Default Polishing Clear Coat Wheels

I have a 2006 Impala SS and I was told the wheels are clear coated. What can I use to polish them? Thanks.

If the rims are factory OE, yes they are clear coated.

I'd suggest Plastic Polish.

What about regular wax on the wheels?

Can you explain why you'd recommend the plastic polish?

Thanks

We like to recommend the Plastic Polish to address the plasticized finishes on today's modern wheels, as well as to handle the abuse that wheels endure.

You should have satisfactory results with a regular wax.
