Caring for diamond cut finish alloys

Hi all,

I've just had my wheels refurbed back to the diamond cut finish they had from factory.

I'm keen to keep them looking as good as possible! Any advice?

Thanks!

yes get them sealed and then use odk rotate diluted 20-1 for general cleaning or car shampoo from a bucket and when you reapply the sealant use bilthamber auto wheel or car chem revolt which are fallout removers

I'll get them off and sealed up! Any recommendations?

Gtechniq, but it's a ceramic, so if you've never used one before id exercise caution, especially in these wet months unless you have a garage

as said. they take time to dry.
i have 2 layers of race glaze nano wheel seal on my diamond cuts.
just spray it on clean dry rims, wait a few mins and then buff, 1h later do the same again and 2 layers will give you 6 months+ cleaning with shampoo or odk rotate diuted 20-1

It's not the drying thats the problem, it's if they get wet within the 24 hour cure period then there is a high risk of water spotting
