I've heard of the stuff, apparently its supposed to repel most of that brake dust and grime you get from the roads, and it lasts much longer than paint wax.


Is this true? Has anyone used it? Where can I get some?

I saw it in their catalog, so it should be on their site.

Haven't used it, but I hope I will sometime.. My wheels are really dirty, and I need some tips on cleaning them!

Just use the same wax you use on your car.

normal wax doesnt work, it actually attracts dust and it doesnt last as long..

I've only been able to find it in the states, wondering if any local stores.. I want to refrain from ordering online cuz its not worth it, and I want it NOW! :P

You can try a polymer sealant, such as Meguiar's #20. I've read that each application should last for several months vs. only a few weeks for a wax. I want to try it myself, but the only place that sells it that I know of is CarQuest (http://www.carquest.com), and my local store is currently out of stock. I've also heard about some wax that repels brake dust, but the name escapes me at the moment.

Just don't use the brakes. You wouldn't want dust all over those gorgeous basketweaves of yours:D

hey julian you have the same style rims as i do and feel your wheel-cleaning pain,,,but from what i hear, its not worth it to buy ,,because you need to use alot and it only last a few washes or so.. so it may not be worth the price.....but hey i just use good ol' elbow grease,,
