Okay, I tried their wheel cleaner/maintenance kit today. The three finger'ed sponge is GREAT! If you have Alpina wheels (Vince? Kaz?) or highly detailed wheels like the BMW Style 42 Cross spoke/Cross spoke composite wheels, these will save you a lot of time and energy. Just slip it on to your finger, spray some Griot's wheel cleaner and scrub away at your wheels. Cleans up with warm water. Very nicely designed.

Griot's Garage Wheel cleaner is pretty good...I can't give it glowing reviews just yet, because my wheels were clean to start with...the Pagid pads give off very little brake dust and the style 71 wheels are easy to clean to start with. But cleaning the wheel is literally spray, wait, hose, done. I just sprayed and hosed on one wheel and on another I used the sponge...The results are very close. The sponged one is slightly cleaner because I was able to get to the small crease between the spokes and the rim.

Rubber and Vinyl thoughts are a little mixed. It worked well on the tires but not nearly as well as Meguire's Endurance shine. On the interior vinyl parts it initially brought out a nice shine...It's still there but I don't know how long it'll last. It does make the black vinyl pieces look clean and nice, but it's not better than say, Armor All or Vinylex, but it certainly costs more.
