Wax to protect paint?

Okay, I know this may sound like a dumb question but here goes. Does hand waxing my SUV protect the paint from road grime? I've never seen so much black yuck on my vehicle before. I don't know if it's road grime or pollutants. What is the best wax to use? Thanks! )

There is no such thing as a dumb question!

Actually it is my experience that those who ask questions are smarter! This is because they are always asking questions and therefore know the answers to these things!

Anyway that is a good question!

I searched google.com for the words...
wax protect paint

And found this web page which says yes it does protect the paint. And goes on to talk all about different wax, etc...
Car Wax FAQ. How to protect your paint with a good coat of car wax.

More from google.com...

Thanks for the pep talk Bill190, I'm use to getting a hard time when I ask questions that I guess they (guys) thinks we should know. Thanks for the info, I guess me and my car will be spending a Saturday together!

Best wax to use for protection is one that's easy to use and will last awhile.
And the polymer waxes (spray wax) fit that description.
Plus it doesn't hurt if you get it on the those black plastic textured body pieces. unlike with paste wax. So you can be thorough and be sure that your not gonna cause a big white powdery mess.

I read the artical Bill190 posted. I liked the part about the paint will only take so much wax. I gotta remember that next time!

I'm still talking about wax. But it's in a spray bottle and it's wiped on and then wiped off. Got it Daniel-san?
I recommended it to you because it does last longer and is easy to apply since it's like putting on furniture polish.
And you asked for easy and strait forward protection.
