    poorboys wheel sealent gets my vote, really good stuff 2 layers the first time you use it then just top up the protection when you clean the car. dont need wheel cleaner after using this on wheels. done my wheels about 3 months ago and they still look ace and clean very easily.

    when i had my ford escort it had the rs7 diamond cut alloys and i used autoglym alloy wheel seal and they stayed mint for the time i had the car, i just sprayed the wheel seal on once a month and they stayed mint and looked very shiny and didnt get any build up of brake dust what so ever

    So both of the above products sound good, my main concern is being able to remove dirt with ease once I come to cleaning the wheels for the first time.

    even though you have a new set of alloy wheels that have never been used . i would still clean them, then clay them first, as its what the eye can not see, that causes wax/sealant not to bound to the surface properly .
    so give them a wash/clay/wash dry through out. then apply a sealant . as they have a much longer durabilty .

    i use this which even after 4 weeks of wheels not cleaned, they come up brand new and still show signs of beeding/protection .

    give 2 coats of this stuff and you will be fine
