ok to use wax on wheels?

is it okay to use wax on black wheels? ive heard some people say they do it. i always figured soap and water during a wash would work but does wax give a much better look and is it safe? also if so which would be the best to use (paste, liquid, etc...)

You can wax your wheels. Just use car soap and water and clean the wheels and then once you dry them put a coat of wax on and then wipe off to protect them.
