    so i'm wondering what you would recommend for a wheel wax type thing.

    wash the car every other month but by the 2-3rd week in i get the usual brake dust on the front wheels. wondering if there's a type of wax you guys use on the rims to help with the brake dust?

    take care

    I just starting using the Mint wax for wheels from Auto Finnesse. Great stuff. Easy to work with too.

    Recently for up keep I have been using Adams spray sealant with good results. Super easy to just spray on and even out and gives good protection. Makes the next wash really easy

    My vote for an inexpensive wheel wax/sealant that will last a very long time is 845 or 476s. Makes cleaning wheels a breeze.

    got a suggestion for white painted wheels? I know they are a pain to clean, but they look great when they are.

    Opticoat is the best!

    Collinite/Optiseal / Spray wax will work as well. Depends on the wheel usage.

    I've had success with Hydo2. I have never tried Opticoat and thats on my to do list.

    I've used Hyd02 on wheels as well and it wasn't bad, But my vote goes to the 845. Great stuff for paint and wheels. I have 2 coats on a BMW right now and I wouldn't say it repels the brake dust,
    But I can tell you it makes it a whole lot easier to clean. If you have the time and money I personally would go with some opti coat.
