Default Black painted rims

What's best for cleaning black gloss painted rims? I was gonna try that black magic titanium stuff since it's the only neutral rim cleaner out there but idk, any help would be greatly appreciated

Well if it's paint, just use the same stuff you would on your truck.

They are glossy paint, not powdercoat and I've heard stories about rims getting gazed from certain soaps

It's paint. Just use the same soap as you do on your truck's paint and it will be fine.

Now when it comes to waxing, if there's no clear coat on the rims then you won't want to wax them.

The paint will be fine if you use automotive wash soap.

why would it be wrong to wax your painted wheels? It would essentially be like waxing a single stage paint job on the body....
