    Wheel car after a refurb..

    Im about to get a set of wheels refurbed . The company said they will... powder coat them ( as a primer) then spray and lacquer them and bake it.
    I want to keep these wheels looking ffresh for as long as i can ...
    Should i buy a wheel sealant such as poor boys or should i just polish and wax them ?
    I only ask as the finish will basicaly be the same as the body work will it not??

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?

    I have Planet Polish Wheel Seal & Shine for this and have been very happy with it. It's also well regarded on Detailing World. Comes in a little bottle but lasts ages as you don't need much. I guess the difference between a dedicated wheel sealant and a polish/wax is that they are designed to withstand hot brake dust.

    Planet Polish : Wheel Seal & Shine, alloy wheel polishing, wheel cleaning & alloy wheel sealant for protection from brake dust.

    No connection except as a happy customer.
