I agree with Scott. I must have tried all the brands for wheel cleaners & protectants over the years, but I was never satisfied. I became a happy camper when I changed to ceramic pads on my '06 Charger SRT8. It was also the first mod I made when I bought my '12 Jeep SRT8 (I had the pads before I picked up the Jeep). The first photo I've attached shows one of my front wheels after 750 miles of dry & wet driving with the ceramic pads. My wheels never looked this good using any of the spray/wipe-on products. The second pic shows one of my freshly washed front wheels taken last weekend. IMHO it looks pretty good after 3 years driving with the ceramic pads.

I'm still looking for a long lasting plastic & rubber protectant. I'm currently trying out a couple of the ones that have had good reviews. It'll be interesting to see how long they last.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

I have the factory Spider Monkey's with the summer tires, Goliath wheels with the winter tires and now I have the srt8 reps for the new Yoko tires. I guess that could be for the in between seasons, lol. Can't wait to get these mounted next week (=

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

So the SRT8 reps are on. Didn't go with the Yoko's just used the stock P Zeros. The finish on the wheels are kind of crapy, no where near the finish on my Goliath wheels I got from the same vendor. Instead of a powder coat it's just a painted finish, like a spray can; seriously. After the summer I'll send them out to get powder coated the right way.

Factory Reproductions. Emailed him (Trevor) and told him to find a new painter.

When i put the winter wheels back on I'll unmount these tires and send the wheels for a new powder coating finish.
