Have a look at Wowo's Crystal Sealant. Currently still going well at the 7 month mark for me from a single coat and no top ups. I found it very easy to use and it isn't expensive. You can even mist it over the wheels when towel drying them if you want to boost the protection further.

Has it levelled off then Brian? I seem to recall the performance was dropping off a bit from the initial application?

On CYC they say use poorboys wheel sealant weekly for best results. A sealant needing to be applied weekly? If you had FK1000p or even Simoniz original you would not need to reapply for some months.

I have used PBWW and have to say I was happy with it. Maybe not as long lasting as some of the other stuff mentioned above but I didn't think it was too bad. Saying that my car is not a DD so I don't need it to be as durable. I found it easy on and off.

Would I buy it again? Probably not. More because I would like to try something else than it was a bad product.

Was a strange one steel. On the first update after 1 month the water behaviour looked poor. On the next check though it had improved greatly. Not quite sure what happened, possibly some residue or something still on the wheels for that initial check is all I can think of.

When I finish the testing I will be putting the photos up and you'll see what I mean. At 7 months now it's certainly not as round beading wise as it was at the 3/4 month mark.
