How to Protect Wheels

Protect Your Wheels!

Stay Protected!

Enthusiasts and detailers spend hours polishing and detailing the outside of their cars, but very few get deep into cleaning their wheels; let alone protecting them. Wheels are one of the key components that truly make a car stand out, but what does that mean if you’re not going to care for them and let the finish go to waste. Sure, you may clean your wheels, but do you ever think about protecting them too? Take them to the next level of shine and protect them to ensure an easier time cleaning them and making them look better for longer by repelling brake dust, water spots and harmful UV rays.

Let's get started! For this part of the article we're going to assume that you have already properly cleaned your wheels and are ready for the part to start protecting them and revealing a higher shine! First, we're going to need just a few things to get started:

We will start off by ensuring that our wheel is completely contamination free (dirt, grime, dust etc.) and have all proper items required in order for us to complete the steps below. First, we will need Wheel Guard Max Coat which is what we will be applying to our wheels; it is a synthetic wheel sealant. Also, a foam or microfiber applicator pad to apply our product onto the finish of the wheels. Lastly, a few premium microfiber towels to buff off the wheels from the product and a few extra just in case you drop one of your towels.

First, we will begin by getting our Wheel Guard Max Coat and giving it a quick vigorous shake and then opening up the product. Next, grab an applicator pad and lightly dip it into the can of Wheel Guard, not too much, a little bit goes a long way! Now once your applicator pad has some product on it, gently dab it onto the face and spokes of the wheel to distribute the product throughout the wheel. Then you will simply glide your applicator in straight motions all over the wheel. Make sure to get in between the spokes, the face, and the barrel of the wheel to ensure a complete application. Once you've applied an even coat throughout the whole wheel, let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes so that the product can bond properly to the surface. Now, the product has flashed (you can tell when the product has a light haze and wipes off completely) and you are ready to remove the product. To remove the product, grab one of your premium grade microfiber towels and simply proceed to buff off the product from all areas of the wheel.

By following all the steps above you have successfully sealed and protected your wheels from everyday contaminants such as brake dust, dirt, and road grime that cause corrosion and damage to wheels. Wheel Guard Max Coat is also synthesized with an anti-static polymer that repels brake dust, water spots, and UV rays from eating away at the finish of the wheel. Last but not least, you have revealed a durable and high shine from the synthetic gloss enhancers formulated in Wheel Guard Max Coat for months to come!
