It depends on the wheel finish -- and is it OEM or aftermarket?

Glossy OEM wheel finishes are clearcoated and can handle a strong cleaner like the Mothers Foaming Wheel & Tire Cleaner, or the Mothers Polished Aluminum Wheel Cleaner.

If it's a matte or flat finish, these tend to be more susceptible to stronger cleaners so our Polished Aluminum Wheel Cleaner would be recommended.

Be sure to use a spray wax after each wash to add some protection to the finish, as the finish should be treated like paint. Periodically wax them with a heat-resistant synthetic wax like our California Gold Synthetic Wax.

Pep Boys and Advance Auto and online resources stock both cleaners, and you can find the California gold Spray Wax or Synthetic Wax most everywhere.
