    Just use any car polish because the polished lips will be laquered.. If its little black dots you can pick of then get some tar remover or a clay bar..

    a treatment of collinite 476 marine wax..

    as good as anthying ive used on raw and polished alloy wheels and paint finishes..stops them (raw alloy) pitting and blooming with a regular treatment and its detergent proof and will not wash off..

    i would wash them with billberry wheel cleaner, its very good and dosent contain any acids

    to remove the black spots, a clay bar will pull them off

    and finish them with, as others have said two coats of collinite

    Hi guys back again, an have a slight issue, around the chrome rim on my bbs rims, their seams to be blotches which look like bird poop, an isnt coming off, when im washing the car.

    An so far iv been washing the wheels with my hands an a microfibre cloth, to avoid scratching the wheels, but it takes me a long time, so does anyone know of a good brush for me to get which will NOT scratch the wheel at all?
