XPEL FUSION PLUS ™ Ceramic Coating Helps Prevent Brake Dust from Sticking to Custom Wheels

A nice set of wheels is often the finishing touch on a vehicle. In the same way, shoes complete an outfit and understanding the importance of keeping them clean. Unfortunately, maintaining a wheel's shine is a constant struggle, whether on a lifted 4x4 or a million-dollar supercar. Nobody likes getting down to scrub away miles of road debris, grime, and brake dust buildup from their car's wheels. But a car wash is only finished once the wheels shine as bright as the paint's clear coat. XPEL FUSION PLUS ™ ceramic coating is designed to solve both problems in one application that lasts for years.

XPEL's FUSION PLUS ceramic coating is designed for more than just protecting a vehicle's clear coat. Our product line of ceramic coating can also protect a vehicle's glass, interior, plastic trim, brake calipers, and wheels. More specifically, XPEL ceramic coating's hydrophobic properties help maintain a protected surface's shine while making it easier to clean. These two benefits are why Audi Avant collector Nishant (Nish) Pillai trusts FUSION PLUS ceramic coating when protecting the custom wheels on his cars.

Nish is no stranger to the benefits of XPEL products. Recently, he recently protected his rare collection of Audi Avant sport wagons in PPF, ceramic coating, and window tint. However, this past month, Nish took it up a notch with a unique project concerning his ultra-rare Nogaro Blue Audi RS2 Avant.

After finishing a yearlong mechanical refresh on the classic Audi sports wagon, Nish wanted to celebrate with a custom set of BBS LM wheels. The silver-faced 18-inch wheels were shipped over from Japan and modified with titanium hardware. Lastly, the hardware and center caps were powder coated in blue to match the Audi RS2 Avant.

What separates Nish from other car collectors is that he actually drives them on a daily basis. Therefore, he wanted the best protection for his custom wheels. FUSION PLUS ceramic coating is the best solution to help prevent road debris and iron buildup from sticking to and staining a vehicle's wheels. Over time, dust from brake pads can coat a wheel in unsightly gray, black, and brown staining.

Florida based detail shop Auto Paint Guard applied FUSION PLUS ceramic coating to Nish's custom BBS LM wheels. The thorough procedure involved coating the wheel's front and back in ceramic coating. As a result, the polished shine of the custom wheel will dance under the Florida sun. But, more importantly, it will be easy for Nish to keep his wheels looking brand new without excess elbow grease, thanks to its hydrophobic properties.

When asked why Nish is a regular client of XPEL, he said, "I always look for the best when it comes to my cars, and XPEL has proven and provided exactly that since day one. From the quality of the product to the excellent customer service provided by Chris and Ryan at Auto Paint Guard ."

XPEL FUSION PLUS ceramic coating will help ensure Nish's classic Audi RS2 Avant looks its best as it rolls through the streets of Tampa, Florida, rain or shine.
