Which Wheel Sealant Poll

Hi Guys, been doing lots of research on wheel sealants, my wheels are semi-matt painted finish and diamond cut! So picking a wheel sealant is annoying me as most provide a gloss finish, so Gyeon Rim is winning for me. I would like to get your thoughts on which one you guys prefer.

Thanks in advance.

I use Raceglaze nano wheel sealant and it's very easy to use / apply and gives great results.

Spray on, wipe over, buff off, leave for an hour and repeat and with 2 applications, should get 6 month protection.

Bear in mind though, my alloys are diamond cut, but gloss finish

This is what I use on my diamond cut alloys

Gyeon Rim for me. Poorboys was ok, but only lasted a month at most. The gyeon on my octavia vrs wheels has been on for 12 months and is still holding on nicely.

TBF you have listed a number of wheel sealants with very different properties.

A bit like asking which LSP, a wax or a "ceramic type" sealant.

Both types have pros and cons such as ease and speed of use versus longevity.
e.g wax paste type are easy to apply, easy to remove if you mess up and quick to apply outside. Ceramics are more fussy, hard to remove if you misapply, need to cure in a dry environment for 24 hours plus, but have a plus side of added durability. Horses for courses.
