Wheel Wax?

So I got these new wheels (not rims ) today, but i want to put a wax on the wheels so that dust and debris atleast come off easier when i wash. Ive eve heard that you can use "pam". that scares me though. what do you guys use?

i would use something that is made for what you are looking for... just goto peb boys and see what they got... i wouldnt use regular wax because you dont know how it would act, and the last thing u want to do is dry out the rubber on the tire because then it will crack and be prone to leaking...

I use NuFinish...

On my wheels and have had great success. It will last quite a while. In between waxing I use the Turtle Wax Express Shine in the green bottle..

I would suggest a set of Axxis Deluxe Plus brake pads for your car if you really want to get rid of the brake dust. My brother has them on his Z Coupe Roadster and the difference is amazing. I just bought mine from Dave Z. here: http://www.zeckhausen.com/axxis_pads.htm

Total cost was $94.00 shipped for front and back...

Try using mother's polish, or anything from BILLET polishes works. I'm waiting on a can of polish from that new nano-wax stuff from eagle one, let you know how it turns out.

Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

One of the best products I've used on wheels is Collinite Insulator Wax. Available from Autogeek Dot Com. It's a sealant with hi-temp resistance properties.

Wheel Wax is also good, but Collinite is extremely slick in finish and makes wheel maintenance easy. It's also good for any painted surface, especially in the winter.

but does it reverse the polarity of the wheels to no longer magnatize the metalic break dust like the real wheel wax does?
