Default warning! about Armor All wheel cleaner

i used armor all wheel cleaner on my wheels on my car...sprayed it on...housed it off...then about 3 months later one of the valve stems blew the center out of it...took i took the wheel to the goodyear place...had it replaced...then about 3 weeks later...2 more did the same...i thought it was odd..soo i had those two and the last and final "old" valve stem replaced....i thought maybe the place just got a bad batch of valve stems at the time i got new tires...until 4 months later the valve stems did the exact same thing a seperate time....

i finally asked the guy if this is a common thing with these wheels....and he asked if i had used wheel cleaner....and i told him i had...and he said that Mainly the armor all brand would eat the glue that holds the center of the valve stem in and soften the rubber around it & cause them to blow the center of it out...below is a picture of one of the centers that blew out of my wheel...


just a heads up for anyone out there using it




the end with the valve core and cap is in my hand

Best way to stay safe, is using nothing at all besides water, car wash soap, and elbow grease.
