Surf City Garage Code Red Active Wheel Cleaner, 24 oz. is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty amazing My car (e46 330Ci) has really dirty brakes. I think this is true of most BMWs. The dust cakes on the wheels, which are not a very clean-friendly shape. Code Red wheel cleaner does an amazing job of getting the wheels almost clean. I just use a wheel detailing mitt after the initial rinse and they look great. One wheels with fewer facets, or with less dusty brakes, I'll bet this stuff would be a completely hands-free solution. There are a few cons: It smells like a hair salon, kinda like the chemicals that they use when perming hair. It's not cheap, and I get only three complete wheel cleanings per bottle (this would probably be different with smoother wheels). I worry a bit about the environmental impact of whatever is in it. It doesn't seem to kill grass, but I still have misgivings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed Since I've liked the other Surf City products, I decided to try this one since the Black Magic wheel cleaner was out of stock. While it does turn colors like it says on the bottle, my wheels didn't look good. For what I paid , I would have expected this to be the greatest wheel cleaner ever. I'm extremely disappointed.
