    I need some help guys..

    I just got some I-forged wheels for my M3, and they have a big 4" lip on them. Now everytime I drive my car they get dirty/tarnished/oxidized. I can honestly allready see what looks like clearcoat wearing off of them. I have been washing/polishing my wheels after EVERY small drive. Its insane!

    My question is. Is there an easy to use polish that works extremely well? Is there a way to seal in the polish, so I dont have to bust my ass every single time I drive my car?

    Is there a way I can clean/polish my wheels.. Tape off the centers, and spray a clear over them??

    Any help would be great! I know other people have similiar issues with nice wheels. I asked Scottwax, and he told me to post it here so he can help with everyone.

    I've used it. Works well, unfortunately I left it under one of my customer's lifts and it got crushed :( It is kind of a pain to work in by hand though, just a slight warning. Much easier with something like the powerball.
