Hi Guys,can anyone recommend some good products for cleaning and protecting my aftermarket alloys?really want them to "pop" once all cleaned and polished/waxed/sealed or whatever,any recommendations? thanks YJ
g-technics c5 is great weapons grade protectionhttp://gtechniq.com/shop/3s-for-cars/exterior-coatings/c5-wheel-armour/as for cleaning most wheel cleaner do a good job but if you want to do as little work as possible then you need iron-x and poorboys spray and rinse wheel cleaner , bith just spray on and jetwash off leaving a touchless clean rim
well took a trip to the local halfrauds last night, bought some autoglym products, got the wheel cleaner, tyre dressing and alloy sealant, went home and washed the car, wheels and polished the alloys and they look great, still not sure how long or how good the protection is so might invest in some of the C5 as you say or smartwax rimwax?
Having successfully removed the scratch from my door, I brilliantly went and scraped one of my wheels at the weekend - fortunately it is a very light scrape and not gone through to the metal, but I know it's there and would like to touch it in - does anyone know what colour the wheels are (looks close to blade silver) or if there is a touch pen to repair this? My Nissan dealer doesn't have one specifically for this, though they are enquiring.

It has arrived and I have applied it. The good; a fairly good size bottle of paint is provided in the pack and the colour match isn't bad. The lighting conditions will ultimately determine how noticeable the finish is however. The paint is slightly darker and in certain lighting is marginally noticeable; in others it more than takes the eye away almost seemingly blends in.
In the absence of a factory match or better advice; I am satisfied for now - though the marks I touched in were very small lacquer blemishes caused by a stone or similar.
Thanks again - mine arrived and I've cleaned up and painted the scuff. It's not as bad now and I think that once it's cured and I've used some rubbing compound and then polished it, it will not be noticeable.
