Can I drive while Opti-Coat is still curing on my wheels?

So I just got a tube of Opti-Coat from Phil@DD and want to tackle my ZCP wheels before I attempt the whole car.

Will the velocity and heat ruin the OC during the curing process on wheels?

A pic for a click!

I've read that Opti-Coat needs 24 hours to cure ...think about the brake dust when Opti-Coat is not 100 % dry !
BTW...amazing pic of SSII and the blue of the sky...just perfect man ....wallpaper pic.

Oh man, I didn't even think about brake dust settling INTO the Opti-Coat. Good call on that!

Thanks! IND did a really great job with the car and their photographer(The Stig's artistic cousin) is great

Why wouldn't you wait the curing period? Especially on rims...there's a reason why they are written on the bottle. Just saying

The instructions don't really say much and most info I found only say to avoid rain/don't wash it.

And... The M is my weekend car and it's the weekend
