It's a little known fact that April is officially "National Car Care Month" but regardless of if you're aware of it or not, it's a certain fact that this year's long winter has taken its toll on your cars appearance. There's no better way to restore that shine than with our recently added SONAX car care product. Sonax is a German company that has been in the car care business since 1951! Their products reach back even further as the company spawned from a chemical manufacturer that was founded in the early 1900's! That means these guys have a lot of experience with what they do and it shows.

In addition to making superior car care products, SONAX is very heavily invested in German motorsport. They have had a long standing relationship with the DTM race series, offering sponsorship money to keep the cars we love racing around the track in exchange for a little bit of brand exposure.

While SONAX has a large product offering we have paired it down to those more common and more frequently used products for the average enthusiast. Their more popular products handle the basic cleaning and waxing, however SONAX is very well known for both their wheel cleaner and also their tire gel. The wheel cleaner is very unique in its ease of use. Using the space age looking , super badass spray bottle, you just spray on the slimer green gel (which is really satisfying) and then you wait. You watch the pretty lime green color turn into a sort of a purpleish mess as the cleaner reacts with your brake dust and other grime. This color change is how you know that it's working. You can optionally agitate and scrub your wheel (using the SONAX wheel brush) if you'd like - or you can simply just hose that darn wheel off. That's the beauty of this wheel cleaner- it's pretty aggressive and if you use it frequently it requires little to no elbow grease. The tire gel is similar to the sprays on the market however the consistency of the gel allows it to penetrate better and last longer keeping your tires looking better between washes.


Below is a timeline of how the wheel cleaner works. Start to finish in just a few minutes.


Simply spray on the lime green solution on  your dirty wheels...
