    Alloy wheel cleaning

    I have standard VX alloys on my car, I have never really took care of them due to looking for a new set.

    Now I think I have found a set that I like but I want to look after them and seal them etc before putting them on.

    I would just like to know what everyone uses to clean, polish and seal alloys.

    Cheers in advance

    I've polished mine with SRP then sealed the with 5 coats of Poorboy's Wheel Sealant, but they need doing again as it's starting to wear off.

    Best bet is to wash the wheels with a non-acidic wheel cleaner such as AG Clean Wheels, then clay them, wash again, polish then seal

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
