Coat them before install! Or a cheaper easy way to seal them is Hydro...

I personally coated my wheels.. stays cleaner longer and as easy to clean as the paint.

Do the barrels too!

Hmmmmmm, so it definitely helps with brake dust? What would recommend for the going the coating route?

I like 22ple coatings (22ple VM1), carpro cquartz would also be very good!

It makes brake dust a non issue! (Cleaning it that is) no magic to eliminate brake dust except lo dusting pads. But there are excellent wheel cleaners for severe embedded brake dust.

With a coating and proper washing regimine, you will not have problems with break dust.

NO... $114L (1 Gallon of spray sealant)

Keep in mind this stuff is concentrated dilute 1 part Hydro to 3 part water... so in a 32oz spray bottle:

the 100ml bottle for 19.99 will make enough sealant to do your wheels many times over!

plus I have discount pricing, haha
