Matte black wheel cleaner

I have matte black wheels and I've noticed other vehicles with matte black wheels and they turn grey, ashy, and fade. Does anyone have a product they use to clean, condition and protect the finish?

I use chemical guys matte sealer from Amazon since it's priced right. There's also dr beasley's matte sealant...a little pricey though. Just don't wax/polish matte wheels.
I just wash it with soap/water, clean excess dirt, wipe dry, then chemical guys.

Anyone used Simple Green on them? I don't have matte wheels but simple green is a great product that works well and isn't made of harsh chemicals. Worth a try maybe?

I also use their Jet Seal Matte on my wheels too, but only after using the Diablo Gel first to remove the road grime and brake dust. Both do a great job.

I second Chemical Brothers Matte Sealant. I wash with soap and water and apply sealant. The wheels look deep black. They seem to resist water stains since using this product as well.

I'm new to the Jeep community with my 15 Willy's JKU. I am interested in some 33's on matte black wheels but I hate the faded look I see on most of them. If there is a way to keep them "black", they'll be on my radar for the next set.

Most faded wheels you see are probably plasti dipped

Are these products safe on powder coating? I'm trying to find something that will clean my matte wheels as I've heard some products can ruin the powder coating. Also, what do you use on the tires that's also safe for matte/powder coated wheels? Thanks.

I install vinyl all day, and 90% of it seems to be matte black. From my experience ammonia free glass cleaners and degreasers that don't contain petroleum distillates work pretty well.

The glass cleaner we use is ''Sprayway'' its the foaming kind so it helps lift stuff of the surface.
