I always seal my alloys with spray wax after cleaning. Or if I 3 stage (paint cleaner, Polish, wax) the car, I do the same with the wheels. :)

Nice one! I have now started polishing and waxing them. Hopefully the dirt will not stick to them as much, they also look good afterwards!

wheels are looking good bud. after giving my wheels a good cleaning I then seal them with poor boys wheel sealant and it lasts a long time .

you don't need to use much, they recommend two light coats but if you don't have the time then one coat works just as well and once applied I find I don't need any cleaners just soap and hot water . happy days .

Chemical Guy's Diablo Wheel Gel will see them like new. Great stuff and can be used on any wheel surface. Totally safe on break parts too.
