    Hey guys I just got some gloss black fuel assaults and was wanting to know what to clean them with. Is there something I can buy at the local store? I just want to clean them without damaging them. Thanks

    T-Rex is on point. Only thing I would be looking at is a ceramic aftermarket spending that dough....after getting them cleaned up. And with that black truck, I would be doin the whole thing.

    Not sure I understand this ceramic stuff. My wheels haven’t been touched yet, they haven’t even been taken out of the box. So anything I need to do before having them mounted and balanced?

    I’m paranoid about wheels too, I just use the normal turtle wax car wash, I get the hand mit and go to town on each rim.

    I’m digging those wheels btw

    Nice wheels!. Here's what's on the Fuel website:

    How do I clean my FUEL wheels?
    Keeping your Fuel wheels clean will extend the life of your finish. Never clean the wheels when they are hot, and only use mild automotive soap and clean water.

    Ceramic is stuff that lasts years and will make it a shit ton easier to clean down the road. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVHcemzqgpc

    McKees Wheel coating once you get them clean. After that, you'll never need more than soap and water.
