    Wheel protection

    Just got these bad boys for the smart. 17" diamond cut look stunning but I'm worried about the salt eating away at them. What products would you advise to protect them and keep them looking fresh?

    Poorboys wheel sealant, great stuff that lasts for ages

    Also gives a great shine to the alloy as well

    Oooo you'll have fun with them!

    Ideally get them back off clean they shouldnt need anything too abrasive, then iron x and considering they have ssoooooooooooooo many spokes get some Gtechniq C5 on them.

    We don't stock this brand, it is expensive for a small bottle however it will last ages and make your maintenance much easier which at the end of the day is an important consideration

    Wheels are very nice mate...

    As Jen Above says Gtechniq C5 or nanolex would probably offer the best protection looking at around 12 months per application. Its £30 for 15ml i used 3/4 of a bottle on these you would likley use the bottle with those multi spokes.

    I done my partners A1 wheels she done the cleaning i done the application... Heres a few photos these wheels only had 1 day of use from brand new so the pic shows how contaminated they were.
