Well, I sent an email to Poorboys World asking about the acid and safety etc...

Most people only use it full strength if their wheels are in poor condition. People with hard to clean wheels will usually use Wheel Sealant after cleaning and polishing and not need the *&R after the initial cleaning.
Some with just hard to clean wheels, will use it diluted as their maintenance without any harm to the wheels.

That means that PB *&R is NOT citric acid based, for those wondering.

Meg'* WB ruined my front wheels, but it may have been my fault. I added a bit more water to the concentrate than they recommended, so I left it on for about a minute (I think they warn no longer than 30 seconds). Now cleaning my wheels is a PAIN IN THE *** because the clearcoat has a very rough surface to it, and everything kind of gets trapped in there. Like I said, it may have been my fault, but I'm afraid to go near my car with that stuff.

Now plastic hubcaps it works great. I simply spray i on my mom'* 05 town and country and my future mom-inlaws 99 mystique, and the year and a half of brake dust just melts right off with a power washer.

I don't think I would want to use anything that said not to let it sit for more than 30 seconds.

I checked and the product I use is Eagle 1 A2Z. It has always worked well for me. I spray it on and use an old cotton mitt or sponge to agitate then hose off.

Never apply any wheel cleaner to a hot wheel or tire..

What I use as a wheel cleaner is the "General Cleaner" from work undiluted. (I work at Domnio'* Pizza). I have NEVER gotten a better shine no matter what I have used
