Wondering what some of your favorite products are for cleaning and polishing your forgeline wheels? i have a satin gunmetal spoke and polished hoops, want to make sure I don't scratch the polished portion.
thanks

I use Wizard's metal polish for scratches and water spots (it's our go-to for all aluminum)

Their mist & shine (or any quick detailer) is good for an overall cleaner.

If you've got a lot of brake dust then the Wizards all wheel/tire cleaner works great.

Mothers billet polish... not to be confused with their "regular" aluminum polish they sell in the stores. The billet polish is available mostly online (at least I have never found it locally). Amazon is where I buy it.
I tried many other aluminum & metal polishes, and they all left fine scratches.... they actually made my mirror polished rims worse than when I started.
I spoke with the Mothers guys at SEMA a few years ago & they showed me their billet polish. It is the bomb.
