Can someone give me some information on where to obtain Rejexs ? I'm probably spelling it incorrectly, but it's the wax that I have heard many mention that they use on the inner portions of their wheels to keep the brake dust off. Thanks

I agree it doesn't work. Best thing to do is change to hawk pads so you don't get the dust. Next best thing is to have your wheels powder coated w/ a clear coat, then they clean up very easy.

I'll 3rd the 'It don't work' response.

I actually rejexed two rims, and left the other unwaxed. I then went to a 2 day driving event. When I got home, both sides were just black as hell. When I went to clean them, I couldn't tell a bit of difference between the two sides. Both were a PIA to clean.

Hawk pads help the situation, but don't cure it -- at least not for me and my CCW wheels.

Amount of dust is reduced...and color changed (lighter). Maybe the lighter color blends with stock wheels but not my CCW's.

Rejex and other gunk helps little....

quick question to those who say it doesnt work, what checmical did you use to clean your wheels when you cleaned them the first time after waxing them?

Rejex isnt perfect, but it made it WAY WAY easier for ME to clean my wheels and did keep them cleaner longer...

I will agree that the pads will make a bigger difference which is why I have a set waiting to go on when necessary.

I've been pleased with the Rejex and ceramic pad combo. Works 4 me. Here's where I get mine.

I agree, it doesn't work, but just in case I recently did it anyway when I put my Mille Miglias on. (BTW, I am desperately trying to NOT drive it this winter, but the weather has been mild and I can't help it.)

Rejex is great stuff. It won't keep your wheels any cleaner and it won't really make cleaning them any faster because that is not really what it is all about. If you want bugs to clean off really quickly with little effort then this is the stuff for you.
I use it on my airplane and bug guts just wipe off. Told a friend of mine to try it on the deck of his boat. Stains and Fishfly guts just hose right off.
If you have a general aviation airport nearby with a pilot shop I'm pretty sure they will have it.

When I did what I described above, I pulled the rim off the car, and scrubbed the hell out of it with Damn Dish soap, and a wheel brush.

does anyone do anything to protect the wheel? I mean do you guys put regular wax on them as you would the paint of your car? I have painted wheels so I thought maybe regular wax would work ok.

Hawk Performance is the way to go.
