    Alloy Wheel Protector

    Hi,
    Can someone recommend a good product for protecting my alloy wheels from brake dust once cleaned that makes cleaning easier the next time round.
    I have tried various off the shelf sprays but what is the wax products available?
    Thanks
    Mike

    I use Planet Polish Wheel Seal & Shine which works well. I've also used Gtechniq C2V3 spray sealant which was quick and easy.

    This stuff is the Daddy of wheel sealants Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour - Clean Your Car

    It should last 8-12 months.
    Also don't forget to use a non acidic Wheel cleaner or warm soapy water to prevent stripping the sealant off

    Yeah that is the top-of-the-range stuff but not for Joe Bloggs that likes to do a quick detail and thats it. If your prepared to learn how to use it then great stuff it is.........get it wrong and you waste it as its like a glass coating for your wheels and since doing glass coatings its a massive learning curve.

    Personally I would go for a wheel sealant such as Bilberry wheel wax or Poorboys Wheel Sealant ........easy to put on and simple to buff off.
