    Question about Gyeon Wetcoat on wheels...

    Hey everyone,
    I read several posts on this forum recommending Gyeon Wetcoat on wheels. I just used Wetcoat for the first time on the wheels on my wife's Mustang Mach E and was impressed. Super easy and quick to apply. While I love the look of the wheels, they are a lot of work to keep clean. I hoping that the Wetcoat will make it easier for me to clean them.

    My question is, this car sits outside 24-7 and often in direct sunlight. How long can I expect Wetcoat to last? How often do I need to reapply it?

    Many thanks,
    Joe

    I've used Wet Coat quite a bit and it's a great product. I would use it on wheels every other wash. It won't stand up to the heat generated by the brakes, but it helps make cleaning easier.

    You can buy the concentrate of Wet Coat called Essence. Carpro Hydro2 lite I think is an even better value.

    I use it every couple months, in between I do a rinseless on them. I have Carpro Hydr02, gyeon wet coat, and BF hydroseal on the shelf, I use them interchangeably and don’t find any difference between them. They all work well. I Spray on, hard hose off….dry with leaf blower….

    Using a spray sealant often tends to attract more dirt than using it every few weeks. Just my experience.

    Just use the drying aid you use to top off.

    Nanoskin Super Charger in the 1:100 gallon concentrate is the leader of value if you’re willing to make a large up front purchase. Otherwise, like Glen E said, they’re all similar so buy the best value.

    Re: Question about Gyeon Wetcoat on wheels...

    I was using Poorboys Wheel Sealant until I learnt about Carpro Hydr02. Having to deal with the Mustang PP1 wheels was a full-time job as it was, a spray and rinse product was a game changer for me. The only thing I missed was the smell of the Poorboys.











    Have been using Hydr02 Concentrate and Gyeon Wet Coat ever since.





    It's even good on mowers too.......



    In terms of protection and making wheels easier to clean, I think these products do achieve that in a limited way. As mentioned, the heat in these areas will reduce it's lifespan, but application is so easy that it can be topped up ever months or two. As much as anything, I find having these products on wheels makes them easier to blow dry after the wash.

    Wetcoat, as a sprayable application, won't last long at all. If you wash the vehicle once a week it will help. If you wash your vehicle every other week, or every 3 weeks or once a month then you'll want to consider are a more durable form of protection. A good ceramic coating (like Carpro Dlux or Gyeon Rim) would be the way to go.

    Sio2 spray n rinse products are really only great for instant water beading after washing to make drying easier.

    ^ I have found this to be true. Glorified rinse aid IMO. Nothing more. Will protect for a few weeks only if you don't use a contact wash. Contact washes usually kill the spray/rinse sealants.

    …in fact Gyeon told me that Wet Coat doesn’t offer UV or oxidation protection which I found surprising considering Carpro states that their hydro2 does.

    How does Carpro Hydro2 compare to Mckees37 Hydro Blue?
