Not sure the exact specs of the SS wheels. But on mine i always use Mother's mag and aluminum metal polish, seems to work great, esp with a Powerball and a drill.

Yep, clear coat (and not a quality one either).

Treat them as you would any painted surface cuz that whats on them; paint.

Stay away from all these miracle acidic wheel cleaners.

I would not use Mothers mag polish on em unleSS you stripped em and polished them, that stuff is tough on paint as its made for metal surfaces.

You would not use Mothers mag polish on the car right? So be careful with that stuff as it cuts.

I always just use soap and water, then coat em with a quality wax or sealant (like Poorboys wheel sealant).
