    I didn't know that. Thanks for the info! I will stick to using car soap and I might give some wax a try and see if that helps. I was just worried that the heat coming off the brakes might bake the wax onto the wheels and ruin them.
    Yikes... make sure to HEAVILY coat them with wax and you will need to do this each time you wash now. No wheels are made today that you need to use aluminum polish, or any other polish on. This is for those that *strip" their factory wheels and just polish them to get rid of the corrosion.
    Please keep an eye on your wheels now and make sure that you look for the white spider webbing effect that corrosion does. This will typically work from the inside (back of wheel) to the front (side you always see).

    If you guys ever get your wheels coated any other colors use 'PVD' coating. The stuff is so d@mn durable. I clean my wheels with simple green and paper towel not even a scratch. Now try that with clearcoated wheels

    I bought some stuff from Discount Tire called wheel wax and it works Great!

    If you clean the wheels with soap, water and dry them with a leaf blower/microfiber towel combo, then put the wheel wax on, they'll be easier to clean up for the next couple of months.
