best protection for new wheels

Gtechniq C5 has got good reviews on Detailing World and lasts 12months.

I've just bought some for my refurbed wheels to protect them

I've been using the Poorboys wheel wax and Autoglym spray wheel sealant to date which are great, Poorboys the better of the two, but both don't last long term.

I've just used a company called Carbon Collective, found them on Facebook. A product called platinum wheels which had some good reviews and you tube videos, but I guess time will tell

just put whatever wax you have on them. they'll come up like new after every wash.

I thought C5 was expensive sh1te on wheels personally, had most success with chemical guys wheel guard, but generally anything needs frequent reapplication on wheels.

I've used Smartwax RimWax for many years with no complaints. I've been told that Poorboys, Chemical Guys and RimWax are all made in the same factory with different packaging but not sure if this is true.
