Wax is good. Avoid polishes designed for mag wheels because they can take the clear coat off cast aluminum rims.

I like to use eagle one a-z wheel cleaner. I think it works very well. And for those hard to get off spots I like to use Eagle One Never Dull wadding polish.

I used the Zaino on all the rims when I was detailing my truck...they still bead up every time I wash the truck... even after wiping them down...and plenty of applications of tire dressing.

I saw a product on TRUCK TV called zoop seal. It apparently seals the aluminum and doesn't allow anything to stick to it/corrode it. I think there is a link on the TRUCK TV website.

While we are talking about taking care of the aluminum wheels,
did anyone ever have to touch-up the paint on the silver-painted aluminum wheels on a '03 Dak Sport Plus?? If so, anyone have the paint code of a suitable, close match touch-up?? Thanks!
