Wheel protection

Post by Dermottdog » Thu Mar 19, 2020 6:08 pm


So I’m limiting my social contact with people. This has given me time to wash the car inside and out. Today I washed the wheels thoroughly and applied two different types of wax.
The N/S/R and the O/S/F wheels were treated to an application of Rim Wax and the O/S/R and the N/S/F wheels were treated with Poor Boys.

The Poor boys feels superior but time will tell how they will repel brake dust etc.

I find that just washing in the normal car shampoo from the supermarket, Turtle Wax or similar, after washing the rest of the car in the same, works very well. I wouldn't spend anything on fancy washes.

The wheels are very smooth and nothing sticks easily.

I'd be interested if you see a difference in the products. Good to have an experiment like this to pass the isolation!

Perhaps a more interesting experiment would be to leave one untouched.

I am using the PoorBoys for many years now, for me still the best protection.
