    Hi all, I have just bought a 325 ci at the weekend, and im chuffed that it has come with a set of 19" M3 alloys. They are highly polished but i dont know what is best for cleaning them, i.e. do i use alloy wheel cleaner or do i need the kind that is used for chrome and steel wheels. Thanks

    Avoid any acid based cleaners for starters i would have said (Maguires wheel brightener for instance).
    Menzerna wheels cleaner, P21S wheel cleaner gel are good ones i'm told.
    Or you should be OK with your standard car wash used on the rest of the car?
    And finish off with poor boys wheel sealant or something similar.
    And an endurance gel on the tyres.............

    I'd recommend using Bilberry Wheel Cleaner - it's acid free and completely safe on painted and polished rims, and it won't strip any product you've already applied.

    To get some protection on them, Rimwax is a great product that will keep them looking tip-top, or as mentioned, the Poor Boys Sealant

    I agree with the posts above Never put the acid shit near your wheels all it needs is to find a small paint flake and its in the back eating away at the coating
