    Default Megs" wheel brightener

    One for the detailers amongst us. I have bought some maguires wheel brightener, and was wondering if it will remove the paint sealent and the canuba wax that I have put on, also do you need to use it every time you wash the wheels, or would it depend on how dirty they are.

    Yes, it will remove the sealant & wax.
    Secondly, no need to use it every wash. It all depends on the condition of your wheels week in/week out. For example, I only use it once every 4 weeks but after a heavy week, last week, lots of miles = lots of dirt, I'll give them a light wash using this.

    Yep Scott is spot on there ..........I only use it if the wheels are very dirty which on my car isn't very often

    Bryan

    PS oh I have seen me "target" the use of it i.e. spray onto the inside of the weels, my wheels don't come off very often

    Hi Ed,

    Well until I put the Zymol on I waxed the car every time I washed it and that included the wheels now it's maybe once a month although I apply a coat of Megs #21 sealant first then apply the wax

    Cheers Bryan. I shall putting some of the Colinite 476s {you recomended for the body over the winter} on the wheels as it is quite durable, you can see how well it repels the water on the body work I am pleased with it.
