As with any coating, you'll get pits in the coating. Then, salt/moisture will get into the pit, and work it's way under the coating. Soon, the coating will fail to adhere, and lift. Then rust will form and you'll never see it.
Teflon's promise on a wheel is a lot like powder coating, but I fear the results will be the same.
IMHO... don't waste your money. If you wash the Jeep as much as possible you'll help reduce corrosion on the wheels and the body.
