Split Rim Alloys - cleaning

I've had a set of split rims on my car for a few months now and the polished rim is looking worse for wear, really stained and dull. They were mint when fitted.

I'm surprised as a gave them a really good clean and sealed them recently.

The main body of the wheel is fine, just usual build up and muck, but the car is going in for a repaint next week and I dont want the wheels to let it down.

Any recomendations on what to clean the wheels with and bring the shine back the on polished rims.

Cheers
MC

The only wheel cleaner you'll ever need...

Auto-wheel | Water based Wheel Cleaner

Once you've cleaned them give them a once over with a clay bar and seal them with Poor Boys Wheel Sealant...

Apply 3-5 coats and reapply a year later!! It's that good
