We have been trying out Cragar car care detail products for our team. We have looked at the Premium FX Series. We tried the Speed Brite – Total Wheel Cleaner and the Tire Black on an NASCAR Truck and Trailer, both worked out fine and they kept up with other similar retail off the shelf products and could be considered very good second tier products for professional detailers and first tier for off the shelf automotive cleaning and detailing products for Do It Yourself car owners.
The Speed Brite total wheel cleaner worked as good as Auto Magic Brand’s EZ White whitewall cleaner on the alloy and chrome wheels, but we do not recommend it for polished aluminum Alcoa or specialty rims or on Plastic Coated wheel logo caps or wheels. By the way all these products can be further reviewed at
Cragar Spray Gloss Super Shine sounds fancy and can hold it’s own against the Meguiars brand they sell at Wal-Mart, but did not do as good against the Boat and Marine Spray Wax from Meguiars Marine Catalog. We used some on the hood of the Blitzmobile;
as well as on the hood of a passer bye who wondered who are those guys and what are they doing in that parking lot at the CES Show between seminars? We believe in Cragar’s motto for their Premium FX Series Products and that is “Superior Engineering Superior Results” and so we put their newest product the Brake Dust Barrier – Wheel Surface Protectant to work. The product worked great but we did not see the need for two products and we prefer one to do both jobs, for instance able to get into the spider web style BMW rims like on the 2002 BMW or the 3.18 BMW and remove and neutralize and clean off brake dust. Also using a pressure washer the product is not necessary for our team as the current products we use are fine. But the stuff did work well. We enjoyed it as we are moving away completely from any kind of acid to clean rims, for environmental reasons of the EPA and NPDES Permitting, but also due to possible lawsuits from workers and OSHA Standards mandated by some bureaucracy chief somewhere under some rock?
We really enjoyed the Rain Repel – Glass Treatment and found it to be nearly as good as a Hydrophobic window treatment or a coat of Rain-X although it lasted almost as long as Rain-X it is also half the price.
I hope you have enjoyed this weeks Retail Product test and Automotive Detailing Product Review for Cragar Premium FX Series Car Care Products, because it is expensive for us to go buy this stuff off the shelf at retail to bring this data to our Do It Yourself clientele.
