Hi guys,

just wondering what would be the best product to seal my new wheels for protection against brake dust and the elements, and hopefully make them easier to clean?

Now ordinarily I would use Poorboys Wheel Sealant but my new rims are painted gloss black (Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2) so not one of the conventional finishes.

So would a sealant designed for paint work be better e.g 1000P or Collinite 915?

Optimum optiseal mate is all you need, a little goes a long way. Its a clear thin liquid sealant will give you good durability. It can be layered for even coverage but 24hrs apart maybe. All you need then is normal shampoo washes to keep on top of them

I would go to a nano solution for longer results.
Try wolfs rim shield or gtechniq stuff, it is more easy now they are brand new and in the box.

Which bit mate ?

The poor boys or waxes?
a normal wax will only last a short time due to high temps that the wheels/brakes can generate. a dedicated sealant like gtechniq C5, optiseal or Wolfs rim shield are the way to go.

I've heard good things about it but haven't used it myself.

not used it myself but over on DW it gets great reviews, use on wheels and your bodywork, its a sealant and you can use a wax on top if you wish:D

Bilt Hamber AutoBalm..Very good and lasts almost forever..I might go back to this
However..I have Collinte Insulator wax on the winter alloys and so far its performing well...
Once the wax is fully hard and set its not affected by heat..
...although sealer is probably a better option IMO..
Hence me getting some more Optiseal in the New Year

Swissvax Autobahn :)

You could first coat the wheels with a ceramic or crystal coating, with them being brand new it's better to do this now! Then layer any other sealant of your choice on top. The Swissvax leaves a very nice wet looking wheel though, it's pricey but worth the money.
