Poorboys Wheel Sealant

Looking at buying a pot of this Heard all good stuff about it. Was wondering what people thoughts are on here about it?
Does it last very long? and easy to use?

I have a tub of that and tbh I don't use it anymore.
I didn't think it lasted very long and was a pain to apply in comparison to a spray sealant.

I put three coats on but I doubt it lasted a couple of weeks, so I have a lot left that will never be used!

It was fairly easily to apply.

I looked at it, but in the end opted for Race Glaze Nano wheel sealant - very easy to apply and leaving an hour between coats means you get approx 6 months protection...

I have this stuff too, as mentioned it smells good, but it takes a while to apply and doesn't last very long. I moved on to TDG Rasberry Wheel Seal which is far superior, super easy spray on wipe off. I've now moved on again to Gtechniq C5 which is fantastic!

race glaze nano wheel seal, spray it on clean dry wheels, leave a few mins and buff then 1h later do the same again
2 layers will give you 6 months easy and you will only need to use a shampoo to clean them

Another vote for race glaze, I find it works very well and is easy to use.
