    Wheel Wax -Is This Any Good?

    Has anyone tried or know anything about this product for cleaning wheels?

    http://www.speeding.co.uk/acatalog/c...Wheel_Wax.html

    I normally use Autoglym super resin on my alloys but it still takes a lot of rubbing to get them anything like, I'm a bit worried that I'll do more damage than good by rubbing too much with the Autoglym.

    Wax does not clean !

    I just use normal polish on my alloys...seems to work fine, and makes cleaning them easier.
    This may be more of a wax...but I would'nt spend my money on it.

    sorry mate but they are not hard waxes. try something called collinite, wheel wax is specialised in the fact it can withstand high temperatures and brake dust/corrosion.

    Turtle wax extreme will evaporate and super resin polish doesn't offer a lot of protection.

    Get collonite from www.seriousperformance.co.uk you could also try poorboys wheel sealant from there too. Both specialised products for that kindo use.
