Finally!!......I've tried everything...rejex, etc and up til now I kept losing the battle. The guy who details my car suggested Armor All Wheel Protectant........I used the stuff two weeks ago and it is amazing!...the wheels have stayed clean through multiple car washes without doing anything.....and it's 7 bucks for a can....still seems to good to be true.......

And uh you actually used the car during that period?? Tell us more!!!

I barely make it home from the wash with the wheels still clean.

I use Wheel Wax (from the BMW dealer) with good results.

I find wheel wax to be mediocre at best. But then again my theory is that the brake discs on the 535 xi with 17 inch wheel are too close to the wheel which causes lots of the brake dust to stick.

I was a real proponent of RejeX for a year or more. Then I found "Honda Glare Professional Polish". This is Honda's rebranded version of Glare Professional Polish (Same stuff, just a Honda name on it) and is available online at a lot of Motorcycle accessory suppliers. Can probably get it at local Honda dealerships as well.

On wheels, this stuff is so slick, nothing sticks to it. I have applied it to paint and it does an even better job than RejeX at repelling bugs. Nothing seems to stick to it tightly. Application is easy and it holds up.

Interesting. Further research yielded this endorsement...

Good enough for me to place an order. Not concerned with brake dust since Axxis pads on the 650 totally solved that problem, and will shortly on the 535, but bugs are an issue as summer approaches.

Thanks....

I didn't want to make any outlandish claims..... But I have to agree with the review. I've been using Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant and loved it. But the Glare is a better product. It really looks unbelievable on my cinnamon red Volvo XC/70.
