    Like to know how it deals with baked on dust mate

    I use RimWax, a couple of coats every 5-6 weeks and yes it does help speed up the weekly cleaning process

    My mate has just used a product called Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour, £23.49
    but one application should last 12 months, Gtechniq products seem to be getting great reviews on detailing forums.

    Autoglym is good, but not that great. I still have tiny dust spots baked on, but clay bar usually removes that.
