How to protect satin black finish?

Hey guys I am running a set of satin black reps with snow tires for my winter setup. I dont think these have any type of clearcoat since they are a satin finish. What would you suggest to do in order to protect the finish from damage from salt on the roads etc... Aside from just trying to rinse them whenever they come in contact with those types of conditions.

I just wax my reps. I have used poorboys wheel sealant on some of my other wheels and that seemed to do a nice job.

do you have a gloss or satin finish on your reps? I use Adam's products and was thinking of hitting it with their Quick Sealant spray, but then it will basically turn the satin finish into a gloss finish lol.

Mine are satin. Didn't turn them into gloss but they did shine a little more.
