Trail Team black wheel maintenance

Does anyone have suggestions for a maintenance dressing for the TT black wheels. After washing, my wheels look drab with water spots and a whitish colored film. I've tried tire dressing, but am asking if anyone has a better idea.

I've seen wheel-specific dressing at autozone developed for black wheels, matte and gloss

Re: Trail Team black wheel maintenance

probably not the best idea, but i'm lazy and just spray them down with tire foam as i'm doing my tires, and then give 'em a wipe afterwards to get rid of the excess...

Re: Trail Team black wheel maintenance

I'm trying to decide what black paint for touch ups where the service monkeys scratched during rotation. Satin black, matte black, flat black, semi gloss, etc.

'73 FJ40: Chevy sb 350 TBI
'84 FJ60: Vortec 4.3 TBI & 700R4
'12 FJC TTSE: ARB front bumper, Warn Zeon 10k winch, Icon Stage 2, RCI'S, 285/17 Duratracs, Prinsu rack, Springtail everything

Re: Trail Team black wheel maintenance

Use a rag and wipe each down ... No easy spray on method better then a good wipe down!
