Last year when I got my new wheels I put Gtechniq C5 on them before putting them on the car. Wheels look great, coating holds up great.

I was considering putting it on my new brake calipers before installing them. Gtechniq says it's good for wheels, calipers, or exhaust tips.

Has anyone actually coated their brake calipers?

Well worth doing, and considerably easier if they are brand new and uncontaminated. You would otherwise need to thoroughly clean them before application.

If haven't bought the coating yet, I highly recommend looking at Armour Detail Supply High-Temp Wheel Coating.

Thanks @DFB5.0. Since they're new, I'll just hit them with a surface prep and coat away like I did my wheels. They'll have plenty of time to cure since they won't be going on until the weather is warmer.

Nothing against that product, already in on C5 though.

I used C5 on my summer wheels last year. Held up all season which is what I expected. The heat will start to break the coating down. I’d imagine you would need to coat the calipers annually but would say it’s totally worth doing.

I used Adams Advanced Graphene coating on my wheels and calipers. It's been about a year now and it is still beading and holding up great!

That’s good to know! I put a traditional 5-7 year coating on my summer set (Ethos Max), so I’ll be curious to how it holds up. The Adams coating is really good, my mom’s CT4-V and my dad’s Mustang are both coated with it. Both are holding up well against the salt and muck we get here in winter.

Well this was totally worth the bit of effort it required.

Went on a ceramic binger after diving into the SiO2 water bong...hit 3 sets of wheels in the barn and got two sets of big Reds taken care of. Jury is out on the durability once they see glow-rotor heat, but the CarPro DLUX is 'heat resistant'. We'll see but I'm sure they'll stay cleaner in the meanwhile. Don't delay; get 'er done today!

Note to self: Don't take another wheel picture at wide angle on the iP14...rotor looks like it just jumped in an ice bath if you know what I mean....

They never bothered me…until you mentioned it. Thanks…again…😁 It’ll keep me busy at the car show if I get bored although I am sure I will get the same looks my neighbors give me when I polish the exhaust tips with a Powerball…

Ha ha, I crossed that boarder with the neighbors a long time ago now, they know it's normal for me to be doing such odd things to cars.
