      Made a set of nasty looking wheels appear brand new. Covered small chips and scratches but the prep is a Pain if you do it right. I would reccomend doing the proper wheel prep for best appearance and longevity with this product.

          Comments about Duplicolor Wheel Coating, Clear, 11 oz. Aerosol:

          Just used this clearcoat for the first time on my wheel covers (hubcaps)because the Duplicolor silver spraypaint I use gets very dirty with road and brake dirt.
          This product goes on well, dries very quickly, and so far has does its job of stopping dirt and grime buildup. Only giving it 4 stars because it hasn't been on there long and don't know how long it will hold up, especially with rain and snow on the way.

            This product is great and does the job if used properly. I used it to clear coat my 18" aluminum wheels. First I used Mother's Aluminum Polish on the rims to make them shiny and then used the clear coat. Where you do the coating and humidity conditions are very important. I coated the rims inside my garage, away from the sun. The humidity was at about 35% and temp 55 degrees. If the humidity is too high you will run into problems! I used 2 coats, both of which were pretty light, 15 minutes apart and they came out great! No runs or spots.

            Comments about Duplicolor Wheel Coating, Clear, 11 oz. Aerosol:

            This is a fantastic product when used properly. The 1 star reviews def used this incorrectly. I've had the same experiences as them when I first learned how to paint cars. If the product yellows, you put it on too thick or the temperature was too hot when you used it. The cloudyness happens when you've got too much moisture on the surface when spraying the product. Either your top coat was not dry enough, the temperature was too humid, or you wet sanded and it did not dry. These issue also happen with the most expensive automotive paints using a spray gun and air compressor, it is just the nature of how this works. It needs the proper conditions, and proper prep and use. If you've never painted a car before, practive on some junk material until you get it right before blaming the product and claiming it does not work. I've had nothing but exceptional results with this product on rims and touch ups AFTER I learned what I was doing and the proper conditions. BEFORE that, I had the same experiences as the 1 star reviewers.

            I can see how some people would have an issue using this you need to pay attention to what you are doing! if you are not carfull you will end up with "dry spray" the paint dries in the air then lands on wheels and that looks like sandpaper if this happens no big deal just wait for it to dry then hit it with a red scotch brite pad till smooth then re-spray it is important to take wheels off so you can realy watch it.product goes on with yellow tint and dries clear I think the others may have laid it on to thick or didn't wait for it to clear up before laying on another coat.I used the scotch brite between every coat on my magnum 500 wheels and the results are perfect smooth as glass.3 base coats and 5 clear coats I didn't want to have to do it again

            Painted my wheels white then used this so-called clear and now I have a yellowish tint on them.[...]Do not use this on light colors.

            Tried it on my rims to increase the shine. The opposite happened it was not clear it dulled the rims to a gray finish. Looked like I spray painted my rims with a flat spray paint.

                A:

                You should be able to just use primer or a clear coat paint to seal it from rust

                Bad product it says it is clear though when you spray it on it has a gray tint to it. I was very dissatisfied with it i thought it would increase the dull shine on my rims.It turned out the opposite of that it looked like I had taken a gray spray paint to it so needless to say now I have to buy paint thinner to remove it.
