    i think multispoke looks good on a mera but take a lot of cleaning, hence my rim change. can i ask tho, you said just had them fitted, you didnt pay someone to fit your wheels for you did you?

    Yeah but if you have just spent a couple hundred of your hard earned dollars on a nice set of wheels you don't want to clean them with something that will tarnish or damage them over time!

    just use whatever you normally wash your car with on them and remember to give them a coat of wax every few weeks and cleaning them shouldnt be too bad. i find a coat of wax stops the baked on stuff getting as bad and it makes them easier to clean aswell.

    like the look of the car, set of clear indicators and it will look even better

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    *apologises to neighbours for blood curdling scream*

    Please dont use a de-greaseing acid to clean your wheels! That stuff is desighned to cut through thick burnt on stuff, not a thin layer of dried on dust. It will also remove all the lacquer from your wheels over time, wheel cleaners are lacquer safe.
