Just want to check on something.

As per title, I've got my wheels ceramic coated with C5 and on my next routine maintenance wash, I'll be topping up the main bodywork with Gyeon wet coat, will it be ok to use it on the wheels to help the C5?

Yeah, no worries either way.

Personally I’d let C5 do it’s thing for a while, when the beading and sheeting slows down (6 months) I’d start to top it then.

I may have possibly read this wrong, so please don't bite.
I am quite confident you know full well how good C5 is. It's arguably the best product there is going and most used.
If you have doubt's about C5 or lost faith, why use it and feel the need adding another product to help the C5 which is an expensive product?
I have waxed many times unnecessarily, just because I loved to wax which is not going to hurt ant metal or paint protection, just overkill.
Apologies if I am confused, it's not hard to do

On my own black gloss wheels I clean them as I do with any other painted panel. I finish off using KC FSE and QD them as I would have done the rest of the car.
Works really well and helps keep them as good as you can expect, actually, better than you 'Might' alloys.

I love C5, really impressed but I was just wondering as you do. Just thought if it's a good idea as I have Geyon wet coat so thought while I'll use it on the cars main body work use it on the wheels, can't do no harm could it? Gonz has made a good call.

Since you can top C5 with C2v3 I see no reason why wet coat wouldn't just work in a similar way

I really half believed you were having a windup.
For sure it wont hurt, same as me with FSE, but that is only because I QD everything painted Calliper's too.
Even C5 as a stand alone is a blinding product and worth every penny IMHO.
I do heat my callipers up a bit too much at times, but there is zero discolouration on them.
