That's a bit tricky as the wheel sealant that a lot of people go for is the Poorboys stuff but it has a glossy finish.

Poorboys too on my blades
Note it’s a sealant you want not polish

I've used FinishKare FK1000 on the rims of my cars for some years now, and I have been very pleased with its durability.

As with most things in the detailing world, the prep work is important.

Giving the rims a thorough clean will pay dividends in the long run.

After washing and rinsing, use a Tar remover, follow that with an iron fallout remover, another rinse to remove all the contaminants, a quick dry, then apply a couple of coats of the sealant of your choice.

C5 Been on my blades since I purchased the car, including the carbon fibre trim parts and brake calipers.

Never used any polish or tar removers or anything. Nothing sticks to it. ... Damp microfibre cloth is all it takes to bring them back to new.

One coat has been on for 3.5 years! I will get round to removing the wheels and doing another application, not that it needs it, just because I can.

It may be the most expensive product, but believe me when I say I've used pretty much everything out there when it comes to detailing/cleaning cars and bikes... You get what you pay for...
