Need recommendation for spray wax for wheels

Currently use poorboys wheel wax. The only issue is that it takes too long to lay it on the wheels. I prefer a spray. If anyone is aware of a good spray wax for wheels, please share.

Believe it or not Armorall Wheel Protectant works very well and is much more readily available. It is likely not as robust as the Sonax Wheel Rim Shield but it works well at its price point.

Opti seal works great! Very easy to use.
Seals up surfaces for 3-5 months.

If you want a more permanent coating I would say got for Optimum Gloss or Pro coatings
Gloss :24-36 months
Pro: 5 year warranty

Poor Boy's Wheel Sealant and Chemical Guy Maxcoat Wheel Guard are two very good sealants.... though neither one is a "spray" version you're after.

Pretty much any spray wax you use on your car will work as a wheel protectant.... though longevity will not be on par with the earlier mentioned products which are specifically made for wheels.

I've been trying out a bottle of Green Clean Automotive Quick Wax Superior for a local vendor for about two weeks now and I'm very impressed with results.

Chemical Guys Optical Select High Gloss Sealant & Detailer is what in my arsenal. I've been using it on my car and wheels with top-shelf results for a while now.
