    Wheel Shield?

    A guy at work was telling me he saw something called "Wheel Shield" on a car tv show, supposibly it just sprays on and makes your wheels resistant to things sticking to them, such as brake dust, dirt, road salt, etc..

    I guess its a every so often application, I do not know the details, wondering if anyone has heard about it or used it?

    Armor All makes a product called Wheel Protectant.

    Looks like this:



    I used it on both my cars to try it out. It does work as advertised, in that it prevents brake dust from accumulating on your wheels (unless its raining). However, I did not like that it left a milky white residue on my black powdercoated wheels, so I probably won't buy it again.

    I asked the guy at work about again, he said the guy brought it up because he was "protecting" a huge chrome wheel for some hot rod, I still gotta look into it.

    I find it hard to believe that it lasts all year and you don't have to do anything to maintain the shine. Especially for about $10.00

    Yea thats called Eagle 1 "Keep Clean".

    Like you said, complete garbage. I like most Eagle 1 products, but that stuff is worthless. All it consists of is WD40 in a spray bottle. Same exact stuff. You spray it on the wheels, it makes them look all hazy, and then to top it off, it doesn't even work.

    Yeah but for 10 bucks I'm willing to try it. That's probably how they make their money, off people with that attitude, but oh well. I hate cleaning the rims so if there's a chance it works...

    I use that can't remember the brand it's in a blue can with a yellow top and I have used it on my painted wheels but I reapply after every wash. I have a chrome polish and a sealant that makes it easy to clean but it rubs on.

    Well if anyone of you guys actually try out the wheel shield, let us know how it works for you. I'm gonna get some for myself regardless and see how it does.

    I like the armor all wheel protectant, doesn't leave residue on my wheels plus I used it like 3 or 4 weeks ago and they are still clean. Mine aren't painted though, may act differently on painted wheels.

    I use Poor boys wheel protectant on my wifes Benz cause the brake dust is a bitch to remove and it's 80% easier to clean the wheels during every carwash. Just apply it like wax and remove it with a towel and lasts 3 months. I would never buy a Benz or BMW way too much brake dust.
