sealant for bare metal polished alloy rims 3 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 57
Hi lads, can anyone on here (silverlux?) recommend a good wax/sealant for bare metal polished rims to give them a bit of protection after the refurb. I've done a lot of reading into whether i should lacquer them or not and have decided not to. So now i need to get something to protect them, any suggestions of product/prices welcomed and also where i can get it...

I did some research when was polishing my 2 intake manifold. In the end came to conclusion not to lacquer or coat it due to pain in the arse to remove lacquer if it gets chip,scratch. The easiest way is to keep on top of it and polish it once in a while. Most of the pastes would contain agents that help metal to oxidize, keep an eye out for that. If we're talking about cheaper prolonged treatment on polished surface the best is some sort of wax that's as pure as possible without solvents or petroleum stuff.

This is meant to be the biz, picked up some myself but haven't had a chance to seal my wheels yet. defo need to get some iron x as the wheels have started to take brake dust sports.

Autosol metal polish is unbeatable in my opinion and only 8 euro. All those bikers can't be wrong

Yeah those things are great for polishing but won't seal it.
Polish it first using one of those polishing compounds then stick the poorboys on.
