I would use the old wheels and tires if you have them and reserve the new wheels for the dryer months. Sonax rim and wheel shield.

If you're looking for a ceramic coating, these two are some of the best, but you'd have to get them done by an authorized installer/detailer.

Opti-Coat Pro+ - The Ultimate? Ceramic Paint Protection Coating | Opti-Coat LLC

CQuartz Finest Ceramic Coating for Automotive Paint Protection

These are top notch coatings but you'll pay through the nose for them.

I've never run really nice wheels in the winter. I use Bouncer's Looking Sweet wheel wax on my car and I love it. But, those wheels don't see winter.

Recent quote for ceramic coating for my whole truck was 750-1150 depending on which one I chose.

I used Poorboys Wheel Sealant on my Forces last year and it seemed to last for quite a while and perform decently. However if you really want a product to stand up a ceramic coating is the way to go for sure. Adam's Polishes recently came out with a new ceramic wheel coating that would definitely work good. I plan to try it out after I polish my Forces and put them back on in the spring.

one of my old car buddys is a adams polish detailer. actually told me he would get them done for me at no charge. also said my whole truck would be around 250-300.
