Washing painted wheels?

Assuming I do a proper job with wheel specific paint.

Do I just wash them as normal?

Is it possible to use wheel cleaners or would they be too harsh on the paint?

I just wash mine as normal, and they just started to chip now after 5 years, gotta repaint them soon.

5 years is impressive.

Not bad at all.

Do you mind if I ask what color? And were you satisfied with the looks?

It is black but it had a sheen/sparkle look when new, i bought some chrome caps from toyota for about 200 bucks too. I originally painted them because a dumb ass scratched the originals while putting new tires on a couple years back, i think it looks better now, almost like cops wheels.

Rust-O-Leum (or however you spell that spray paint).

I would use a neutral cleaner with a brush and follow with a wax (glaze) to protect them and keep them cleaner longer.

I just go this kit and really like it
