Alloy Wheel Protector

Recommended Posts

This is a new product, not the traditional wax-based formula but uses a bonding polymer to "seal" the alloy from the elements. It comes as a two-stage aerosol, the first is an alloy wheel coating and the second is a refurb spray to be used at 2-3 month intervals after the first stage.

The multi-spoke Racing Sparco rims I have on the Tubby are terrible to clean as it's difficult to get right to the back past the spokes. A couple of months ago I removed all the wheels, gave them a good cleaning with "Wonder Wheels", dried them off and then sprayed on the alloy wheel coating spray and rubbed in with a foam pad. After the solution starts to go sticky, buff it up with a microfibre cloth.

Next time you come to clean up the wheels, it's so much easier - all you need is a small sponge and soapy water!

This stuff doesn't come cheap @ around £25 for the kit but is easily the best alloy protector I've found so far. It would be an excellent product to use on rims with a diamond cut or polished lip, which are prone to losing the clear coat and then corroding.

Highly recommended! :D

Where from Mike?

I paid £25 from a local independent performance parts dealer :blush:

But I see that it's on sale on eBay for as low as £20 including shipping :D

You need to consider heat with these and will need to remove them before taking the car into Lexus.

The Kleen Wheels looks quite similar to the Supagard stuff you can buy. Works well on my wheel and other people seem to recommend it - you can buy a Supagard care kit off of eBay for a ludicrously cheap price (about 1/5th of the dealer price) and it has wheels cleaner and wheel protector cans in it.
