After 2 weeks of the armoral wheel protectant treatment I have the results. The stuff works! The only catch is that I have to learn to apply it better, I missed a few spots. On the areas that were fully treated the dirt slid off and "puddled" in a little ball. A breeze to remove. On the areas I missed, well, see for yourself:

I love this stuff as well, found it difficult to apply at first, wasn't expecting it to go on like that, think if you apply it often enough there won't be any missed spots.

I've been using it also, but these wheels get so dirty inside too.
Because the spokes are so thin I constantly clean the inside and outsides every few days!
They are so open you can't hide all the dirt!

I'm pleased with the results of my application as well. Definitely an improvement.

I used this wheel protectant from Armorall and it works better than I hoped for.
As result I don't have to wash my car as often just to get the wheels clean.
Try it you will like it.

Agreed. used it on my wheels and 2 weeks later, after rain, a few 2 hour drives, they are still shiny like I just washed em. Great product!

I get little pools of brake dust too like in your pic... I wonder if thats just where the dust ends up? wipes right off.

I used it as well. I wonder if it layers. It may get better with more applications - like a polish.

Yes, I will get better at applying it, couldn't get much worse actually! lol. But it does show how dirty the whole wheel would have been, so I posted the pics anyway.:yup:

Yup, this stuff works great as I was stating in another post. Spend a little while and take the rims/tires completely off to do the inside of the rim. Nice difference!
