the SONAX XTREME Wheel rim coating. The spray is very easy to apply – and it will protect painted alloy wheels, stainless steel wheels, chromed and polished surfaces. After thorough cleaning the wheel rim sealant is sprayed on and evenly distributed with a polishing cloth. The sealant combines with the wheel rim surface within an hour. The result is a high gloss, transparent protective coating that is as hard as glass, and it lasts for weeks. Dirty water just runs off and the typical soiling is much easier to remove.

„Spring cleaning“ for winter wheels

When it’s time to change over to summer tyres, you should take the opportunity to thoroughly clean off the winter dirt contamination and to care for the tyres and wheels. Be sure to use an acid free wheel cleaner.
It seems confusing to many motorists, when a winter windscreen cleaner claims to provide freeze protection at minus 60 degrees. In our latitudes it is a rare occurrence to see the thermometer standing at -20 degrees Celsius. Such freeze protection figures are therefore, misleading. Incidentally, these cleaners would be so viscous, even at -40 degrees Celsius, that they could hardly be conveyed through the windscreen washer system.
In many maintenance guides for alloy wheels a sealant is recommended for maintaining the value and to simplify the cleaning. The care tip from expert Richard Hanauer is the SONAX XTREME Wheel rim coating: "The easy to use spray from the SONAX XTREME series, in the latest generation based on a further developed hybrid formula, which offers distinct advantages over conventional processes.

A high performance winter windscreen cleaner guarantees clear vision in seconds. That is good for safer driving, but it also has a positive effect on cost calculation.
A question on the subject of windscreen cleaners we are frequently being asked now is: “Can you actually mix a summer cleaner with a winter one?” Our Expert will has the right tip ready for you:

While making longer car journeys in the summer months, many motorists get annoyed at smeared windscreens caused by insect residues. The Problem: Very often an additive is already in use, many cleaners, however, lack the special insect dissolving power.
