Regualr carnuba wax won't hold up to the heat and will melt away. a polymer will be able to hold up to the heat.

I use Klasse on the everything. I wouldn't buy it just for wheels though.

Re: Waxing your Rims......Best products.... (MkIII Vr6)

THE ONE AND ONLY PRODUCT YOU SHOULD REALY USE IS WHEELWAX!
It is a cleaner, polishing, protective wax. Once you apply it, it makes a day and night difference next time when you clean the brake dust!
I think that the cheapest place to buy the wheel wax is at http://www.tirerack.com

Do you sell the stuff or something?

How do these qualities differentiate Wheel Wax from the aforementioned products?

For Zaino users, use the Zaino. Makes them shine great and very easy to keep clean.

A. Zymol is a carnauba based wax, is it not?
B. Except for racing (the more brake dust the better!), how do your wheels get hot enough for carnauba to "burn" off? What is it, like 180*F or something? My wheels never get that hot on the street.
