Wheelmuck+ is designed to work on brake dust and iron contamination, if the surface is greasy or full of dirt or has possible overspray from tyre shine products then use one of our other Motomuck products, or just give it a mild agitation.

Only apply to cool surface. Test on small hidden spot first to ensure compatibility with surface, and other possible automotive products that might be present on the surface.


Wheelmuck + undergoes a colour change from yellow to red as a reaction occurs to dislodge the brake dust iron contaminants, enabling it to be washed away with water:

    • Sprays on Yellow, if no change then no brake dust contaminants, or possibly ceramic pad dust.
  • RED
    • Turns Red as reaction starts.
    • Turns Purple when reaction is well underway.
    • Turns Dark Purple when reaction is almost complete. Rinse off just before next step.
    • If it turns Brown, reaction has started reversing. A quick spray on BROWN spots with WHEELMUCK+ before rinsing off will sort this.


NB: It is recommended to only do one or two wheels at a time.

For ceramic pad dust, dirt, grease or tyre silicone overspray a slight agitation with a soft brush is necessary.


  • Adjust nozzle on applicator to a fine spray position.
  • Spray evenly on cool, dry wheel.


  • Allow to stay on for 2-3 minutes. Wheelmuck+ changes from yellow to red to purple as reaction occurs.
  • If any areas have dried and turned brown, do a quick recoat to those areas just prior to rinsing off.


  • Rinse off with a sharp jet of water from hose or pressure washer.
  • Reapply and agitate with soft brush if necessary.


  • Older style wheel balancing weights with metal clips. Older corroded clips will get tarnished.
  • Zinc or Cadmium plated surfaces- oxidation can occur
  • Don’t use on rims that are in bad condition or damaged.
  • Driveway oxidation stains- hose off after application to clean. If not then stain will disappear in a couple weeks.
