Cleaning 2015 Willys Grille & Wheels

Hi guys!

Pardon my newbieness, I finally realized my lifelong dream of owning a Wrangler and I'm just wondering if anyone can give me some pointers. I did try to search so I'm not cluttering the forum, but couldn't find anything specifically on this topic. Just as a disclaimer, I'm pretty much an all-around car newbie so there's a lot I'm learning (please excuse me if I get some terminology wrong!!!).

My Willys has, like all the standard ones, the black grille and wheels. Is there a special product I should be using to keep that nice and shiny (minus when it's mud splattered, etc)? Or will the usual car washing detergent be sufficient?

Any other general maintenance & care pointers are very much appreciated!

Thanks!!!

The grille and bumper inserts are standard black PX8 paint and should be washed using regular car wash soap. They also should be waxed just like the rest of the vehicle. I find black to be difficult to care for so I had all of the gloss black accents on my Altitude edition wrapped in Xpel Ultimate clear bra to prevent swirls marks and chips. As for the wheels, they also should be washed just like the rest of the vehicle. If they are extra dirty you can purchase a wheel cleaner like Chemical Guys diablo gel to help get the job done. There are wheel waxes and sealants on the market that can be applied to protect wheels as well.

If you want to make life easier, get yourself some Optimum No Rinse, a spray bottle, and some quality microfiber towels.

Like mentioned above, those parts are just painted black. Nothing special as far as finish goes.
