Alloy Wheel Protection

    Keeping alloy wheel clean can be a real chore, as can cleaning them. Wheels receive more wear than any other part of the car, firstly because they are closest to the road, road salts, grit and grime. They also get coated in hot brake dust which contain metal fallout which sticks to your alloy wheels by means of static electric charge, this then oxidizes and can eat into the paintwork of your wheels.

An answer to this problem has been a long time coming, but in the last few years, sealants have been developed which are especially formulated to protect painted alloys, chrome and stainless steel, repel fallout by altering the static electric charge of the wheel and offer extra protection against red hot brake dust.
