Best wax/sealant for wheels

Post by Zoomer » Tue May 08, 2018 7:49 pm

Guys I am looking for something to help keep my wheels easy to clean. At the moment I have only ever use Autoglym alloy where protector , which is a spray , and probably mainly silicone, but there must be something better ?

Many thanks :thumbsup:

I have used SwissVax Autobahn on many car wheels and I regard it as the best wheel wax. It typically lasts 4 months on a daily driver. I always remove the wheels to clean and polish before applying the wax. High-end sealants might be better, but cost a lot more.

Another vote for FK1000P its cheap easy to apply and works, ask the same question on Detailing World and you'll get loads of votes for FK1000p

I agree Gtechniq C5 is very good but it's expensive and not as easy to apply.
But if the OP dosent mind the expense, it's certainly worth considering for the longevity

I used the gtechniq C5 on my alloys about 2 years ago. They're still as easy as ever to clean. The barrels especially are very easy. Usually, the brake dust and dirt gets stuck to the insides, but no such worries on my alloys.
