One rule of thumb for safe use, never use any product while the wheels are hot or warm. Always apply when stone cold.

Also, if possible don't use acidic cleaners. Alkaline ones are much better to keep the lacquer finish.

How did you find the Hot Rims spray, whiteDevil? I saw on another thread that you've also used the Valet Pro Bilberry wheel cleaner. Which one did you prefer?

Thanks.
