    Default wheel wax?

    have heard people mention wheel wax before, is to to protect the alloys or just to clean them?
    am really after some coating to put on the wheels to help make it easier to clean, and also to protect them a bit from brake dust/tar/road crud
    would be grateful for any ideas or recommendations from you guys in the know as i dont have a clue where to start,lol

    RIM wax, put on clean wheels, makes them shine and stops as much dust clinging to them making it easier to clean. Lump introduced me to it and I swear by it now, one of the best things I have in terms of detailing.

    I use porboys wheel sealent. It also puts a shine on the wheels and seals them to, making them easier to clean.
