    Wash, clay, wash, seal (e.g. Chemical Guys Wheel Sealant). You may also be OK with Bilberry Wheel cleaner but unsure on the polished wheels.

    Bilberry is perfectly safe on polished wheels as it's acid free. Clay will remove tar spots.

    Can buy clay kits from halfords mate. In fact, they're own one is a good kit for first timers.
