2 spritz into a sponge takes care of one tire, so 8 spritz, lasts a long time. I go thru rim cleaner quicker tho

Well if you have chrome wheels like I do you can try invisible glass
glass cleaner. It works great for me.

No, I got silver wheels. The windex did work. Still not as good as the meguirs but it worked.
