Reactive Wheel Cleaner bridges the gap between a traditional wheel cleaner and a heavy-duty fallout remover, making it suitable for regular deep cleaning and decontamination on all painted, powdercoated and lacquered wheel finishes.
Packed with powerful, deep-cleaning detergents and degreasing agents, this advanced surface cleanser attacks the harshest grime, breaking down, lifting and encapsulating potentially damaging particulates, allowing them to be safely rinsed away without scratching.
The added reactive contaminant remover in this advanced formula is designed to chemically dissolve embedded ferrous metal particles, this reaction suspends them in the solution to not only eradicate the contamination but to limit contact with the surface of the wheel when rinsing. These sharp iron particles are chiefly derived from hot brake dust and are essentially tiny pieces of metal shrapnel which embed themselves into your wheels as you drive, damaging surfaces and risking the onset of severe corrosion. This kind of contamination can only be eradicated through intense chemical removal. Reactive Wheel Cleaner solves the problem of carrying out this process on a regular basis, allowing you to decontaminate and deep-clean your wheels every time you wash your vehicle.
Reactive Wheel Cleaner is also available in 500ml bottles.
Wait for the chemical reaction - indicated by the solution turning blood red.
Ensure wheels are cool before application.
Remove loose soiling from wheels and tyres using a hose or pressure washer.

For heavy soiling agitate with a soft wheel brush or dedicated wash mitt.
Rinse thoroughly with a pressure washer or hose.
What are the best brushes to use with my wheel cleaner?
This will always depend on the concentration of soiling, what protection has been previously applied and, perhaps most importantly, the design of the wheel. In some circumstances, on lighter soiling, Imperial or Reactive Wheel Cleaner can be simply sprayed on, left to dwell for a few minutes and rinsed away. If solely applying Revolution Wheel Soap to your wheels, or when it is necessary to agitate other cleaners into your wheels, remember that the often-forgotten inner barrels are just as susceptible to corrosive contamination as the faces of your wheels, if not more. For cleaning the inner wheels, we recommend our Barrel Brush or Mini Barrel Brush, depending on the wheel design. A Hog Hair or soft bristle Detailing Brush is also useful for tackling tighter areas around wheel lips and lug nuts. Finally, we like to use a dedicated wash-mitt to finish off the whole wheel before rinsing. For the best results on the heaviest soiling, we recommend brushing in Imperial or Reactive Wheel Cleaner using a bucket containing Revolution or Lather Car Shampoo. This will add to the cleaning power of the process and aid in lubricating any grease and grime. For cleaning tyres (which can be carried out after cleaning, but before final rinsing your wheels) we recommend using a stiff brush such as our Rubber Scrubber Tyre Brush, along with our ready-to-use Tread Tyre Cleaner, or a 1:5 dilution of Verso All Purpose Cleaner.
