    I polished the wifes 17' vxrs' on her zaffy,then used poor boys wheel sealant,hell of a lot of brake dust comes off them for some reason (might have something to do with her being "one of the last breakers!!!")
    Blast with the power-hose cleans them back up again

    Is there much brake dust off yours david?

    Basically any wax will protect your wheels but iv'e read that Collinite 845 insulator wax seems to have a lot of followers for this specific job.

    Speak to the like of Happypostie about sealants, hes in to Zanio products so may be able to suggest something from them too. Waxes can be "sticky" so may attract dust. The good thing about Pentas is that they are easy to keep clean.

    I usually use 2 coats of Poorboys wheel sealant followed by a coat of colly, lasts forever and the brake dust just glides off.

    thanks mate . i put a couple off coats off zaino z2 on mine ,some say that you can top this with a coat off zaino clear seal . ( ive got this but have not used it ) . rimwax / poorboys wheel wax are all good . before i went the zaino route , i just used ag srp on them . i find any poilsh /wax /sealant on them will help in not letting the brake dust stick . khalid

    the vectra has gone , but not far away so ill still see it form time to time
