    Re: Regular wax on rims. ??

    I coated my wheels a year ago. Still shed water and clean easily. Bit time consuming but worth it to me. Canít mention it since itís not sold at AG but Iím sure some of the ones they carry will do the same job.

    You can't find them at AG, but at least one coating vendor who sells coatings here offers 10ml sample sized bottles for sale elsewhere. It's the perfect size for doing a set (or two) of wheels.
    AutoGeek has c5 wheel armor (Gtechnic) in 15ml bottle. Havenít used mine yet but got good reviews from most

    I've used Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour and it has held up to the toughest and longest Canadian winter we had last year (Mid Nov to April)! Thought we'd get a break this year, snow on the ground this morning!

    Michigan here, itís terrible.

    My car currently sits in the garage with dried salt water on it. Most people with nice hobby cars only have them out five months before itís time to hang them back up in storage.

    If it's just wax. Spray some APC on it after you have cleaned them and let it dwell and aggitate it lightly and rinse off directly. Don't let chemicals dry on and surface and you will be fine. If you have an acidic based wheel cleaner you can start with that and after a thoroughly rinse. You can apply an alkaline based wheel cleaner. With aggitations you make it more effective. And think that this would be takeing off the old wax.

    If this don't work you probebly have a chemical etching which is needed to be polishing. Test with the least aggressive first as a polish and move up if necessary to a compound. If you are unlucky and the chemical etching has gone through the paint on the rims. The aluminum is porous and it's gone deep inside of it. So it's only to be repaint them to sort it out.

    You can in between the cleaning heat it up and see if it's coming back. A hairdryer is usually enough and if you know what you are doing and are carefull a heat gun will also work. If you get it back you may need to be doing a couple of these cleaning. Just don't heat up and of the new chemicals you have put on.

    I was referring to CQuartz UK. The sample bottle is much less than Gtechnic, yet still has enough to do a second coat or a coat on another set of wheels.

    CQUK on my last set of wheels easily lasted two years. Not bad durability in my mind.
