Brake Dust Repellent: Armor All vs Autoglym

Brake Dust Repellent Works Better Than Expected!
We have been using Armor All Wheel Protectant (Outlast) for a few months now and thought we would show how well it works. As a bit of a twist we also threw the Autoglym Wheel Protectant in for a comparison as well.
Current pricing on the Armor All Outlast - amzn.to/3aQdaJi. Although it performs similarly to the Autoglym, we'd recommend the Armor All as it will work on all wheels.

    my wheels are painted (dipyourcar) application. Will this product work as well for this kind of application?

      I think so. However it may be worth using it with caution. Just incase it reacts with the plastidip. I have the plastidip glossifier on my other cars wheels and dont have any issues with this. But the raw plastidip may be different.

    I started off with Armor All then switched to AutoGlym here in Canada...I want the wheel cleaning foam from Autoglym, Armor All has some out with theirs but Autoglyms stuffs been working out SO much better I find... Nice Vid.

      @Zero To 60 there about the same price where I am lucky for me, mind you they have taken some products off the shelf as of late....their Bird wipes for one..

      I’d say typically the autoglym range is better quality than armorall but it’s also more expensive. Well it used to be. I used to swear by the autoglym super resin polish.

      Thanks for confirming. We haven’t tried this on gloss black wheels yet. But my gloss gunmetal ones were fine. Bit of a shame. Did you contact armor all about it?

    Brake dust is horrible so anything that helps keep it off my rims is a bonus. My new BMW is a pain to clean with brake dust on the wheels so I will try the Armour All product. On my previous car, I replaced the brake pads with after market ceramic pads and that also makes a huge difference, as you would expect. Thanks for making the video guys.

      It seems to be a particularly bad on euro cars. But this definitely helps minimise it. Let us know what you think of it once, you have given it a go.

    I didn’t even know about this product. I’m getting me some, right away.

    Awesome video guys, just wondering how long one application should last before you need to do it again?

    • Zero To 60

      Basically we do it between washes. It just keeps your wheels looking cleaner between washes. However we find with the BMWs that have a decent coating on the paint, the wheels are normally the dirtiest part.

    Ill have to buy some, same wheels as mine. Still no O2 sensors, when I spoke to the nerang euro service manager, he said failed O2 sensors would not cause a miss fire!

    • Zero To 60

      They will cause the car to go in to limp mode. Not a miss fire that is correct. It may also cause it to shut cylinders down. But normally it’s just the warning light. You are getting o2 codes so they need doing anyway, then it will be on to the next issue 😛 hehe. Ohhh the joy.

    Good little video guys - i have used the Armour All product before and found it to work quite well, especially for European cars with the heavy brake dust.

      @Zero To 60 The M62 is still a nice engine and your car does look better than most other cars on the road. :)

      It's been such a good car, apart from when the heavens opened up on it. We have just finished painting the new bonnet and guards. We will have quite a few videos coming out on the e39 in the coming weeks. Unfortunately none of which will be a S62 swap........ yet.

    Just about to look for a alloy cleaner, with car washes and valets closing due to Covid19. Right on cue 👍 Daves car looks really nice, 👌

      This definitely keeps the wheels cleaner for longer. And like Dave mentioned in the video, it seems to make a barrier between the brake dust that does manage to stick, so when it is time to finally clean it, getting the dust off is easier as well.
