    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.

    hi guys, cleaned my car last week properly and found lots of black tar spots on my wheel which were very hard to remove? are you sayin Tardis will get rid of this? or tar remover?

    thanks in advance

    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
