    really *issed off

    Took my wheels off my car to give them a good 3-4 coats of chemicalguys wheel sealant. Buffing off one of the wheels i see that I have a hole in my clearcoat

    dont know how this has happend, i waxed my wheels every 2-3 week as this is what i didnt want to happen to them



    anyway I dont know if this is the right section for this but what can I use to patch this backup ? and will wheelsealnt keep it from rusting in the meantime ?

    Could be a stone chip, wax etc won't protect against those.

    If theres no way to patch it i might just have to spray them a random coulor that goes well with my car, not paying for a refub.

    I was using AutoGylm HD wax. found it alot better than RimWax i got with the wheels. guess it wasnt up to it though

    and up close it person it doesnt look like a chip, just somthing not chip-ish about it lol

    If it's got a clear coat, I'm sure you can get a touch up pen to cover it up so it's protected, might not look great though.
