Fast Wax?

What's your take on it? Some salesman sold my dad a case of 12 cans for $100 at a gas station.

Just want to know if it would be safe to use on our cars.

There is no way I would use that on my car. Maybe on the wheels.

I wouldn't use this on my ten year old Jeep beater.

Looks like being skeptical saved me from using it on the paint. I guess I will just save it for my chrome wheels. Thanks Yorgi and FredoinSF.

In general avoid waxes that contain cleaners. Cleaning/polishing should be a step on its own and it only needs to be done once every year or two if you keep the car waxed.

So, all the grime goes on the rag and then gets ground into the paint? Nope.

All the dirt that's on the car, ends up on the washing/polishing rag and then gets rubbed/scratched into the paint. Might as well start off with a dirty rag.

They do those once i awhile. I bought it before then give them as freebie for the neighbors. Things selling like those will never gain my trust.

I see that stuff all the time at the gas stations. They always look at me and my car and never approach to sell they only say " wow nice car must be fast".
They never once have even tried to spray it on my car or demo it. I see them do it to the cars around me and I wondered why. Then I thought maybe they are trained to stay away from high end cars as to not cause damage to them. So just seeing that tells me that it's not meant for our cars.

About a few years ago at a gas station, they demoed the product on my dad's Lexus wheels. I didn't buy into it, but unfortunately they got my dad last time he was filling up.

I have this and use it on my wheels. I keep a can in the trunk with some rags to clean the brake dust off after driving to a show or a meet, etc. Definitely don't use on the rest of the car.

I just used this on the wheels yesterday and I think it's fine on the wheels.

I think spray wax is a good idea for wheels. I hate waxing wheels so anything to reduce the work involved getting wax into the spokes is a plus.
