    I am looking for a new wheel cleaner and i am leaning towards Valet Pro Bilberry Wheel Cleaner

    I know @Singvogel uses bilberry does anybody else use this product as well ?

    summer wheels have KKD R-Evolve ceramic on them and all they need is a blast of snow foam agitated with a brush or a wash over with shampoo and a wash mitt and a wheel woolie into the barrels and around once a month i have been hitting them with a spray of diluted smart wheels which is now all but gone

    my winter wheels only had a coat of Collinite 845 Wax on them and they take a lot more cleaning so the project for this summer will be a good clean and a couple of coats of ceramic on the winters

    is billberry a good go to wheel cleaner ?

    Yes :D

    Works like acid ones but doesn't kill your wheels and centre caps

    I prefer the Bilt Hamber wheel cleaner, usually the 5 litre bottle lasts six months between two cars washed around once a fortnight and one washed every 8 weeks or so.

    Is it good for coated wheels - won't strip the ceramic coatings?

    My summer wheels are coated with KKD R-Evolve ceramic an i have bought and will use bilberry on the ceramic coating, the blurb says Bilberry Safe Wheel Cleaner is safe to use on all wheel types, the ceramic is quite a hard coating so it should not degrade like a wax would with use of a alkaline wheel cleaner

    So i finally got some Bilberry wheel cleaner and all i can say is wow. So much better than shampoo and mitt alone. Lovely smell is a bonus. It's diluted 1:10 and in a spray bottle as i keep my alloys super clean anyway

    @Kev2005

    I have never used the Sonax wheel cleaner you mention, but the product that you have i would not hesitate to use it and the age of the product wouldnt worry me

    what alloys have to got on your car are the a basic alloy all the same colour or a diamond cut alloy with polished faces
