Hi, It might be worth contacting Tom at TK Detailng to see what he has to say. You can get his number off of his website.

Personally, Dragons Breath is good stuff, but I found Waxtec fallout is just as good and its cheaper and I think we get a club discount from them.

But you will need something like Valet Pro Bilberry gel as a general cleaner. Or you can use Britemax Grimeout. I use it as a pre-cleaner in a diluted form.

Then you possibly something like Poor Boys wheel sealant to give them some extra protection, especially with winter coming and it will make them easier to clean in the future. 3 or 4 layers usually does the trick

I also polish mine with Britemax Blackmax to give them an extra shine

Hi guys,thanks for the recommendations,I try and keep them as clean as poss so may just try some of the valet pro bilberry for now see how that goes,but the sealant sounds good especially with the winter looming,some of these products seem to smell bad as well,rotten eggs! By the way were do you usually purchase your products,does TK detailing sell stuff ? Thanks

My detailing guys is 5 mins drive from me and he is more than happy for me to trying new products or tell me about them

There is no point in me protecting my rims as they need a refurbishing

I am more worried about the paint and getting my winter tyres on

Tom at TK maybe able to get hold of the Waxtec and Britemax stuff, but you may have to go and collect it from him in Basingstoke. You can the Valetpro bilberry from somewhere like www.theultimatefinish.co.uk or eBay or www.CleanYourCar.co.uk
