Hi bikers,
Any body got idea what to use on painted [mat black] alloy wheel? I use Meguiar's Natural Shine Protectant [vinyl, plastic & rubber] but it dose not last long more than a week.

Do you know if it is clear coated? If so, treat it just like paint. You can coat it with any wax,sealant or permanant coating.

Or you can go with something like Ultima Trim & Tire Guard. But with the heat that builds up on a rim you'd be better off with opti-coat.

Thank you guise for reply. Wheel is not clear coated, it is mat finish. It is factory painted & not painted by me. I can not use wax as it is mat finish. Any trim polish works on it but for few days only.
