    How does it hold up to extreme heat from the brakes?

    I'm assuming that you mean painted wheels. It wouldn't matter because your brakes get hot, not the wheels.

    I am wondering if the heat from the would make doing this task pointless. From what I see the heat radiating from the brakes can get much hotter than the sun shining on the hood and other parts of the car. I think I am gonna give it a shot since I dont think it will hurt anything.

    Right, but the heat comes from the brakes, not the wheels. The wheels themselves don't get very hot, especially the outside painted surfaces.

    You can use wax to help make the wheels easier to clean. I like using the regular Moose Wax, but any decent wax will work fine.

    I've been using Zaino on mine for a few years now. Holds up just fine and is unaffected by the heat of brake dust.
