How To Clean Painted Alloy Wheels – Chemical Guys DeCon Pro


Hey guys! Today I’m going to show you how to decontaminate painted wheels. I’m going to use Decon, Mr.Pink, and an assorted amount of brushes here. So first, I’m going to prep my bucket. I’ve got my brushes set up here. I’m going to take an ounce of Mr.Pink. Squirt it in my bucket that has 5 ounces of water in it. Then I’m going to put my Dirt Trap in here. Push it all the way to the bottom. And now I’m just going to put my brushes in there. So they can get foam and water absorbed. Now I’m going to spray the surface using Decon. Decon is an iron remover. So as I’m spraying it on here, it’s attaching itself to all the dirt, grime, and iron. And it’s pulling it away from the rim. So I’m going to let this sit. It should turn purple once it’s pulled off all the iron, if not, I’m just going to start rinsing and scrubbing it off. So I let this sit here for a few moments. Obviously it’s not turning purple. It’s not too uncommon with cars like this because they don’t have a lot of iron in the brake pads. But it is taking off a lot of the dirt and grime here. I’m just going to grab one of my brushes and start cleaning out the barrel of the rim and then the face. I’m going to start with the Concours Wheel Brush over here. So this is the green soft flag tip brush. Safe for the face of the rim here. It won’t scratch up anything but it’s also strong enough pull off all the brake dust and grime that’s been sitting on here. This brush is made up out of a plastic base which is safe for the painted rims. It’s not going to scratch or damage anything. So it’s okay to knock it up against the surface here. Now using the Best Detailing Brush I’m going to get into the intricate areas like the lug nuts and in between these spokes here. Also made out of plastic construction, so if it bangs up against the surface of the rim, it’s not going to scratch anything. It won’t harm the wheel in anyway. And then the last step is going to be to clean out the tire here. I’m using the blue stiffy brush. Which is a strong plastic bristle. Which is going to be able to scrub off any old dressings or tire debris; things off the road, things like that. Also made of strong plastic material, so if it does bang against the rim or the bodywork it’s not going to scratch or harm it. Final step here is to wipe off any excess water or soap off the tire and the rim, and off the paintwork here. There you have it. This tire and rim is squeaky clean and ready to go.

  2. Why didn't you rinse after the a "decon" spray? You're just rubbing that dirt back into the rim with those brushes…
