    I plan on correcting and coating my lbz at some point in the next month or so. As well as coating forged wheels.

    Is cquartz still a go-to product for ceramic coatings? There seems to be many different options now.

    Can the same ceramic coating be applied over forged wheels after polishing? Or should a sealant be used first?

    Thanks.

    I've had Gyeon MOHS+ with durabead on my 2016 Lexus IS350 F Sport for over 2 months now, and it was worth every penny.

    The durabead beads water off preventing it from drying on the car which results in the car staying cleaner. Also it looks like it has a fresh coat of wax after every wash.

    We had an 18 wheeler blow a tire on the highway in front of us resulting in a piece of tire flying over the car and scratching half of the trunk deck. I was pretty pissed, but the shop that did the coating stripped it down, did paint correction, and reapplied the coating. I only have two minor scratches that can barely be seen if you really look for them now. I believe without the coating I would have needed the trunk deck repainted. I attached a picture and posted a link to the shops FB pics of my car. I also have Suntek film on the full hood and front bumper.

    To me, Cquarts is a different but same product as most other quality waxes.
    I think if you apply a wax correctly it will last years, or at least look to last years.
    It is a top quality to answer your question, but if you have all the stuff needed to apply wax properly, the only difference will be in the way the water and dirt sheets from the surface.

    And I second Suntek. That is the only film I would use when I ran a window tinting business.

    I've been using Cquartz for a couple years and still do. I use the U.K. Version when it's cool/cold outside and the original when applying in the summer

    Cquartz or gyeon....can't go wrong. I have 22ple on my truck and it's a very good product, only thing is that you better apply it in a well ventilated area.lol

    I have liked the Gtechniq EXO on the 3 or 4 vehicles that I have applied it on.
