    Just don't ever wash them, brake dust will do that for you.

    Was gonna ask what you use for yours. I have two bottle of mothers billet but i've heard of sealants that are supposed to keep them looking good longer and help keep off the brake dust.

    Mother's billet is the best polish for them, period. Its gotten harder to find though

    I used Zoop Seal when I first bought mine. Cost $100 but gave 2 years protection. I never did reseal them again, just mainly because of the little driving I do, plus it sits in the garage during any weather <75 The Zoop did work well though. They were easier to clean up when they had the sealant on them.

    Luos suggested I try the Rejex sealant which is much cheaper, wouldn't last 2 years though. I never did get around to using it, probably should at some point though.

    Yes, but if the CCWs, Iforged, and Fikse's were not so expensive, then everyone would have them, and they would be the equivalent in popularity of Z06 wheels, ZR1 wheels and TT2s. All nice looking wheels, but I enjoy having a wheel that is not on 8 out of 10 fbodies.

    I searched online too, looks like it has gone out of business

    I did find a replacement, Shine Seal. May want to search on that. You would probably be fine with the Rejex though, Luos always said he got 6 months protection or so from it IIRC.
