AMMO Plum Wheel Cleaner Review | Is It Worth It? | FocusOnDetailing

AMMO Plum Wheel Cleaner Review | Is It Worth It? | FocusOnDetailing
Hey everyone! First of all sorry for the late upload. School is coming to an end, the work is compounding and I really have been wanting to focus on that.
This video was created from a recommendation in the comment section. I thought it was a good idea but needed to allow some time for postage as well. It only took around 2 weeks to get here from America. It’s not exactly cheap to bring chemicals from there but I know from experience that AMMO is a great product.
AMMO Plum cost around $76 in total so I really wanted it to doing an awesome job of cleaning rims. When filming this it was actually the first time I had tested it properly so my interest in seeing how it works would be at same level (hopefully) as anyone that clicked on this video.
I hope you enjoy/enjoyed this upload
Don’t forget to like, comment and subscribe
Thanks heaps!

    For everyone understandably saying that the price of AMMO Plum is a little over the top I have to explain that it was the shipping that made it so costly. I wouldn't go out of my way to say that any product isn't worth it due to me having to buy it and get it sent to Australia. The price is $20 US and it did an awesome job of cleaning up my wheels. I was really happy with it and would recommend it highly!

    In my case I don't believe it would be a wise choice to be using it constantly on customer's cars as there are many other options out there that aren't as pricey but you shouldn't really have to apply a wheel cleaner to your wheels too often. Cleaning them once every now and then with a specific cleaner should help loosen up the heavy build of grime and other mess but after that you should be able to clean up your wheels with ease after a normal weekly wash. Thanks for the comment!

    Seems a lot of extra stuff aside from Plum was used. I'd like to see Plum on its own. I'd worry more about proper footwear than gloves under a jacked car.

    As another Aussie who is a passionate Ammo user. I have the full range, it’s better to build in bulk. As it’s a flat ship rate. Nice video bud.

    Personally a big fan of the ammo wheel cleaner. Although my wheels have (through years of neglect) collected lots of dark spots of which the wheel cleaner can't remove. You mention in the video that it would require "much more work" to remove these black spots. But how exactly, are you supposed to use an old clay bar, or some kind of acid?

  8. azfarmukmin

    azfarmukminپیش 3 ماه

    You can use a clay bar and polish / 2-step for your rims. I have done that for a customer's rims just prior to getting them coated.

    Great video again. Just be warned using imported waxes, polishes, wheel cleaners, etc as many of the chemicals used will cause long term damage to both the wheels coating, that being paint, clear over, chrome, plating, as any small scratch or defect that has exposed either the primer or the bare substrate will allow product to penetratie deep, via osmosis , under the coating and will eventually cause delamination from the substrate, and secondly, depending on the porosity of the metal used in manufactoring, embedded within the metal itself, this cause deep corrosion issues. The same processes occurs with paint but on a much larger scale. Carefully read the contents than find the MSDS certification, then research what the long and short term effects of continual or partial use are. The wheel cleaner used here contains very high concentrations of high ph acids and salts. Just some good advice for everyone.

    What did you expect? Shipping from anywhere outside your country is going to be expensive for almost everyone everywhere! These products are some of the best engineering on the market, and in my opinion WELL worth the money. Once you use it the first time, you need ALOT less product. The cost is on point for effort, market, and performance.

    I like Larry, he's a cool guy that's passionate about cars but good god either his products don't last long or he's just super anal. In his video about his friends blue M3, his cleaning regimen is crazy. Guy actually recommended to wax every single month, that's insane. Shit, I wax my car with Dodo Juice Supernatural once a year and use a spray wax every 2nd wash. I couldn't be bothered sampling products anymore so I've stuck with OPT as my only detailing products as they've got top notch products and are reasonably priced.

    Rim cleaner cleans rims in the year 2017 - who would have thought? The chemistry behind it isn't rocket science, after all. So it would have been more interesting to know the range of application, e.g. is it intended for coated rims, etc... pH range, bla-bla... not every "good" rim cleaner is good for all rims.

    I think the other part to it is simply cleaning them more often so you're then not in a situation where things get perm caked on. Nice video! I've only used the chemical guys diablo + wheel "woolies" brushes, works fine, but there's still room for improvement

  64. FocusOnDetailing

    Thanks for the comment! That's going to be the plan from now on. I'll be taking them all off more often now to give them a real good clean to prevent all that caked on stuff. Yeah I've heard about Diablo and seems pretty decent. I now use Bowden's Wheel Cleaner too which does a good job.

    Try looking into Gyeon Iron, you may have a easier time getting it there. I think its an awesome product. I used it with a pressure washer on wheels that had not been really cleaned in months. Gyeon Iron and a few mins of time, then hit it with pressure washer they were done. I did not take off the wheel and clean but the barrel was clean from what I could access from outside the car. That being said it is not my every day wheel cleaner. I use CG Diablo since its cheaper and I can cut it with water. If the car is cleaned regularly, thats all I use. If i get a car that is just nasty I use Gyeon Iron. I am not sure how accessible it is in Aus. but in the US its not the easiest to find. Its a UK company but from the stuff I have used I was seriously impressed.

  72. FocusOnDetailing

    FocusOnDetailingپیش 2 سال

    Just checked out that link then and it looks like it's a great product! I'm open to trying out new detailing gear so I just might have to give this stuff a go! I understand where you're coming from. It is a little expensive but I think people living in America wouldn't have to worry too much as there's no need for the costly shipping. Thanks for the comments

  73. FocusOnDetailing

    FocusOnDetailingپیش 2 سال

    Thanks for the comment mate! I've been looking at Gyeon Iron and I've noticed quite a few detailers use it (it's rare for detailers to agree on a product being really good haha). There's an Aussie page called 'Car Care Products' that will make things a little more accessible I believe, as products from overseas can be a little pricey once I take into account shipping. If you think it's a fairly decent product then I'll have to invest in some I think as it's always good to have a few wheel cleaners and I don't usually use AMMO Wheel cleaner on all cars, again due to costs.

    Try Meguiar's Wheel Brightener if you don't have any coatings or waxes on your wheels. You don't have to wait minutes for it to work. It works right right away and you probably won't have to agitate. Paying that much for Plum is not worth it.

    The Americans have tons of sources of videos on products readily available to them. There is very little content for the Australian audience that covers the range of products that we have available locally. I also see no point in using a wheel cleaner if you need to get in there and agitate, might was well use something milder as the mechanical action is doing most of the work. At least protect the wheel with something after going to all that effort, maybe try out the fusso on it.

  79. FocusOnDetailing

    You're not wrong, it is pretty expensive but because most of my viewers are American's I have to take that into consideration and in the US it only costs $20.

    Try the Sonax wheel cleaner... i own a BMW m3, the wheels are constantly covered in brake dust after track days or long drives, it cleans all of it off in no time, it is far less expensive and made in Germany so shipping cost will be far less expensive.

    Please get a proper jack and put SOMETHING under the car. Those scissor jacks are renowned for failing randomly and almost killing people. I have been on the Ford Forums for years and seen so many terribly close calls posted on there from people having them fail while taking wheels on and off. Repco often does a 40% off on their big mechanic sized jack that not only lifts high but also quickly and has a fairly low height when lowered making it nice and friendly for lowered vehicles (altho there are lower ones now if you shop around) It was only a few years ago a well known VH commodore owner was found deceased in his shed as his car fell on him while working in the wheel well area. Otherwise great video. Perhaps my only criticism is at the end when making your decision and even right through the video you could try and offer what other products you are comparing the product to so we get an understanding of how it performs.

    Also good to note if you are cleaning your wheels regularly, just use soap and water. I only use such heavy duty cleaners once in a few months to remove any residual iron dust stuck in the rims. For cost reasons and to make sure the rims dont get too much contact with those chemicals.

  104. Taco

    Tacoپیش 2 سال

    Most iron remover are not overly acidic/alkaline. If you are afraid of pH damage, do take a look at the MSDS of the product. Reputable brands such as sonax/liquimoly and many others do have online MSDS. Usually for iron remover with the colour change feature uses the active ingredient sodium mercaptoacetate, and have a pH range of roughly 7-9 which is alkaline, but not overly so. Regardless of pH, anything as strong as iron removers, acid etc shouldnt be left to dry on the wheels. Do what you gotta do with these heavy duty stuff and rinse the hell off the wheels quickly.

  105. Ken Lawton

    Matthew Reimer There is no acid in an iron remover, it relies on chemical reaction and it works well. One step in car decontamination is to spray iron x over the entire car to remove iron particles.. ... safe as houses and again not acid based at all otherwise you wouldn't do it, not for the clear coats sake but for the plastic trims sake.. I also use Meguires wheel brightener, now that is acid based but designed for clear coated wheels. Think about it, clear coat is a type of plastic and wheel brightener comes in a plastic bottle. You can use it on anything clear coated and it works extremely well. Don't be afraid of products that are acid based for your car, they've been designed for a specific purpose. Can't go wrong if you follow the manufacturers instructions.

    Thank you! I used After Effects for the smoke effect with the logo then compiled it together with other clips using Premier Pro. Thanks for the comment

    Nice to see you back Tim. That wheel cleaner is expensive but did do a good job which it should for the price. But as for myself no I won't be importing it and I won't tell you what I use to clean my wheels inside and out as it may detract from that wheel cleaner. An old tooth brush is good but it's hard to use in recessed areas. Perhaps an old but clean small paint brush and just keep it for that. I once hear someone say that specialised cleaners or any specialised tool will cost two to three times as much as a standard tool which will do the job equally well. I've been thinking of using a water based degreaser so that I can thin it right down. I had a look in Super Cheap Auto and they had multi purpose degreasers in 5 litre plastic bottles for over $60. I took note of the ingredients and then had a look in Bunnings in their cleaning isle. They had a water based degreaser with the same ingredients which came in a 5 litre plastic bottle and could be thinned right down for $15. Both degreasers recommended that they be used on car and motorbike engines, garage floors and for getting rid of general dirt and grime off hard surfaces. I wouldn't use it to wash a car's body work. No. But for the insides of wheels and wheel arches, yes.

    Yeah finally got around to creating this video, just been a little busy with other work plus coming up to assessment time so that's sort of taken priority. I'm hoping to be a little more active on IRgos soon. That's something that I do use, a clean paintbrush purely for rims (it quickly came up in this video). Yeah I can't justify paying too much for specialised brushes when what I have seems to be doing the trick but a large wheel woolie would be pretty handy to help reach the inside of the wheel when I don't need to take them off completely. Haha woah bit of a price difference there! I guess that's why it's always good to shop around first before diving into the first product that you find. If they are able to achieve similar results I wouldn't bother with the expensive one unless it can offer something more. I think it might just come down to paying for the name, one might be better quality than the other but Bunnings sounds like the go for a degreaser.
