    working on it...
    Anyone know what they use at the dealership for the rims? My brother and I each bought 2012s and noticed that the rims are coated with something that makes them real easy to clean, almost like they've been waxed with something.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Your rims come painted, and cleared just like the body on your car is. So, being brand new, the dirt just comes right off. Give it a year or two, and it'll be a different story all together. Keep them waxed, and polished, and you'll be good to go.

    ^Wax really helps. My wheels clean up easily with soap and water. I actually use baby shampoo, which is what I wash my whole truck with.

    Plasti coated grill and rear bumper along with all badges. Rigid Industrys D2 Driving lights. Money is tight so more to come soon hopefully.
    look into auto magic products. they have a cleaner that will remove the dust off wheels and tires with little or no scrubbing. I love the stuff.
