    Has anyone found any good rim cleaning products for these rims? The store has so many options it would take forever to try them all.

    I read somewhere that chemical guys worked best.

    @SlvrSlug Sonax is a good cleaner and recommendation. I have a new Chemical Guys wheel cleaner that I’ll be trying out in a few weeks.

    I've tried a bunch of them like Chemical Guys Matte Black Tire Cleaner - IMO I think they're all a waste of money - I just clean them with the microfiber mitt and soapy water I use on the rest of the car. I just make sure I get into all the corners (which sucks) - I really don't think they get any cleaner with these special tire cleaners and I wash mine frequently - I love a clean car

    After trying several products, what works for me is Brake Buster Cleaner and a brush attached to a drill.

    I use Meguire's car wash soap for the entire vehicle. No complaints.
