Welcome to the RAMz. I can only tell you what I do so take it for what it is. I only wash when its cooler and shaded (never in the Sun). First I rinse throughly and then I use simonize car wash with a mit. After that I shamie off completely. When I use wax (not every wash) I use the mequires quick spray. As for my rims I use a product called Wheel Wax, it is fantastic and helps with brake dust buildup and salt in the winter. I have attached a link for reference (http://www.wheelwax.com/). Good luck and post some pics when your done !!

I like Fukken Wax. Works great after the cleaning is done to show a hell of a shine!

I have the 20" chrome clads on mine and use the Wheel Wax (as mentioned in my earlier post). I have some pics of the results at this link http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=50654.

Just to clarify...You don't use the Wheel Wax until *after* you've cleaned it thoroughly. To do that, I'd look into Meguiars' All Wheel Cleaner. I believe that one is safe on mags.
