    Sould i wax the wheels too?

    Hy guys,

    Should i wax the wheels too,in my case turbo wheels? Or will the heat make the wax act strange?

    Re: Sould i wax the wheels too?

    Wax will make keeping them clean easier.

    Re: Sould i wax the wheels too?

    I installed spacers a while back and while I had the wheels off, I thoroughly cleaned and put a coat of poly wax on them .

    The heat does not appear to have affected the wax.

    On the other hand, I would not go to the trouble of removing the wheels , just to clean/wax them. Lol

    Re: Sould i wax the wheels too?

    I use Swissvax Autobahn Wheel Wax. It's great. It restores a lovely shine to the wheels and also coats them so that brake dust etc adheres less easily to the wheel. Makes them easier to clean!

    Re: Sould i wax the wheels too?

    Don't forget to do the insides, too, which will help them to shed all the brake dust.

    Re: Sould i wax the wheels too?

    I agree with all the above comments: The wheels should definitely be waxed (I used Rejex) front and back if at all possible. Make sure the wheels are absolutely clean or else the existing dirt will be remain.

    Re: Sould i wax the wheels too?

    Check out RejeX (rejex.com). It's better than wax. Supposedly used on turbine engine _exhausts_ (!).

    I have the "Wheel Wax" product and prefer RejeX.

    Keeps stuff from sticking, excellent shine, brakedust blows off or wipes away alot easier. A little more involved applying it though.

    Re: Sould i wax the wheels too?

    Rejex is key. I loved it so much first time I used it on the C4S Cab, we started carrying it a week later. That was 3 years ago!

    I believe the correct Rejex address is http://www.corrosionx.com/rejex.html
