Question Which is the best/most sustained wheel sealant?

Hi all,
I read a lot of this topic but i can not decide.

Which is the best or most sustained wheel sealant?

I'm looking for a product which protect my rims for 3-4 months (at winter).
Finish kare Hi-temp wax or CG max coat wheel guard, Poorboys Wheel Sealant,
Autoglym Wheel Protector or which stuff the most recommended ?

Thanks for help!

I would go with Finish kare...a thorough decon, clean and a good IPA wipedown is needed prior for best durability. Youll easily get 3 months out of it.

Poorboys didn't last long and that was with three coats!

Have been using AF mint rims. One application (one layer) has lasted about a month so far.

One coat of collinate 845 lasted all last winter for me. It says wax on bottle but it's a sealant

C5 Wheel Armour from Gtechniq.
Full De-contamination and prep first then apply for the best results.

For just a wheel sealant I'd have to say EZ car care's extremely underrated product imho. Out and out protection it has to be Gyeon Q2 Rim.

ODK Momentum if you're looking for a wax.
Very easy to use and super durable.

If we're using sealant in the widest sense, a coating like Gtechniq C5, Carpro DLUX, Gyeon Rim is going to leave most other products for dust. That said, you need to get the prep just right for these types of products, if you need something that is not quite as demanding then I would give FK1000P a go. It's doing a grand job on Mum's Jazz, and those things are murder on their front wheels because the pads dust so much.

FK1000P has worked well for me in the past with between 3 and 6 months durability. Gtechniq wheel armor on the other hand is in its own league. Protection should last between 1-2 years.
