Default Back-to-black tire renew

I was curious if the drippings from the sidewall onto the rim or any over spray of this product could/will strip the layer of wax I put on my rims?

The effect would likely be negligible if you clean the tire and wipe off any overspray while you're waiting 30 seconds before wiping the tire.

If you use Spray Wax as you dry after a wash, you can boost your wax protection on the wheels.

Thanks for the assurance.

Given the low amount of miles driven per year and the fact the car doesn't see poor weather, I typically only fully wax the rims once per year. I'll definitely be sure to hit the faces of them along with the rest of the car with spray wax after washing to help maintain them.

If it will dry up well, you should have no problems. Especially if you are not driving in a lot of rain. Besides weather, another thing that you should take into account when washing the rims is how much break dust will be there
