Matte wheel protection - waxes, sealers etc

Postby ALES_AE111 » Fri Jun 24, 2016 2:35 pm

Hey all,

For people who own matte finished wheels, what do you use to protect them?

I've seen a few products out there, but like most things for matte finished paint they're pretty spendy so I'd like to figure out what good and bad experiences people have had before buying.

Any ideas?

Matte wheels be like suede shoes... no matter what you use to try and clean them,
they usually end up looking worse :| Warm water with a dash of a mild detergent
and a soft cloth should be OK... rinse well and just don't rub too hard.

Cheers for that, guys.

That Jetseal matte is what I'm going to go for. Just wondered if anyone had used it previously.

I'll post back here once I've used it and had the wheels on the car for a while.

Cheers
