Ceramic Wheel Coating

     In preparation for the upcoming Chrysler Nationals in Carlisle, PA I wanted to clean up our 2015 Hellcat wheels. We get a lot of brake dust (particularly in the front) which makes cleaning difficult.

 

This is what the wheel looked like before I started but after I washed it like I normally do on the car.

I started with Adams Wheel Cleaner to pull the iron off the wheel.

I then washed the wheel again with Adams Strip Wash. I clayed both the front and barrel of the wheel. After claying I used Adams Finishing Polish, a white foam pad, and my Rupes Mini to polish the barrel. I used a blue hex applicator with the Finishing Polish on the front of the wheel. I washed the wheel again to help remove the polish. I next moved on to the Adams Coating Prep and wiped down both sides of the wheel. I then applied the  Adams Ceramic Wheel Coating per the instructions. It went on and off super easy. To avoid high spots I rolled each wheel out into the sun so I could see what I missed. I also coated the calipers the same way (minus the polish).

 

This is after the coating and a coating of Adams Ceramic Boost.

I am more then pleased with the results! The coating itself was super easy to apply. The hard part is getting the wheel completely cleaned and polished. I can't wait to get the wheels dirty so I can see how well they clean up!
