Are they painted alloy's? Bare alloy's? Do they have a clear coat on them? It's gonna make a difference on how you take care of them.

If they are painted or have a clear coat on them, wash them with soap and water, then use a good cleaner wax on them.
If they are bare metal, wash with soap and water and use a good metal polish that is safe for alloy wheels.

if you think doing drag lights is bad come do my boyd wheels. It takes about an hour per wheel and that is half assing it. I could do a hole set of drag lights inside and out in an hour.

It will leave very small scratches all over your wheels. It will definitely get out all stains and markings but your will be left with the scratches.

it didn't work to well on my wheels.

it depends on the type of wheel i guess?
