            so i need to use one of the above then for the wheels as i have been paying loads of attention to bodywork and forgetting the wheels, also is there a product which removes tiny scratches on alloys too

                Dargy sorry but this is acidic and will eat into wheel if any chips and possible milking!!!!

                This is really to be used on heavily pitted wheels and not everyday use....

                You want as just said megs apc diluted 4:1 and also sprayed into arches before a wash as will eat away the dirt nicely.........

                I would REALLY...................................... recommend one of these wheel brushes...
                Yes i know they are not cheap and yes they look like a drumstick but NO OTHER wheel brush can reach to backs of wheels like these!!!!!!

                Just buy the large one as i have zymol wheel brush and all megs range and this is fantastic.......

                I would not be without it!!!!

                See it in my detail!!!!!

                  Surely if you dilute it you will have no problems.

                        U should have just said that it was acidic but u would of disposed of it 4 me. Seriously though i'd be grateful if anyone does no if its acidic if they'd let me no.

                            The NXT Metal All Metal Polish is exactly that a polish. It contains abrasives to remove dirt, grime and marring from metal surfaces, do not use on your alloys these are coated and you could induce scratches. Use mild car polish on wheels after cleaning (and only if necessary) and wax/seal them as normal :wink:
