    Wheel Sealant

    Hi guys, as the cold weathers coming I want something to put on my alloys to try and protect them a bit & I don't have enough money to buy some winter wheels sadly.

    The alloys are Matte/Satin black. They are here > Calibre Rapide (Matt Black) Alloy Wheels (Alloys) - Rimstyle.com



    I aren't the biggest fan of these alloys but they came with the car when I purchased it so I aren't going to complain as I think they look better than standard S line ones anyway. So what would you experts recommend to stop them getting ruined through the winter?

    Any help much appreciated, thanks.

    As JoJo said......Bilberry wheel sealant (which I stock too) or have a look at SlickRims.......expensive but going by the reviews well worth it as you only need to seal them once and thats it done.

    Bilberry wheel wax lasts quite a while but all dependant on how often you wash your car really. Same as SlickRims too. Look for about afew months and then re-apply.

    Got round to doing them at the weekend! :D Just wish I bought some decent wheel cleaning products and some Iron X before hand, didn't realise how dirty they were before I took them off to give them a decent clean!

    If I put Iron X on the now will it get rid of the sealant?

    Some photos during and after.







    Thought that space saver wheel looked like a bike wheel! ;D

    IronX mostly definitely will affect your sealant.

    Thou after you have IronX at least the sealant will adhere to the surface a lot better and last longer. As its bonding with a cleaner surface.

    Good point but it means resealing them!

    Might get some in a month or two and re do them.
