Armor All voted Best Wheel Wax

Armor All, the USA’s number one car care brand, has polished off ‘Best Wheel Wax’ in the Auto Express 2014 Product Awards, after its Shield for Wheels alloy wheelcare product outperformed all-comers.

This makes it two in a row for Armor All, having outshone all other entrants with its Shield paintcare product, to win ‘Best Wax & Polish’ in the 2013 Awards.

Auto Express, well-known for the rigorous test regimes it applies to its annual Product Awards, pitched ten competitive products back to back in this year’s ‘Best Wheel Wax’ category, focusing on the finding most proficient performer that cared best for expensive alloys.

After exhaustive testing, Armor All Shield for Wheels emerged the clear winner, the citation from Auto Express reading: “It sets a new standard for wheel sealants and waxes. You just spray on and let it dry for an hour, and it was particularly easy to clean.  It resisted grime build-up well and was still working even after a wash. Keen price makes this an easy winner.” 

Commenting on Armor All’s consecutive Product Award victories, they added: “Car care specialist Armor All has a stand-out product in Shield. The paint version won last year’s wax and polish test, and now this variation for wheels takes victory in its field.”

Spraying Shield for Wheels onto clean, dry wheels leaves an immensely resilient coating that locks in the wheel’s condition at the time of application, for up to four weeks, requiring only a light wash to restore the wheel to its original condition between applications.

Equally effective on new and old wheel finishes alike, Shield for Wheels is brimful of the latest polymer technologies and is priced at £9.99 for a 300ml aerosol, with a money-back guarantee in the event of less than 100% product satisfaction.

Shield for Wheels and the extensive range of Armor All car care products – including cleaners and protectants for all exterior and interior surfaces – are widely available throughout the UK, including major stores, all good accessory outlets, and forecourt shops.  For full information, see
