Smile Foose Wheels

Okay I have just purchased "in my opinion" the best wheels you can buy! They are foose wheels DF-6 Black. I am woundering what should I use on these.
Here is a photo.

Sharp wheels. I like to use FX Spray Wax to protect and maintain. Seems to work well when regularly applied.

Are they chrome or just a polished lip?

There's several ways to approach these... and multi-finish wheels can be challenging...

Evidently it's a stainless steel rim that is chromed, and it has chromed inserts on the black spokes.

You can use Spray Wax on the chrome with no problem -- so use Spray Wax on the entire wheel.

Keep them clean and maintained and you should be fine with Spray Wax. Use FX SynWax if you need a little more "polishing" as it would be safe for all the surfaces.

You could use Mothers Chrome Polish once in a while on the chrome, but avoid the black surfaces and then go over the whole thing with FX SynWax, then maintain with Spray Wax.

Hopefully I covered all the bases.

I would still go with the FX Spraywax, as Admin. pointed out. You shouldn't have any finish problems with proper washing and diligent applications of the spraywax. The key to rim maintenance is keeping them clean and not letting brake dust, road tar, etc. from building up. Also, watch the curbs...

Good luck! Those are show rims. To me, those are "garage queen" wheels.

Matt.
Off topic a little I suppose.
Are those wheels going on the Honda Fit?
I just noticed that they are the wheels with six wheel nuts, lugs I think you guys call them in the US.

Also, that row of tiny bolts around the edge of the multi finish spoked central section, do they just secure that to the rim. I can see that making the cleaning a little more problematic.

Great looking wheels though.

Why I ask is that we have conventions here in Australia that I suppose are law. Four lugs for smaller cars, 5 for medium and large cars, and six for the SUV 4WD class of vehicle.

Tony.

Well the company could not give me a good answer about getting them in a 4 lug. So I wanted them so bad that I did a 4-5 lug conversion for my Honda civic 03
