Ez Does It
Mothers released a revolutionary new spray-on, hose-off cleaner that is formulated to quickly and easily clean both wheels and tires. Its foaming action clings to the surface while its advanced chemistry safely penetrates, dissolves, and suspends brake dust and grime so it can easily be rinsed away. Do-it-yourselfers are often confused about which wheel cleaner to use, but Mothers has made the choice easy. The Foaming All Wheel & Tire Cleaner is non-acidic and safe for all factory-equipment aluminum alloy or steel wheels and hubcaps on every make and model, including chromed, color coated, clearcoated, and more. Mothers products are available at fine automotive retailers

No matter what the tubing project requires, Classic Tube has a sturdy, accurate, and correct size bender to fit your needs. This Classic Tube bender is calibrated to show 0 degrees through 180 degrees right- or left-hand bends, and features a wide hook that grips the tube securely. This bender has an open side design, which can slip over the tube during any point in the bending process. This creates smooth, tight radius bends up to 180 degrees with minimal effort. Swivel handle tube benders can be repositioned midway through the bend for compound angles with no scoring or flattening of the tubing.
