    yeah, you can't dilute it as its a solvent. best way to use Autosmart Tardis or AutoGlym Tar Remover is to spray it on rather than dap it on with a cloth.

    Good job there, I need to take all my wheels off and clean, polish and wax them but I never feel I will put them back on tight enough, then comes wheel wobble.... Bad times!

    Good stuff. I have used the same combo and great results also.

    I have changed my combo now though to Espuma Revolution,Jeffs Prime Strong,Tardis (always neat).... but the purpose of my post is the revelation I found when using CarPro (aquartz) IronX, may even go as far as miracle product of 2010/2011.
    This stuff is simply amazing on wheels (and body/glass) and brings wheels up spotless,and cuts doen the time dramatically to get same results...its my chemical clay bar and brake dust remover of choice now... I will post up some pics of it in action if you havent heard of it.
    ....Its all in the Detail

    Yes, Tardis is 'TarDisolver' so yes, it ia a tar remover. Spray on or brush on and leave to dwell, then agitate with a brush or a Microsofibre, you may need to re-apply and let soak. Along with a Claybar and Tardis, CarPro IronX is also great for surface decomtamination and heavy brake dust, its like a chemical clay bar and will remove iron filings and fallout etc.

    Rather than me write an essay and re-invent information already available take a look here...

    Hope that helps
