    Only issue I have seen with these type of spray and rinse on wheels is the decrease in self cleaning. They actually seem to attract more dirt than just a coated wheel. A coating maintenance spray sealant works better.

    Next time you coat your wheels with a wheel coating, leave it untouched. Then use your spray and rinse sealant on the other and you will see exactly what I mean. Thatís the only way I can describe it.

    I donít bother using them on my wheels for that exact reason.

    Re: Wheel Coatings - Worth it?

    I'll go out on a limb here and say any coating will work, you don't have to use one supposedly designed just for wheels.

    I've now coated two sets of wheels using the non-UK version of CQuartz. The first was the summer wheel on my previous car and the current application is on the winter wheels for my current car. Based on my experience with these applications on a daily driver, the summer wheel application easily lasted two seasons and was going into it's third. This included washing every week or two with a mild wheel cleaner and experienced at least a couple Autocross days. The winter wheels held up nicely through quite a bit of snow/salt/winter crud and only being washed 2~3 times all season due to weather. This was their first season and the coating shows no signs of degradation.

    The coating makes them really easy to clean and the only reason I still use a wheel cleaner is both cars are German with performance brake pads. Those things dust like crazy and a wheel cleaner tends to break down the brake dust a little better than regular soap and makes the cleaning process very easy.
