Products for ceramic coating wheels

I'm about to get some new wheels and want to ceramic coat them before tires are installed. Was thinking of going with Adams Ceramic Wheel Coating but wanted to ask the community here if you have any other recommendations.

for reference: https://adamspolishes.com/shop/adams...ating-kit.html

Thanks!

If I were to do 2-3 coats. How many wheels can I typically do before the bottle runs out?

I did two coats on a set of wheels, two coats on an exhaust, and still have 1/3 of a small 15ml bottle leftover.
You do not need to cake this stuff on. Thin even coats.

Don't bother trying to layer with DLUX. It isn't needed and it doesn't like to layer. Others IDK.

A little off topic but maybe someone knows.

How do you get this stuff off the wheel?

A friend cautioned me to mount tires before ceramic coating wheels. Ceramic coating makes it difficult for wheel weights to stick.

Either way. How much effort you want to use and money you spend. Same as everything else. If you use a DA then use a small diameter one.

Makes sense. Mhrmm. I should check if my weights are still attached then huh ahahah. I had them mounted last week and put in about 250 miles. But it doesnt wobble so I'm assuming they're still on
