Are you referring to the polished aluminum and painted wheels?

If so then the black is paint so you really cannot do much except to wash and wax, at least that is what I have been told my numerous sources.

BTW - these wheels were first on the 2010 SRT8 Furious Fuchsia...........go ahead and ask me how I know............:laugh:

Yes the ff wheels. Just seems like I'm seeing pics of them shining/popping and I'm having trouble getting mine to.

If I am "dressing" mine up I have used a Quick Detailer after having them completely dry. I am thinking about buying and testing one of the Adam's Polishes wax products but not sure yet.

BTW - I tried for quite a while to get detailed care instructions on these wheels but no one was really able to tell me much. They are a bit different because of the polished alum and painted pockets. From what I can understand there is no real "one" product that will work for them

It's like a matte black with clear coat on them.
