We found Britemax Grime to work very well on argent colored painted cast motorcycle wheels. These type of wheels can get very dirty and greasy from brake dust and other road grime, and they can be hard to clean. We found that Grime Out worked better than any other products we’ve tried.
Like the other Metal Master/Britemax products, Grime Out is very easy to apply; simply spray it on and wipe or rinse it off. We use paper towels to lightly wipe the surface of the wheel after applying Grime Out with excellent results.
Grime Out is also good for cleaning greasy/dirty engine casings. If it is allowed to soak for a couple of minutes before rinsing, it does a good job of cleaning the grime that can accumulate around engine heads or valve covers on aluminum cast engine blocks. Other aerosol-based degreasers work faster, but they also have a very strong odor and are not biodegradable.
We created a new category called “Spray Degreaser/Wheel Cleaner” for Grime Out in our “Best in Class” list.
