Collinite 915 (aka Marque D'Elegance)

It was time to clean and rotate the tires and while I was at it, gave the Red Jelly Bean a coat of Collinite 915 (aka Marque D'Elegance). This is a really nice, old-fashioned wax. I apply and buff-out by hand. I like the feel of this wax because it feels like it's breaking away under the microfiber. It's a nice satisfying feel. It gives a nice shine and is almost as durable as the 476 which is my go-to wax -especially for winter prep. Last August, the wheels were thoroughly cleaned and waxed with Collinite 476. The brake dust and dirt washed out of there effortlessly. The backside of the wheels were still repelling water but they got another coat of 476 for good measure. Ray

The results are rewarding but, my main reason for doing it is because the tires are being rotated and it would be kinda foolish not to. The tires are off... might as well apply some elbow grease and finish in style. I wish I had a better outdoor setup for pulling the tires and working on them. The whole process take place on a driveway with a slight slope. Ray

Good idea! Probably not as durable but I have some Yellow Tech wax I haven't used in a few years. Plan to coat on the next rotation.

Just coated my summer wheel setup (black gloss Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2s in 17x8 with 215/40-17 Federal RS-RRs) with some Wolfgang 3.0 Sealant before installing them.

Go for it... Just use whatever wax you have on hand. Once you get them clean and put some wax or sealer on them, they are so much easier to maintain and clean. Ray
