Polished wheels...how/what to do to keep them shining?

Anyone running polished wheels? I'm thinking about going with polished wheels since they are cheaper, just wondering if anyone has them and what they do to keep them clean and shiny? I was thinking the Mother's Powerball and some polish would work, just wondering how often you polish them(weekly, monthly, etc).
Thanks,
Brad

I had polished Weld Cheyenne 8 spoke rims on my 05, 17". Will never buy polished again. I would spend a Sunday polishing all 4 and after 1 days commute on Monday to work, about 70 miles, they looked dull and dirty again. I used the Mothers ball with mothers polish. They were good wheels but high maintenance to keep looking nice.

If you get polished wheels make sure they are clear coated

I think I'm gonna go with the ZoopSeal, sounds like good stuff. I might score a set of rims for cheap so I almost have to try it.

I use Adams polish cleaner, that the best product i`ve found!! I`ve only owned polished wheels also. Chrome and Indiana weather just doesn`t mix!!!! Spent about 30 minutes or less to shine this wheel up.
