Why use a wheel coating?

Conventional waxes last 2-3 months at a maximum and are labor intensive to apply to a wheel. Using wheel coating allows the strongest amount of protection on a vehicle with huge time savings at an unbeatable value:
 
  • adds clear coat thickness to paint (approximately 1-2 microns)
  • stays cleaner longer and resists contamination
  • better UV, chemical etching, scratch, & mar resistance
  • better gloss retention
  • hydrophobic so water & dirt repels from the finish
  • will not oxidize and can stand up to 1000 degrees
  • does not degrade with strong degreasers or even acid based washes
 

HOW LONG DOES a wheel coating last?

 
We recommend reapplication after 2-5 years dependent on proper maintenance. A wheel coating treatment does not break down with normal conventional waxes or washing. The coating will contaminate overtime so it must be decontaminated. Proper safe wash maintenance is essential to prolonging the coating lifespan.
 

 WHEN should I apply a wheel coating?

 
New aftermarket or replacements wheels should be coated immediately out of the box. Used or stock wheels vary on treatment time, for a new vehicle we emphasize coating the wheel as soon as possible.

HOW DO YOU APPLY THE WHEEL COATING? 

Essentially you are paying for the preparation of the wheel coating versus the process of applying the coating. We warn all customers, painted surfaces with clear coat really help the coating to be effective. Some uncoated metals may not respond the strongest in durability.
 
      •  
      • remove brake dust or dirt with proper chemicals, and in some cases CarPro Iron X for any iron deposits
      • identify & remove contamination such as tar, adhesive residue, wheel weight marks, rubber, or brake dust
      • polish applicable surfaces and remove any major defects in surface
      • prep painted surface to apply coating & inspect for high spots

The wheel coating will initially cure in 12-24 hours, no chemicals should touch the surface.  Coating will cure after 30 days with exposure to UV & heat.

CAN I NEVER WASH MY WHEELS OR RIMS?

No. You will still need to use basic car soap to clean your wheel coating treatment. Check out our Ultimate Wheel Care Guide for more solutions to your wheel cleaning. It is crucial to maintain the coating by doing annual decontaminations and waxing frequently.
