    What’s everyone using to clean these wheels and tires? Is the P& S Non acid wheel & Tire cleaner good to use

    Dr. Beasley’s Matte Wheel Cleanser. Best in the game for matte wheels. It’s also important to not use hard water if you can.

    I have an unopened bottle of it and the sealant as well for matte wheels if you’re interested!

    For everyday wheel cleaning, most any car wash soap will do just fine. Where you get into trouble is if you have disk brake pads that shed lots of brake dust and it gets baked on. Then you need a real wheel cleaner. There are any number of good wheel cleaners out there, but my personal favorite is Poor Boy's Spray & Rinse Wheel Cleaner. As for cleaning tires, just about any properly diluted All Purpose Cleaner will work just fine.

    Another big hint: Never use any wheel (or tire) cleaner on hot wheels. If you just drove your truck and the wheels are warm from brake heat, let the truck cool or soak the wheels down with lots of cold water first.

    I like P&S brake buster. I alternate knocking off the big grime with that and shine supply “wise guy” tire cleaner. I think the wise guy works better however.


    I then wash with chemical guys Meticulous Matte wash and various various size brushes.


    Dry them off, then spray and wipe Dr. Beasley's Matte Wheel Seal for protection.


    I use Meticulous Matte detail spray in between washes to keep looking good

    Ok I can understand a matte protection product but a matte cleaner?

    Chemical Guys certainly has no shame in coming up with new surface and dedicated product categories.

    I use the Dr Beasley’s too. I applied the matte wheel seal when my wheels were new last spring and water would still bead at the end of the summer. It makes them very easy to clean too. Just took them out of the shed and swapped them with my winter wheels/tires yesterday and the finish is just like new. Except my gf dropped one of the lug nuts and chipped one of the wheels. At least she likes to help though. Haha.
