    I detailed my truck over the weekend since purchasing my new Wheels last month. Decided to apply Chemical Guys Max Coat Wheel Guard wheel wax. So far no complaints. Easy to apply, and leaves a nice finish... Even on my matte bronze FN Wheels!

    Anyone have any experiences they like to share with this product? pros and cons?

    Haha Looks like it right? No, I just wanted to see if anyone had ever used this product before...

    The product is actually green and wanted to get a scope of any I'll effects on painted wheels.

    Nice looking wheels! When I picked up the TRD Beadlocks last year I purchased a bottle of Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Wheel Coating from a sale on Autogeek. It supposed to protect the wheels for 18 to 24 months. All I do is wash my wheels with soap & water & they look brand new. I took my wheels off this spring (one year of driving) & gave the barrels a good wash with soap & water. The brake dust came right off, good as new. The coating does not give the matte finish a glossy look either. Definitely worth it if you want to try something different in the future. Make sure you catch a good sale though. The normal price is steep, IMO.

    Ok, great! Thank you. I'll definitely look into it.
