Armor All Wheel Protectant

Anyone used the Armor All Wheel Protectant on your wheels, purchased a can last night but have not sprayed it on the wheels yet. Any feedback on this product, good or bad?

Thanks

Armor All used to have a lot of negative connotations with them in the detailing world. It does seem that they have upped their products however.

I think better than any armor all wheel protectant would be a good sealant. At the moment, imo the best sealant right now is http://www.autogeek.net/blackfire-we...d-sealant.html

The absolute best thing you could do for your wheels is opticoat them. That is permanent though, like forever. The only thing that takes it off is hard abrasion. http://www.autogeek.net/optimum-opti-coat.html

I opticoated my entire car, so I can testify it working insanely well. I no longer use waxes or sealants on my car. Many people have opticoated their wheels and have found less brake dust and brake dust easier to wipe away... and I totally believe this from the ease that dirt comes off my car.

Long story short, yeah it should work, but there are better products out there imo.

I've used that Armor All product. I would recommend it given that the brake pads are dust factories

This video prompted me to buy it. It was posted prior

I have it and it works pretty good just DON'T let it drop onto your tires, it will stain them
