Eco Wheel Cleaner or regular Wheel Cleaner for Sealed Wheels Maintenance Washes

Question

So I'll have the wheels on my C7Z/ZL1/427 etc. sealed with likely H2O GG or a competitors touchless silica spray. Anyways, I'm wondering about picking up Eco Wheel Cleaner.  Reason being, in a video Adam shows how the Wheel Cleaner eats off protection (Sealant/Wax) when used as a paint decon, and I'm guessing it will do the same thing on wheels. I would want something that would help out with dirt/grime but not strip the sealant off.  Also, current Wheel Cleaner's scent is unpleasant.  Win-win by switching to eWC (Preserve Sealants + Better smell)? 

 

Anyone have any experience?

The Eco Wheel Cleaner is a gentler wheel cleaner that doesn't have the iron dissolving ability of the regular wheel cleaner.  For regular maintenance, it's a great product.  It reminds me of the old "Green Wheel Cleaner." If you're on top of regular washes and such, the wheels shouldn't get too horrible to the point they need to be decontaminated but a few times a year.  And when you do, you'll want to add some protection back on.

 

That being said, the regular wheel cleaner will NOT take a coating off.

I use wash & wax in a spray bottle for wheels.  It cleans the wheels and adds a bit of protection every wash.

How much do you dilute the wash & wax? Does it remove/lift grime better if stronger/less dilution? I need to start doing this. Right now I just waterless wash on the wheels.

I dilute it a 2 oz to 2 gallons.  When I mix up a bucket for cleaning the truck I fill/refill my 32 oz. spray bottle before beginning the wash.
