Is this the best kit to use to take care of my wheels?

    I finally got my brand new wheels on my car and I want to make sure they still look good 10 years from now. I was looking at the DP Wheel Special on Autogeek (http://www.autogeek.net/dpspwhkit.html). Is this going to be the best for me? My wheels have a painted center and a machined lip and I think the entire wheel is clear coated.

    You really do not need a kit to keep wheels clean. All you need is car wash soap, a soft brush, clay and a sealant.

    If you keep up with cleaning the brake dust you should never need more than car wash soap like Megs Gold Class. If you do, get a non-acid cleaner wet the wheels spray it on, let set a few mins and agitate. When done clay the rims like you would your paint, then apply a sealant to protect.

    I know I don't need a "kit" but Autogeek put DP's cleaner and glaze together and called it a kit.

    If you have a Discount Tire in your area, they sell Wheel Wax. Does a pretty good job cleaning and adding gloss to the wheels, plus it keeps them slick for 4-6 weeks, making cleaning easier. The DT by me is selling it for $12.

    That's actually where I bought my tires from. If it's as good as the DP stuff I'll go ahead and get that, I need to run back up there anyway.
