Poorboys wheel sealant and collinite 845

Just wondering what the thoughts are on layering these products? I’ve used poorboys twice now and the first time gave good result as I laid it on thick but second was crap. Seems to get bad reviews on here.

Have 845 on at the minute and it’s decent after a month or so. Has anyone used them both? Also will 845 hold up, is it capable of withstanding high temps like fk1000p?

Not interested in any alternatives as I need to get through these. Cheers

845 won't last as long as fk but will do much better than poorboys, you don't need to put it on thick just a small amount goes a long way, i have used 845 on my wheels before and it's lasted a good couple of months but I haven't used any harsh chemicals to clean them

I really don’t like the Poorboys Wheel Sealant. The removal is painful. I could never make myself put two coats on my wheels. Not sure about 845. FK 1000p does hold up well to temperatures. I have switched to CarPro Hydro2. Just spray on and rinse off and get almost 3 months durability. Too easy.

I love the ease of applying PBWS and removing it. However, durability is quite poor IMO.

I actually quite like the Poorboys stuff. I put it on the day before I do a trackday and although it doesnt last too long the white wheels are still white.

If I was you I would put the 845 on and use the PBWS as a top layer if I knew I was going on track or for a good drive.

Perhaps do an experiment on each wheel to determine how each lasts then go from there?

Poorboys Wheel Sealant is one of the biggest jokes of detailing. It's a pointless product and you'd be better off with 845 or more or less any other wax or sealant. If you want a more dedicated wheel product but don't fancy the fuss of ceramic, get Wowo's Crystal Sealant. Lasts much longer than any wheel wax, is super easy to apply and you get loads for a very reasonable price. You can use it on the rest of the car too as a bonus.

I think the removal is totally painless, blink and you'll miss it!

Thanks fellas. Good to know for future once I run out of these. Will probably do a little test with a different combination on each wheel and see how I get on. Need to use it so might as well but it’ll probably get relegated to use on my GFs car

Pointless for the effort. I tend to cheat and use Sonax BSD after each wash when drying and it works surprisingly well.
