Hate brake dust? Cut washing wheels by 50%

Next time you wash your Jeep, wash your wheels extra good, and dry them thoroughly. Get some good carnauba wax (regular paint wax) and apply a few coats to all your wheels. (LET EACH COAT CURE!)

Makes a huge difference not only for brake dust but all dirt. Used to do it on all of my clients cars back when I was a detailer. Also, as an added bonus in the winter when they put salt/de-icer on the roads it protects your wheels!

If you want even better results, polish them with some mothers hand polish, then apply the wax.

I went from cleaning my Jeep's wheels once every 2-3 days, to 5-8. A little effort goes a long way if you're phyco about cleanliness like me

Save yourself the $8 for the armorall wheel protector BS, that stuff sucks.

I highly recommend Griots Garage products, they are simply awesome. Car Care Products, Detailing Supplies, Auto Accessories - Griot's Garage 800-345-5789

-Hope someone found this useful!

Re: Hate brake dust? Cut washing wheels by 50%

That site has Brushes to help you clean wheels (from brake dust I assume), are there specific brushes used to clean wheels ? Or would any brush from a DIY shop work just fine ? I'm wondering if some bristles can damage the wheels.

Any brush will work. I like to eather stick with a foam wand for tight spots, or a boars hair brush. The boars hair brush wont scratch anything, and it lasts a long time. I think they offer both on there site.

I had great results with Armour All Wheel Protectant. But ended up going with ceramics pads which made all the brake dust problems go away.

Why don't we just support our vendors and buy from Adams polishers. Deep wheel cleaner is the best stuff I have ever used for brake dust! End of story

Easy. Clean them off real good with the deep wheel cleaner and then you can seal them with the quick sealant or there is another product and it's a spray product. It's on their site and damn I forget. You'll see it on the sealant area of the site

Adams is a great company and stands buy their products. I hate when others on here bring items from competitors to the site. Let's support ADAMS! Plus we get the 10% off

I quick sealed my rims and pretty much just hose them off now and they are ready to roll!

+1 with Griot's Garage wheel wands and wheel cleaner. I use them religiously with fantastic results.

Ah I don't have these products where I live. Guess I'll just stick to soap and water
