I personally don't like the chemical wheel cleaners on painted wheels. Seen too many cases where the clear coat or paint gets screwed up.

U wash the car and rims with soap... Then once dry, go back with car detailer spray on the wheels... Then finish with a tire treatment.

I use a lot of Meguiar's stuff.

The detailer I like (especially for dark cars) is their ultimate quick detailer.

Most detailer sprays are about the same.

They work great between washes to keep the car looking slick and clean.

Just to be clear, these are in no way the same as a quick spray wax..

No, but some others who have been reading some threads assume the detailer IS a spray wax.

I wouldn't spray wax the car/wheels weekly... I wax the car and wheels every 2-3 months ( there are many, many threads about all the recommended steps).

But I love their detailer, I use that stuff almost daily...
