Re: My name is Rick and I am a beadaholic

I'm also a beadaholic.

Unfortunately, it spread into me wanting my wheels to bead. So I wax them too now. And then I wait for it to rain for twice the beading. Then I curse because my tire shine is water soluble and disappears.

What wax do you use on your wheels?

Re: My name is Rick and I am a beadaholic

I usually use Meguiar's NXT on the wheels. Gives it a little more metallic pop, and lasts a decent amount of time if you apply it and let it sit for a few hours. Gives it some minor resistance to getting dirty too I think.

There's a few specialized waxes out there for wheels, never tried them though.

NXT never lasted long for me. Have you tried Collinite #915? Unreal

The trick with NXT is to let it sit for as long as possible to set up, as its a synthetic sealant. I usually try to let it set up for a few hours in the garage, and it can last 4-6 months provided you wash it and either spray wax or use a wash&wax in one for upkeep every few weeks.

A lot of people don't get the best results with it because they don't give it time to adhere properly, they use it like a carnauba and try to get it on and off as fast as possible.

3M Performance finish sealant also is a very durable and decent looking sealant for on wheels. I use it on the wifey's ride when I know it won't be washed/waxed for a long time because I won't be around.

Will have to look into the Collinite stuff. Sounds like it could work out well on her Outlander.

Re: My name is Rick and I am a beadaholic

Collinite, Duragloss, many others will outperform NXT hands down (and will not stain trim in the process). NXT smells good, easy on, easy off, looks good for a short while...that's about it. I've had a bottle on the shelf for > 5 yrs. I use it on mower now.

Re: My name is Rick and I am a beadaholic

Curious, why only use it as a winter wax? Is it not as shiny as other products but protects better? I'm in florida...no winter, ever.
