You may want to consider trying some Finish Kare FK100P which is a High Temperature paste wax. It will resist the red hot brake compound particles which fuse to normal wheel protectants or the wheel lacquer itself. It comes in an enormous 412g tin, provides a ridiculous gloss to the bodywork and insane levels of water beading. Very clever German technology.

A few years ago i had i think it was a turtle wax dust barrier polish that you just sprayed on and wiped after washing the wheels. So fancied something like that again as i can't find it on the internet. Anyone know something that does the same thing, just a spray and wipe round the wheels and it comes off in the next wash or two but just makes life easy? Thanks

Was it this?

I myself haven't tried this but Bouncer's make pretty decent stuff and if you was looking for something fairly new maybe have a look at this one:


You'd need to decontaminate the alloy but one you have that base layer it can be stacked.

Some good recommendations here, thanks.

My suggestion would be not to spray any slippery stuff directly onto wheels, but to spray it onto a cloth or other applicator then wipe it on the wheel. In this way you don’t contaminate the inevitability exposed brake disc with overspray.....

A very good recommendation.

What I didn't mention is that every time I clean my car, I take the wheels off for a full back and front clean. Is that normal? :rolleyes:

Who cares about normal? I think that a paste/wax application is more durable than a spray... based on my own intuition. With a polish, you can also ensure that you have personally covered every nook and cranny.

I like to polish the alloys front and rear before I fit them to the car (summer and winter alloys). With the double speed wax I find that an application of the auto wheel spray pretty much cleans the visible portions of the wheel, particularly in conjunction with a set of 'wheel woolies' which offer good reach with a variety of sizes.

Once the alloys come off, the double speed wax means that any brake dust that has been 'caked on', is clean with either no or a little effort. It's quite gratifying, really.

If you're removing the wheels every time to clean the vehicle and you clean the vehicle regularly, then it doesn't seem to matter if you use a spray or a polish.

Jesus, i love things shiny and immaculate but taking the wheels off all the time is a bit too much for me, but i do use the wheel woolies and i can get my hand in with the amg wheels to do the barrels, so maybe deep down i must be as bad, thanks for all the recommendations. i have narrowed it down to 3 Poorboys wheel sealant, Chemical guys wheel guard or Bit hambler speed wax, i suppose the speed wax you can use on anything so may be more useful, i will have to look on utube for a video on that, but was impressed with the shine of Chemical guys on video, now they wouldn't just be pulling my leg would they? so just gone from a dust spray to getting even more involved, is this the slippery slope.

I have experience with double speed wax and yes, it has multiple applications and is a serious product, as is the style of Bilt Hamber. Finish Kare 1000 was also a good recommendation.

You definitely seem to be on the right track with with the KKD. A bit pricey but it is considered a second generation sealant, a step up from the ubiquitous Gtechniq C5 Wheel armour and with a variant available for non-gloss wheel finishes to boot.
