I've only used Planet Polish, C5 and Sonax. Last year I had C5 and Sonax diagonally and the C5 did slightly last longer before I used Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer on them, for me C5 is just not worth the extra cost, and if I couldn't get the Sonax I'd purchase Planet Polish..

Wheel Sealant

^^^^^^^ You are aware that C5 isn’t about beading so it’s still working just doesn’t look like it. Personally mine still going strong after 15 months. ie the dirt just powerwash’s of and brake dust never sticks I haven’t needed a fallout remover on my wheels since it was applied

Agreed - the measure of whether a wheel coating is working is how well it releases muck with minimal / non-aggressive cleaning.

Dlux would be my choice, had it on my last wheels, cleaning them was a doddle

I've used the following and rate them highly

Gyeon Rim
GTechniq C5
Sonax Extreme Wheel Coating.

Gyeon is my favourite for the long lasting protection and ease of cleaning, with Sonax being excellent for ease of use and provides a good 5/6 months protection.

Sonax Wheel coating?

So is Sonax Xtreme Wheel Rim Coating Nano a good product?

I am really in need of keeping my BMW 403 alloys protected,I am want the finish to be preserved as much as possible, as they are diamond cut, and they are very well know to corrode.

I am not really fussing over beading or shine, I will achieve this with other products, BSD comes to mind.

Thanks
