i would just wash them with regular car soap, and then way them.

Ordinary car wash soap. Nothing special, and I wouldn't take any polish or cleaner wax to them. It might wear the thin layer of chrome off the plastic. ;)

i was reading something about waxing the wheels to prevent brake dust
from sticking to them, and other junk.
i just hope they stay bright in the coming years. :worry:

use a protectant rather than a wax (wax melts from the heat from braking).

If you need to clean them (like removing brake dust) clay works best without the chance of damaging the thin chrome.

Interesting, I just use Meguiars Detailing spray, now that I have thought about it. I have never used the clay...too lazy I suppose. :doh:

I go to the car detailers, and have them do it for me. :) I like your avatar GenX. A pussy cat grooving to the beat. :lol:

clay IS lazy - keep using the detailing spray, just use the clay to remove it rather than a microfiber towel.
