Default Pinnacle Advanced Wheel Cleaner Review

First of all, thank you pinnacle for the great product give aways.

As the third place winner of the latest drawing it's my pleasure to present my review of the Advanced wheel cleaner Concentrate from Pinnacle.
I was going to clean my wheels, but they were just not that dirty. I wanted to give the cleaner a good challenge so I waited for a donor car to help out.
Thank you SGGBLACK for the use of your wheels.
So, here we go. I did all four wheels but only took pics of the "best"(worst) looking one.
These are before anything was done.

After a quick rinse with water.

Applied the cleaner and let it soak.

Agitated with my favorite wheel brush.

Rinsed off the residue.

AS you can see, there is still some grime left on the wheels. A good amount has been removed at this point and I really didn't expect everything to come off the first time through. These wheels were in admittedly rough shape. I doubt if they were ever removed from the vehicle and cleaned since new.

I decided to give it one more shot before I moved on to the rest of the wheels.
So here we go again.

Sprayed with cleaner.

Agitated and rinsed a final time.

So, as you can see, even after two washings the wheels are not completely cleaned. But as stated earlier, they were in pretty bad shape to begin with. I think with a little more aggressive scrubbing the remaining grime would come off eventually.

Over all I think it did a pretty good job of removing years of baked on brake dust and road grime. With regular use this would be a good tool in your bag to keep your wheels looking their best.

Default Photos missing

My pics in the previous post seem to have disappeared. I had thumbnails and pics at first. Then just a link to the pics. Now nothing.

Perhaps they were too large for the site. I will try re-posting later. Maybe I will link from another site.

The pictures appear to be there. Just no thumbnails for some reason.

Fixed. Resized pictures to fit this websites size requirements.
