Optimum FerreX wheel cleaner 

Thought I would share my experience using the Optimum FerreX product.

The wheels on my 4Runner were in pretty rough shape, with some pretty bad baked on brake pad dust. I've tried several different products in the past and even a pressure washer to try and remove this stuff. Nothing worked at all.

I had read that FerreX did a really good job, and for around $20-$30 bucks I was hoping it would do better than the other products I've used.

After spraying the product onto the wheels, I let it sit for about 5 minutes. Then I just wiped it off with a cloth. With just this initial application, it got a good amount of the gunk off the wheels.

The next time I try it, I'm going to get a soft brissel brush to help break some of the really tough stuff off. I was pretty sure the clear coat on these wheels were just wrecked, but now after getting most of stuff off, they look pretty good again. Pretty goof for 14 year old wheels.

Total Cost: $25
