Keeping your car looking its absolute best brings a great sense of passion and pride!
Your wheels can become covered in brake dust and road grime in no time at all, and no one likes the look of dirty wheels. Removing that brake dust and grime quickly and easily can, in some cases, be messy and difficult.
To solve this challenge, we've introduced Meguiar's Hot Rims Brake Dust Barrier. This spray on barrier provides a protective coating to help make cleaning your wheels quicker and easier. The protective coating created by Hot Rims Brake Dust Barrier lasts several weeks and mutliple car washes. Plus, it's safe on all types of wheels including chrome, painted and even polished aluminum.
Before applying Hot Rims Brake Dust Barrier, clean your wheels thoroughly using the appropriate Meguiar's wheel cleaner.
Since any remaining dirt or water could get trapped underneath the coating, make sure to completely dry your wheels before appyling the product to the wheel.
Holding the can approximately 6" inches away from the wheel, lightly spray the entire wheel to ensure complete and uniform coverage. Be careful not to over saturate as a little of this product goes a long way.
This product dries quickly to the touch. However, if you've applied too much product and there is a run, it is best to wipe it off immediately and re apply. If you wish to remove Hot Rims Brake Dust Barrier after it has dried, it is best to use rubbing alcohol since a typical wheel cleaner will not remove it.
The barrier will be completely cured within 1 hour and we recommend not touching the wheels during this time. That's all there is to it!
Remember, Hot Rims Brake Dust Barrier does not prevent brake dust. But now that your wheels have a protective barrier that lasts for weeks and multiple washings, it will be quicker and easier to keep them looking their absolute best without tough scrubbing!
The next time you have to clean your wheels, just spray on the appropriate wheel cleaner, and then simply rinse with a strong stream of water. No scrubbing, no brushing needed!
