Extra gloss protection on alloys?

Dear AG,

I have had my alloys recently refurbished and was just wondering if EGP is any good to put onto alloys?

If so, whats the best way to apply? Just the same shampoo > SRP > EGP ?

All the best,
Tom

Yes, you could use EGP or HD Wax. If they have just been refurbed they probably won't need polishing, just wash, dry and apply EGP.

Or even better, assuming your wheels are silver, you could apply Autoglym Wheel Protector instead. This is a spray on coating that repels brake dust and dirt for up to 6 weeks. Easy to apply, just wash, dry, spray and walk away. No need to buff or anything.

Well we don't have a shelf life on most products, there isn't anything to go wrong in EGP really, it should be pretty stable. How old do you think it is?

As a guess about five years. Been out in the shed through hot summers and freezing cold winters. I tend to store things in the house now. Thanks
