    Just wondering what products you guys use and rate - I do a fair few miles and my wheels get pretty manky and was wondering what waxes / barriers help to prevent discolouring and make cleaning a bit easier?

    I've tried some turtlewax stuff but it was pants and just seemed to make cleaning harder.

    Cheers

    i use autoglym products on my car/s and always have done, it does the trick.

    I find if you use satin black paint on your wheels you wont see the brake dust so easily and will have to wash them less often

    Hi,

    I do a fair few miles and clean the wheels first with wonder wheels.

    Then i use mer car super advanced shampoo (2 cap fulls) and mer ultimate car polish (2 cap fulls) in a full bucket.

    Really good results.

    Clean the car (seperate bucket) this way and it is awesome !

    I use stuff called Smartwax Rimwax - smells like bubble gum (!), but it brings my alloys up lovely and brake dust can't get a hold. I apply it every month and my wheels always look good. Recommended.
