How to properly maintain wheels?

We all love our wheels. It's part of having a Jeep. How do you maintain it to keep it in best condition and avoid scratches? Should I spray it with anything? Matte black on mine.

don't go offroad. lol. on a side note, i do wheel my jeep and i have yet to scratch my lovely fuel offroad wheels.

keep them clean as much as possible and avoid water to dry. i have a buddy whose 4k wheels have water spots after several years.

If your looking for something good over the counter to clean with use Eagle 1 A to Z cleaner. Best product you can pick up locally. All my wheel cleaners are online only though so I have plenty of recommendations there.

Wash em. I have cragar soft 8 steelies and have buried them in sand and all but theyre not scratched. I almost guarantee factory wheels are more durable.

I have black MB TKOs. I was struggling with them being hazy and a bit washed out instead of deep black. Last weekend I waxed my JKU with turtle wax Ice liquid and decided to do the wheels at the same time with the same stuff and they came out brilliantly. Not sure how it will do over time, but right now I'm really happy with it.
