Finally got a set of my favorite 5-spoke wheels (used). How do you clean and maintain these?

Nice wheels! Are they clear coated? A good polish should brighten them up.

EMR068 wheel. I'm going to strip them, polish them, then clear coat them. Post what you do to your wheels.

Not sure what to do with them just yet, don't want to screw them up.

might try going to your local auto parts store and look at Eagle 1 products , they used to sell various wheel sprayables. mag, aluminum, etc.

if they are not clear coated. warm soapy water for the painted centers. then polish for the shiny part. the header wrap may destroy your headers if they get too hot.

70 L camino, grampa engine, g-force 5 spd, road rage suspension. Pray first before all else fails.
