I used SCRUBBING BUBBLES bathroom cleaner on my rims...

A guy I work with told me to try it, WOW, they look amazing. In the ingredients, it shows 99.78% inert ingredients, and .11% ammonium chlorides, and .11% dimethyl benzyl ammonium chlorides.

I dont know what this stuff is, but it shined my rims up real good, and with a fresh lemony sent too

Do you mix yours with KY, also? It works much better that way.

Sounds like a winner to me.Did you have to scrub it or just spray on rinse off.Only thing i'd be concerned about is leaving some residue on the aluminum that could tarnish or damage it.

I just sprayed it on and wiped it right off. I just one side on the front and a spot on the back. Im going to do the whole thing tomarrow. It made it shine in a way I didnt think they were able to shine, considering its not polished. It got rid of the water spots and just left a clean shine. Very nice indeed.

ammonium chlorides works in the short run but will damage the rims in the long run .. Any type of ammonia based product will cause damage to aluminium.. Only use petrolem based products when cleaning aluminium. Learned this quite a while ago on my trailer wheels.. At 650 a pop and with 10 of them on my tractor and trailer, it can be an expensive learning tool..

Ask any person that buff's or finishes aluminium out for a living.. There is a place in Florence SC that does aluminium, I think the name is prime-cut.. They cut and polish aluminium and stainless steel..
