    I have allready baught P21s Gel Wheel Cleaner, but i also want to protect the finish on my rims.

    What is the best to use for protect my rims?

    PS! I have 19 inch chrome rims on my car.

    :sheep: that's a wicked VW :worship: man the colour and the rims :thumb: look incredable very nice.

    As for protection I used to use wax, like Zymol Concorse, Victoria Concors but I found that the wax's didn't last so then I started using Jetseal 109 on rims and it looks and protects much better. Now I've started using Duraglos sealant and I'm waiting to see how long that will last but so far so good.

    What I'm trying to say is that I used to use wax to protect rims but now I use sealants instead...but that's just my :2cents:

    i used opti seal on my wheels easy to apply and the brake dust just wipes off with normal car wash

    I apply after every wash

    I used to think this as well until I touched my paint on a hot summer day... my rims NEVER get that hot...

    Sealants (105) or a very durable wax (845IW) are what I use...

    Yea I've been reading quite a bit on Swissvax Autobahn and it sounds great if you ask me, just one question can it be used on all kinds of rims? I thought it was supposed be used on only metal rims? I could be wrong though, if you could give me any tips that would be great as I am looking at purchasing it.

    Start out with some ZAIO and then finish with CS. That is my standard routine, some customers still want Z2pro instead of CS. So that is what they get.

    Pretty much any good sealant will work fine. Once they are protected, just use regular soap to clean them. Dont need any special wheel cleaners.

    That's one suck Dub!! Some people like to use sealants, of course with a foam applicator dedicated for wheels.
