    This is what I go for...

    Clean using Meguars Gold Class Shampoo
    Wash off using water
    Wonder wheels (if you have a container I can spare some ).
    Wash off using water.
    Followed by Meguars Quick Clay
    Microfibre off the spray and they should be good.
    Then just wax them to protect them.

    jam
    Its a jam thing

    get some meguairs Wheel Brightener. Unfortunately it comes in trade tubs but it is really good stuff!

    If you get wonder wheels this stuff is also good but really really harsh! Go easy and take car, if you get either product in your eyes your in trouble!

    Take care with both as they are both very harsh products!
