    Hi just bought some Bilbury wheel cleaner for my A1 18" rotors. Can anyone offer sone advice on what concentrate to use. As the wheels are diamond cut I dont want to damage the alloy.

    Cheers

    I use 10:1 on the rotors on the RS with no issues.

    I use it neat.Its very gentle stuff, only really effective if the wheel has had some sort of protection applied though, like poorboys wax.Dont forget to use Iron x which is a great cleaner too

    I wouldn't recommend continual use of neat Bilberry as it can affect the paint on the calipers.

    I generally use a dilution rate of 4:1.

    It is good to fully clean, decontaminate and then seal the alloys as it does make maintenance cleaning much easier and faster
