Either that you've mentioned will be fine - both much the same as each other

I looked into C5 and Gyeon but went for some Race Glaze Nano Wheel sealant as its good value, easy to apply, durability is 6m+ and with plenty of product can easily add another layer as required.

C5 on mine well technically it’s C4 but still going strong after 2 years and 4 months. Never needed a wheel cleaner or fallout remover just wash and go

I've found gyeon rim and Carpro dlux to last similarly well, but neither as long as gtechniq C5, but then it costs just as much for half the amount of product.

Well I went the G'techniq route after several hours washing with APC then ipa wipedown, drying then the C1 with CSL over as experiment ( I had some left over) then
argggghhhhh - (divorce!).
After all that effort the wify decided to help by putting the last wheel on the wheel stand and what does she do... lets it fall face side down onto the concrete... mashing the newly sealed & powder coated finishing.

why, why why?
