    "The wheel and tire cleaner will work if you are going to put in a lot of work in scrubbing it. Just spraying the liquid on the wheel and it hosing it will do nothing for you. You gotta scrub it to get the dirt out. Car washes may also not even work. "

    "Calling this thing dragon blood is cute especially with the pink liquid. This is also one of the alloy wheel cleaners I use that are safe on my paint finish. Got to deduct a star since you will need plenty of bloody cleaner to clean all four tires and the price is a bit much. "

    "I am not seeing the cleaner latch on to the grim on my wheels and melting it so that I can easily remove it when I follow the recommended 1:5 cleaner to water. I upped the cleaner to water ratio and saw an improvement. Taking the price in mind, the cleaner is not great but not bad too. "
