Permanent Wheel Coating -mud test [video]

Before these "new to me" wheels were mounted, I did a thorough cleaning inside and out. After drying them off I applied a permanent coating system.

Even polished or clear coated metals have pores. If you have gone a long time without cleaning brake dust in the past, you can appreciate how not having these pores(or a great improvement in the reduction) would have a great impact on how much easier it would be to clean wheels.

This coating works in that way. It is a nano-coating that can fill in those microscopic pores and leave you with much better protection.

The product is called Opti-Coat Pro. While you can't purchase this specific formula, you can get a similar one(not as strong or hard) over the counter(Opti-Coat 2.0).

I did an air brush application so that literally every single nook and cranny got protected.

Your video is listed as private.

Also, there was a guy on here who was debating coating his whole truck in that Opti-Coat stuff. Not sure if he went through with it...

You're on the other side of the country. I have no benefit to tell you this.

If you have a proper application of Opti-Coat Pro applied, you will not be less than blown away. It's one of those rare cases in life when the hype is met in reality. If you need a qualified pro to do it for you, I can shoot you a reference or two.
