Griot's Garage Spray-On Wax
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll order some next time I order pads for my orbital. I detailed the entire car today and went ahead and waxed the wheels. Doesn't take very long when the wheels are clean. I clayed the entire car. It's amazing how much crap adheres to a new car's paint.
