Default Cleaning these 22's...try Nevr Dull?

I've had the truck since late April and with it being my first black auto I knew keeping it clean would be a full time effort but these nice rims are starting to get a hazy appearance in sections.

I have all the cleaners and wheel polish which work great on the Challenger Alcoa forged 20"s but don't seem to do anything on these forged and polished aluminum rims.

Bought some NevDull but wondered if anyone has used it on these rims yet?

Yes new standard for 2011 R/T.....at a recent show a Black Viper Ram pulled up beside me and even with those an inch wider at 22x10 these 22x9's just seemed bigger and badder somehow.

OK...I'm not up on these wheels (clearcoat, bare polished, etc...) so once you determine the finish on these then you can pick the right stuff. If they are bare polished, NevRDull works great.

Yeahs that's my concern here.

The local dealer here was clueless as there hasn't been a R/T within a 100 miles of them so they had never seen this model and rim setup.

I'm thinking they're clearcoated and that's whats going hazy but wanted to make sure the right abrasive/cleaner/polish is used on them now and long term.

Obviously, if they are clear coated, you'd want to buff them out using an autobody rubout compound vs. NevRDull.

Thanks for the tip will give it a try.

It looks old school and definitely never seen that product in retail store but Amazon/Ebay carry it.

Not cheap either at $16 for a small tube which is getting into lady's cosmetic prices!

Were these wheels ever coated with any of the "5" year wax?????? Cilajet like products? I ask because it stated in some information I read on this stuff that anything applied over this product, like spray wax or auto detail spray will cause it to haze over. Now, I applied Cilajet to mine, wheels only, thinking it would help protect against road grime and at the time I was polishing I thought the clear coat looked a little hazed anyway.
