Collinite 845 is a great wax, but the problem with it and all carnauba waxes is that they don't hold up in heat heat applications, such as car wheels. They just melt off. That's why synthetics are more long-lasting. At least that's been my experience and what I've read. I know everyone has there favorite things when it comes to detailing; I've had a lot of success with Klasse products, particularly Klasse SG for wheels.
