My first wash after appying Opti-Coat

This is wheels only. I have not applied to paint.

After it rained for about 15 seconds at my house I left for work so about 5 miles of road was wet. I did not drive in any rain.
Two days after the rain I sprayed the wheels and none of the dirt sprayed off, I had to brush all the dirt off.
There was no difference between before appyling and after appyling.
They say if you clay and polish it is gone but never say nothing sticks to it like the oem clear coat.

Yeah, I wasn't going to pick some opti up based on whether dust didn't stuck, but rather keeping the dust from contaminating the painted wheel surface.

Opti coat isn't witch craft for your wheels. It just makes cleaning them a breeze with some soap and water
