Just don't use aluminum polish.:no:
They are clear coated, so use whatever you'd use for the trucks paint if it needed 'conditioned'.
Search the posts, someone had a method that worked for them.





Edit - by the way, great price.

Had the same problem with my wheels and the clear coat. I ended up having my wheels powdercoated but the options are limited once the clear coat gets a bit chewed up. The options are A. have the wheels stripped buffed and re-clear coated, B. Paint the wheels, or C. powder coat the wheels. I went with option C. If you start go get white spidering under the clear coat you can try every product under the sun but it will still be there. If you like the polished look get the clear stripped off get a good aluminum polish, buff the crap out of them and get them clearcoated. I can't imagine having them sprayed clear will cost too much. You have already spent the money on the SS wheels, you might as well go for the gold and get them looking right.
