    I don't use anything on my wheels. Just keep them clean and don't curb 'em

    all in the prep then matey...

    If you spend time putting a couple of layers of wax then a couple layers of sealant on the wheels (whilst there off the car - dont forget the back of the wheels too ), when you need to clean them it will be sooo much easier...

    Everyone has their own regime Bhav, I use colonite on the insides & rimwax on the front face of the alloy.
    A bit of time spent now waxing them makes future cleaning so much easier
