    So I noticed my rims are looking really bad lately. The lettering is starting fade which is surprising since my truck is garage kept. Any ideas how to get my rims looking new again?

    Yikes, that red TRD logo looks quite faded. Judging from the brown tire (unless it's a reflection) it looks like you use tire shine quite liberally...or you just get your tires dirty. A regular microfiber rag with car wash, or microfiber mitt, should clean those up with no issue. If you'd rather, you can get any number of "wheel cleaner" products from Meguiars, Mothers, etc.

    I will try to wash it this week, being in the monsoon season makes it hard when everyday from 2-5 we get mini severe monsoons.

    It is just dirty, I haven't used a tire shine in a while. However, I'm wondering what product to apply to keep them from fading like that.

    Keep in mind, the wheels are matte black, not gloss. Even crispy clean looks dull. Just the price we pay for nice wheels.
    Ps, cleaning inside all the little links s#cks.

    I love my Pro, Just don’t care for the finish on the matte black wheels. Much harder to keep clean because of the finish.

    I always pull them and give a good coat of wax inside and out about once a year. Makes regular cleaning a breeze and they aways look new unless they get rashed
