    I use autoglym wheel seal mate you just spray it on once you have cleaned your car it goes on like White and dries clear makes them dead shiny!! Lol it's great when you come to clean them again the dirt just wipes off dead easy no scrubbing HTH

    I use T-cut original metal polish. It's generally for the chrome stuff but protects alloys very well. You just need to clean it by water using Karcher or jetwash.
