Easy on and off and it works. I applied this sealant after washing my wheels and using a polish on them. On my next wash the wheels had very little dirt on them. They were a breeze to clean.

Me and my cynicism. Here I thought, "this is just a repackaged paint sealant to call it wheel sealant". "Hype". "Totally unnecessary and a waste of money".
THEN, I BOUGHT SOME! Wow! I have struggled with heavy brake dust on my BMW's and a Benz for years. This almost eliminates my problem. This has GOT TO BE the most UNDERRATED product ever. I will never go without some of this in my detailing cabinet. My wheels are so slick and smooth after 2 apps that brake dust doesn't have a chance to cling to the wheels.

I absolutely love this stuff. I applied with a microfiber glove. Remember a little goes a long way. Really added a layer of shine to my gloss black clear coated wheels. Next time I will do two coats just because. I have already recommended this to several people.

This product is great. It smells good, it goes on very easy, it is NOT hard to take off. Keep in mind if you have a lot of spokes it might take a while to get in everywhere but the product itself wipes off pretty easy. It gave decend shine, but what i love is 1 week later when my rims were dirty all i needed was towel and some water, cleaned all 4 wheels in like 2 min, so is it worth it? Heck yes it is, want to keep your wheels clean then this product is a must.

I must say, this was the first wheel sealant I've ever used. I am highly impressed! This stuff goes a long way, I've had my 8oz tub for over a year and I swear it's going to last 5 or 6 years with 3 vehicles getting sealed twice a year! This stuff works great. It smells awesome, goes on easy, removes fairly easy. It's quite a bit of work if you have a really detailed rim, but totally worth it. FTW!!

This was my first time trying a wheel sealant and i am sold on it. The 8oz. plastic jar goes a long way and is super easy to apply. I did use too much product on my first try but it was not a problem to make the pink color disappear (blend in). This product smells great too (strawberry), my friends were impressed with the ease of application.

This product is a lifesaver. Make sure you apply it to all 4 wheels. This stuff goes on easy, but comes off with a little elbow grease if you are using a microfiber towel. This stuff really keeps brake dust off too. Make sure you do all 4 wheels.

I've used stuff I found at adv auto and pepboys and have been disappointed. I took a chance here and it certainly works better than anything I've use. I tended to use this every 1.5-2 months. Be warned though: intricate wheels will be a pain to do. I have a simple design, but a lot of spokes. It's a little annoying.

I put one coat on the wheels on my Racecraft mustang today. Looks very good. Seems to have locked in the shine. They are silver-ish painted wheels. Easy-on butter-like paste made applying a breeze. Buffed off by hand with no problem. Interesting smell.

I only recently became aware of a number of items available in the area of Auto Detailing. Up until now I was happy buying products at the local Auto Parts Store. I didn't know products like this existed. Holy Cow what a find. I will admit first I don't have anything to compare this to except the concept of just cleaning the brake dust off of a wheel and waiting for it to build up again.

This product is easy to use. Apply and remove per the instructions. What is amazing is the result. In addition to a great looking wheel, brake dust wipes away easily. I'm expecting to apply this about twice a year based on my reading. That being the case, I would expect that my purchase of one container will last me several years.

I finally got around to applying the Poor Boys World Wheel sealant to my set of American Racing aluminum winter rims. After just 1 coat, I could literally feel the difference it made to the rims. I am really hoping this helps deter the oxidation our harsh winters have on my rims. I'll be sure to apply this to my summer rims during winter (as its easier with the rims unmounted.) 5 star product! And it smells so good... I want to eat it!

Product works phenomenally. It smells great and makes maintenance cleanings quick. The only downside, like others have mentioned, is that it goes on slow; that is hardly a reason NOT to use it however because the results are worth it!

Long term review. Been using this product for 2 years.

My go to wheel protectant. Easy on and relatively easy off.
Makes chrome and aluminum wheels shine. Makes painted wheels glow.

Great durability for nasty winters and dusty dirty summers.
Dirt comes right off. Just to be clear, there is some stuff that can get on your wheels that will require a little scrubbing (like brake dust in nooks and crannies, or hard to reach inner drums), but areas you can get to regulary clean right up with very little effort.

Durability lasts a long time. Did my sister in law's BMW wheels that were notorius for black brake dust. She never washes her car (don't get me started...). I saw it a year after I did the wheels - filthy, but not as much brake dust as she used to have before I did the wheels (they used to get black, now they were just a dusty grey). I wiped my finger on one of them and the dirt came right off - like I had done the wheels a couple of weeks before, and not a year before.

Highly recommended for shine and durabaility.
Use 2 coats.

It's an okay product with a good smell. It goes on easily and comes off just as easily. But, I haven't found, despite repeated applications, that it really offers protection so good that brake dust will just roll off after washing with soap and water. I've always had to use a brush. But, I do like the product, and I really like that it leaves a very slick and glossy finish. It's a good sealant, and for the money, you get a lot of product that will go a long way.

This is a great product. I had been using Collinite 845 on my G37 wheels (and on the rest of the car), and all I really expected from this sealant was better durability. But I've been amazed at how clean it keeps my wheels, much slicker that what I was using. Not as easy as a wipe-on-walk-away product, but very good for a wipe-on-wipe-off.

This was the first wheel sealant I bought and it's a big jar so I'll be using it for a while. application is actually a lot of work since it takes a while to get it all off. Recommended for cars with uncomplicated wheels. Nooks and crannies on mine made me spend extra 30 minutes. To put 2 layers is just a pain in the A.

Durability is pretty good, though nothing spectacular. After about 3 weeks so far it's still repelling brake dust like a champ.

After this jar is done I'll be using Opti-Seal for its simplicity and cheap price. It's a true wipe on-walk away type sealant that'll be super easy to do on my complicated wheels.

Poorboy's World Wheel Sealant is one of my favorite auto detailing products. I drive a 2006 Mercedes CLS 500 with AMG twin spoke wheels. I have always taken care to clean them well, but finally decided to up my game and give them a polish and seal. I applied Poorboy's World Wheel Sealant with a red foam applicator pad (after washing well and polishing the wheels). There is nothing to it. Just dip the applicator pad into the product and wipe it on your wheels. The less you use the better, so just make sure you get some on there… and then wipe it off. I used a clean microfiber all purpose towel to remove it. My wheels sparkled, but more importantly they stay looking nice longer. My brakes throw off some serious dust, but they look better longer and are easier to clean after using Poorboy's World Wheel Sealant. I haven’t even had to reapply it yet, and it has been two months. A quick wash is all I need to get my wheels looking great again. For those who care, the scent is also pleasant.

FYI, I work slowly but giving my wheels the full treatment took almost and hour per wheel and included;
jacking each wheel so I could get to the wheel well and full tire
wash
polish
seal
treat tires

This stuff is pretty cool! Ideally, my system for wheels is P21S cleaner --> Poorboy's polish with sealant --> Wheel sealant. The polish with sealant gives a nice smooth polished surface, then the wheel sealant just enhances it even more! The container says to apply multiple coats for better results if you so please. So being curious enough to do so, I applied as many as 3 coats of this stuff on my painted rims; the smooth/slickness of the surface after wiping off the 3rd coat was ridiculous! After driving on the highway for a few days, I saw the brake dust on my rims, and ran my finger over a section; all the dirt lifted onto my finger and the surface was the same smooth/slickness as before! Awesome product! Smells amazing too!

Poorboys Wheel Sealant is an amazing product that everyone needs to own when they wash their vehicle. Application is really only needed once a year, with a couple coats on each wheel. I still have the same tub that I bought a year and a half ago. I autocross my car, and with the excessive dust build-up after each time, having this sealant is a life saver.

Removing takes some time, as when you leave it to dry to a haze, it takes effort removing it because the sealant is already "hardened". I took some quick detailer to each wheel and removal process was much easier.

Pros:
Fantastic Protection (Rarely need P21s anymore to remove dust)
Long Lasting (Only need 1 application per year for protection)
Long Shelf Life (Still on the same container from a year ago)

Cons:
Removal Process (Could be tedious if left on too long)

I will admit, I was reluctant to buy this as I've had similar items in the past that failed to work. But this product is different, and has made me a believer!! I have a 2011 Camaro, these cars are notorious for brake dust. But somehow, someway, this product keeps it off and my wheels and keeps them clean for weeks at a time, even when driving through rain. This has become one of my favorite products, I will never not have this in my cleaning arsenal.

Excellent smell, great wheel shine, but difficult to apply. I would definitely recommend removing the wheel from the vehicle to apply the sealant most effectively. I will do this after I pull the summers and replace them with my winters, and vice versa.

This stuff works pretty good. Smells great, fairly easy to use, and yes the color does make it easy to see for removal. I had to learn the tough way about "thin is in". Apply very thin and the results will dazzle you. Requires a little bit of work to remove. Not a strictly wipe on, wipe off. Makes my polished Cobra rims POP, nice deep shine on my wifes black center TSW's, and a deep gloss on my trucks grey painted rims. Does an okay job at repelling brake dust, but makes my next clean up easier as all I used is a Daytona Speed Brush and car wash soap and water.

Excellent product.
I read all of the positive reviews about this product here and across the internet. Seemed a little pricey (not a lot, just a little) for something 'just' for my wheels, but I thought I would give it a try as cleaning wheels is such a pain - in general, and especially with caked on brake dust.

Wow! It worked and is worth every penny (if not more).
Easy to apply; easy to remove and buff.
Cleaning my wheels is so much easier now - even when I have not washed them for weeks. Saves me a lot of time and frustration.

I put on two coats. Seems to last long as it has been on my vehicles for months and shows no sign of not working.

Highly recommended.

I hate to ruin the perfect rating for this sealant........ but unfortunately I am. I wanted to use this product a few times before making a review and after using it 4 times on 3 different cars, Ive made a decision.

I think its important first to understand each persons level. Im not a pro detailer, Im an enthusiast. I keep my G37 and my wifes RAV4 pristine, and I detail my friends cars when I have a free weekend. Im all about maximizing protection and effect, while minimizing steps and time. I used to only use Menzerna polishes, but I fell in love with the Megs 105 combo and I plan on using M105/205 for all my detail jobs and it turned a 3 step process into a 2 step. I wanted a wheel sealant that was quick to apply, quick to remove, and provided good protection. Currently, it takes me just under an hour to do a complete 2 bucket wash, microfiber dry, and put on a QD or spray wax and buff off. Overall, it usually takes me 5-6 hours for my full polish routine on a car, which includes washing, P21s, claying, and a 2 step polish and then adding a sealant (curerntly using "Menzerna" FMJ).

I just did the stock 10-spoke wheels on my G37 for the second time and it took me about an hour to apply and remove the sealant. The stock 10-spoke wheels have a lot of nooks and crannies in them and removing the sealant takes a lot of time. My wifes RAV4 5 spoke wheels were much easier to apply and remove due to less intracacies. The product works and gives good protection, but for me it just takes waaaay too long to apply and remove it. I wanted a sealant to provide protection and to make my wheels look cleaner longer and to shine. It takes me maybe 10 minutes to spray my wheels clean, let it sit, and then brush clean them and they look fantastic so an hour to add sealant to the wheels didnt add up for what I was looking for.

I'll continue to use this for my wifes RAV4, but Ill be looking for something which is much quicker for my G37. If you are a pro or dont mind spending an hour on wheel sealant, then this product works and looks good. It just requires way to much time for my preference.

Keeps Matte Black wheels, well, Matte Black.
My issue was applying a sealant and losing the matte finish (ending up kind of glossy) on my wheels. After not finding any definite answer to my search, I decided to give this a try. Easy to apply and buff out. To me the wheels appear to have more depth while still being matte black. Going to be using on all my current wheels and wheels in the future.

I just cleaned my wheels for the first time after applying this wheel sealant, and I was so impressed I had to come on here and write a review. After four days of hard driving in my mustang cobra I went outside and just cleaned the brake dust off with nothing else but water and a rag. They look just like they did after I cleaned, polished, and sealed them four days ago. I've never cleaned any wheels so easily. It seemed like quite an expensive product before I purchased it, but it turned out to be worth it. Especially with how many coatings I think I can get out of the tub.

I wasn't convinced until I finally caved in and ordered a tub of this stuff. Now I have 4 tubs on my shelf, and I apply two coats every single week-end (as long as I have the time) - my OEM rims look brilliant. Better looking than any car wax or sealant on rims. It does slightly reduce break dust and make cleaning a bit easier, but if you stay on top of your wheels you may not notice a difference. I'm doing this for the shine, and that alone is worth it.

Yes I would buy this again but here are some things to keep in mind. If you have a ton of spokes this will be a pain to apply. Not because the product is hard to put on/remove but because you have to get the product in all the hard to reach spots. In my opinion I didnt feel that the product made my wheels look any better, but it will 100% make them easier to clean. I have applied this product to all my families cars so I dont have to scrub crusted on break compound off. If you are looking for a product to make your rims look better I dont think this is it, but if you are looking for something to make them easier to clean buy this now. With this product all you need is some water and a mit to remove any dirt.

I decided to use this product as it was recommended to me over Wheel Wax. All I can really say is WoW!

This stuff is super easy to use. Application is very easy with a foam pad spritzed with a quick detailer. Followed instructions and allowed to dry for a few minutes. Removal with MF towel could not be easier even after coating entire wheel and letting sit...wipes right off! The ease of use is incredible.

I have used Wheel Wax for years with good results, but it was somewhat more difficult to use compared to the Poorboy's. The finish on the wheels is amazingly more slick than the Wheel Wax and I did a side by side comparison.

Wheel Wax is a great product, but the Poorboy's ease of use and slickness has me sold. Not sure of overall protection as I just applied, but sure it is compaable to Wheel Wax. Plus this stuff also smells pretty good if that is a concern.

My new wheel sealant of choice.
