Hi is this still the best ceramic coat for wheels? Or has it been superseded?

Try Gyeon rim, you get twice the amount of product for basically the same price, proper application suede cloths and block with a dropper. I've always used C5 but thought it was starting to be ridiculously priced compared to Gyeon, went over and I wouldn't go back. I actually think Gyeon is better in terms of repellency.

On the subject of wheels their Gyeon tire is bloody good stuff too.

Tell me about it, there's some good suggestions on here though, do you have a zero ppm filter yet? That thread got my wallet open, very very worth it though.

Rim turned up today and applied it - went on well and buffed off easy! Leaving it to cure overnight.
