So I have found a bottle of holtz wax that I used last year on my old fiesta. Worked great and beaded well. I have some left and won't be using it for the new car as I got some orange crush from dodo juice.

So can I use it for my alloys? Is it just a matter of putting on, waiting and buffing off? Just like the car itself,

Would like to take all if them off and do them completely front and behind the wheel

Yes it will work exactly the same way as waxing the car body as you're waxing a painted surface. You'd only really struggle with bare chrome wheels :P

 

On a side note though it probably won't last very long and you'd be better off with a high temperature wax - due to the high temperatures that the wheels get to with braking. It will significantly shorten the life of a normal wax

Finnish Kare 100p is without a doubt the best high temperature wax I've used. When cleaning the car you can blast off 75% of the dirt with a pressure washer. It gives the wheels a good shine to.

 

Auto Finesse mint rims is also very good :D

I used standard polish on alloys a couple of months ago and they are still beading now;)!
