Using wax on rim shouldn't have any other side effect as far as I know, maybe sifus here can advise if there are any smile.gif To remove old wax, I would simply use APC / degreaser / diluted dish soap. I suppose you can use cleaner wax as well, but not too sure if it can remove old wax or just add on new layer of wax on top of old wax.

Btw, anyone ever tried applying dressing (something like carpro PERL) by spray bottle in area like wheel Wells? Is it effective?

I applied Carpro PERL on my wheel wells before, it gives back a nice black finish on the arches. However, the applicator or towel u use for the application or buff-off would end up quite dirty. Make sure the applicator u use is not the one u sayang.

I see. I presume you didn't take off the wheels to apply? Saw some in YouTube video they just spray the dressing, seems more convenient to apply as you don't need to cloth or applicators (or take off the wheels), but I am not sure how effective spraying dressing is. Hmm..

Nope, too much hassle. Besides, rims tightened by machine often are much tighter than what our hands with wrench can do, so I prefer not to mess with it.

That will be intense + OCD level of detailing already if remove wheels as well to access the wheel arches.

How nice if able to do so but gotta make do with just finding a brush or application and hoping arms are long and flexible enough to slot in between the tyres and wheel arches to detail. biggrin.gif

Actually the semi-OCD way is plainly to get a car jack and lift up enough of the car to create more space between the wheels and arches, then most likely any hand or arm can go in to apply the entire arch. Once the tyre is just a little bit off the ground, that is all the space u can get (which is plenty). Not necessary to remove the wheels for it.

Get this is more than enough:

Get this if u are extra lazy to crank:

Hand to heart, I am the lazy man, and lazy men thinks the most efficient way of doing things, lol. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

does it last long / durable? i'm looking for a long lasting coat one since the rims are yet to install, that would be easier to apply i supposed.

Mmm, if u do a hard degreaser wash on the wheel wells until clean enough to kiss, the the PERL could last a little longer. However, if u wanna spray into the arch just as is without really thorough cleaning, there isnt much durability to speak of. I think have to be realistic in expectations of any protections for wheel arches as alot of road dirt, mud water and grime will just whack off any protection u put on with relative ease.

All is not lost though, the PERL is highly dilutable, so very value for money that u can reapply over and again without feeling wallet pinch. And the blacker look on the arches does help make your rims pop out. smile.gif

Sorry, think I misread your previous statement. No perl is not meant for painted stuff. For ur rims probably go with any wax or spray sealants that works with painted surfaces. However, just to be mindful also that rims also get alot of grime from road, so thereโ€™s only so much durable that u can put.
