One of the worst things for your wheels to encounter is brake dust. Brake dust can eat away at your wheels and is the single most destructive thing for them. This process happens inside the wheels and can be very damaging. Brake dust is a fine powder residue created from the brake rotor wearing away the brake pads. The pads contain carbon fibers, various graphite, steel, iron, copper shavings and an acidic adhesive. It is very sticky and collects in every nook and cranny of the wheel. If allowed to sit on your wheels, the highly corrosive brake dust can pit the metal. Brake dust leaves gummy deposits that are hard to remove. Be wary of highly acidic cleaners because they can damage the finish on your wheels.
When cleaning wheels, start with the least aggressive method of cleaning, soap and water. If they need a tougher cleaner, our ERW-XL Rust Remover & Cleaner does a great job as a Wheel Cleaner that works to remove tough grime and brake dust. Paint it On - Let it Work - Rinse it Off.
