S100 Wheel Cleaner – Product Review

S100 Wheel Cleaner

Unless you live under a rock you know S100 products are great for cleaning your motorcycle. I’m not a chome and spoke wheel guy, I’m more practical and go for the tubeless alloy wheels. Diana and I ride Dyna’s with almost the same wheels. Neither of us are big on cleaning our bikes but when we do we start with S100 products. Cleaning the brake dust and road grime off the wheels seems like a job in itself. That’s where S100 Wheel Cleaner comes in. It’s a high performance gel that you spray on, wait a little bit and then spray off with a water hose. I scrub the wheels with the scrubbing side of a dish washing sponge before the rinse and then again after the rinse and rinse again. I do this until I’m satisfied. S100 Products usually require extra rinsing off to make sure the washing agents have completely washed away along with the road grime.

I have practically ruined my wheels by not cleaning them enough. It seems like the road grime and brake dust are permanently attached to the exposed unpainted unpowder coated alloy of the wheel. I’m trying to take care of Diana’s wheels a little better; especially since her wheels are 100% exposed alloy. My Low Rider came with similar wheels but have a smooth finish and black powder coating on the mag spokes which makes cleaning a lot easier. Not only did the Super Glide come with no powder coating on the wheels, but Harley-Davidson gave it a textured finish which is much more difficult to clean. Another one of those jokes that H-D plays on us that I don’t get.

The S100 Wheel Cleaner is good stuff for alloy wheels.
