I always seal my alloys with spray wax after cleaning. Or if I 3 stage (paint cleaner, Polish, wax) the car, I do the same with the wheels. :)

Have something to contribute?

Nice one! I have now started polishing and waxing them. Hopefully the dirt will not stick to them as much, they also look good afterwards!

A guy I know bought a BMW and the allows looked like they had been driven through a tar pit so he got cement acid and washed them with that worked like a charm mind you don't get it on your hands

wheels are looking good bud. after giving my wheels a good cleaning I then seal them with poor boys wheel sealant and it lasts a long time .

you don't need to use much, they recommend two light coats but if you don't have the time then one coat works just as well and once applied I find I don't need any cleaners just soap and hot water . happy days .

Chemical Guy's Diablo Wheel Gel will see them like new. Great stuff and can be used on any wheel surface. Totally safe on break parts too.
