Stock 20" wheel?

Does anyone know if the stock 20" aluminum wheels are clearcoated? I need to get some good wheel cleaner/polish but want to make sure I get the right stuff. Thanks for any help.

Okay, from what I have read on this site and others the wheels are clear coated. Therefore it seems that most aluminum polishes will strip away this coating. If the clear ends up gone the wheels will need a lot more attention or a regular basis. I have read that Mothers says to try there plastic polish on the wheels. I have meguiars version of plastic polish and tried a little last night and it seemed to work okay and take off a lot of the grime on the wheels. I'm going to try again later with a buffer and see what results I get. If anyone else has any info I would love to hear it. Thanks.

I tried some Meguiars Hot Wheels All Wheel Cleaner(in a pink bottle)and it really did a good job. I had to apply it a couple of times and use a microfiber towel to work some of it but it did a good job. I did have some hard stuff on the rear wheels from putting my boat in and out of the salt water for 2 weeks but this stuff seemed to clean them right up. I think using this stuff on a normal basis will work great.

Had a couple of stubborn stains so I got a Mothers Power Ball Mini and some Mequiars Plastx and those stains are now gone. Wheels look good. Just info for anyone else trying to clean their wheels.
