Product Description

Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour will allow you to protect your rims with ease! C5 utilizes a unique chemical bond to form a coating over your rims, resulting in easier maintenance. This means that your wheels will repel dirt and brake dust like never before. One single application lasts up to one year and C5 is resistant to temperatures up to 570 degrees F. If that's not enough, C5 provides excellent stain and contaminant resistance properties! Use this Wheel Armour on regular painted rims, chrome, clear coated aluminum, and stainless steel items including wheels, bumpers, and engine parts. Pick up the Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour and protect your wheels today!

Application Information
  • Do not dilute
  • Apply at a temperature above 40 degrees F and not in direct sunlight
  • If you are applying indoors ensure that there is adequate ventilation and wear protective gloves
  • Ensure that the surface to be coated is entirely free from fats/oils or previously applied products. GTechniq PW Panel Wipe is recommended for this purpose
  • Use the lint free application pads supplied to spread the coating onto the trim
  • Because the coating forms its bond immediately it is very important you remove excess coating from the treated surface within 5 minutes of application
  • To remove residue we recommend a clean microfiber towel
  • Allow coating to cure for 12 hours

Professional Detailer Reviews

C5 has become our go-to wheel coating lately due to its ability to enhance the appearance of various wheel finishes, ease of application, and good protection. If you're still waxing your wheels many times each year, give yourself a break and try a durable wheel coating.

Remove all previous coatings from the surface to be treated. Dab the product onto the applicator, spread onto a single wheel and remove residue using a Gtechniq MF1 ZeroR Microfibre Buff Cloth (or similar towel like the DI Microfiber All Purpose Towel).

The C5 Wheel Coating is absolutely fantastic! Fortunately I didn't have to clean my wheels as some others have because they were new. My wheels are 14 spoke turbine wheels, so there was a lot of going in between the spokes to get the job done. I washed the wheel first with Simple Green 10:1 dilution, then used the Gtechniq PW Panel Wipe afterwards, dried them with a microfibre cloth one for each wheel. Then I waited about 30 minutes before applying the C5 Wheel Coating to ensure they were dry. So far they have not been wet, it's been dry in Houston, but they shine like a new silver dollar! Can wait to see them after a rain storm!

Totally pleased with the performance of C5. I was specifically looking for a product that would greatly reduce the tendency for brake dust to adhere to the rims. Besides the ability to shed dust and debris, I was surprised with the added shine, especially on the brake calipers.

Prior to the application, the wheels were removed and given full decontamination. Wash with Dawn, iron remover, clay bar, compound, and polish. The barrels were done with a small DA polisher, the rest by hand. CarPro Eraser was then used to remove any remaining polishing oils. Lastly, EXO v4 was applied over the C5.

Now, I can just use the fan setting on the hose nozzle and all of the brake dust on the outside surfaces gets sprayed off. If I could reach in between the spokes, it would clean inside the rims. I also use an electric pressure washer. Brake dust and debris is no match for it. The coatings work so well that I don't need to use wheel cleaner any more. Afterwards, a couple of spritzes with an SiO2 booster and you're back to where you started.
