It is safe to use bloody rim on brake disc and caliper ? I know it is for rims but while applying it some of this end up on brake disc and caliper. Do you prefer to cover this elements ?

It'll be fine, just rinse it off. The brakes get exposed to much worse than a bit of wheel cleaner.

Ok. I heard that bloody rim can cause rust faster.

I don't know about your particular product, but a lot of these chemicals can accelerate rusting on the surface of unpainted metals such as the brake calipers .


Those iron X fall out remover products are great to use once in a while, but if you clean your wheels often then just regular car shampoo and elbow grease is safest for long term condition of the painted wheels.
