P21s wheel gel - which size?

I saw that DI is having a sale on this today, and I'm stoked to finally try it. I am not sure if I should go for 500mL or 1000mL though. Is this a product I'm supposed to use weekly, or is it something I would reserve for cases of hard to clean rims? Is it something that needs to be applied liberally, or does a little go a long way? Obviously these would affect my decision on which size to buy.

Thanks in advance!

Personally, I use it to clean the wheels if they become very dirty or neglected. For regular maintenance, your best bet is to just use soap and water, especially if you protect them with something like Poorboy's World Wheel Sealant.

I would say that I do use a fair amount of the wheel gel each time I use it though, 500ml does not give you too many uses.

Hope that helps!

George

I'd go for the 1000mL and a spray bottle, that way you can dilute it a bit. It's strong stuff, so diluted P21s can work wonders too.

I only use it for really nasty wheels though. Regular soap/water and some PB Wheel Sealant does the job perfectly for my own car.
