Just put two coats of powerlock on my newly acquired wheels. I figured its better to do it prior to having the tires mounted since I have full access to all areas of the wheel. Hopefully brake dust will just rinse right off once these finally get mounted.

Awesome. I was just about to place my order in today. What did you use to apply the powerlock on the wheels?

Just applied by hand with a microfiber applicator. Waited 1 hour before removing. Then 24 hours later added another coat, waited another hour before removing.

^ very nice wheels. While nothing will completely stand up to brake dust, this should certainly help.

With the heat wheels have to stand up to due to braking, you might want to look into a metal sealant as they're usually formulated for higher temps. Blackfire Metal Sealant is one such example that's a real nice product.
Once again - beautiful wheels and post some pics once they're mounted

I'm not a Zaino fan. Average life, PITA to deal with. Pass. I've been using Klasse HGSG on my wheels lately and it's fantastic.

Billy, those wheels are BALLIN'!
