    can anyone give me some info on what they use to clean black rims. I currently have moto metal 951 black rims and want to know how to maintain them everyday and what you use to care for them. Thanks!

    Soap and water man. That's the great thing about black rims, no polishing required! I've got the XD Revolvers in matte black and I just use soap and water.

    I though the 'great' thing about black rims was that it didn't matter if they were dirty...

    Anyway, to answer the question, i always clean my alloy rims with the same stuff i clean the truck with, only at the end after painted parts. Usually a 'Mequires' of other decent car wash liquid soap.
