Over the counter wise, Meguiar's Gold Class. If it was my choice and money was no object, Pinnacle Souveran Paste.

Wheel wise, you can go to a store and get the Meguiar's Chrome Wheel cleaner. I've used the Aluminum one and besides the smell it worked pretty good on my dad's car.

I have tried gold class before...it didnt give me quite what I was looking for..it seemed dull and shallow...Megs NXT really made it look deep and bright, I just thought maybe there was something dark color specific? what did you use for a rag on the wheels?

You can also go to a store and get a wheel cone. It's a microfiber cone shaped brush that works really well.

I have had great success with Meguiar's Gold Class in the past even on black cars.

If you want a dark color and overall great product, try this. BLACKFIRE Wet Diamond, All Finish Paint Protection
I've never been able to find it anywhere else. I'm thinking about picking some up myself.


Also, you're not going to get that rich, deep luster out of your car without proper polishing and paint correction. A wax will only protect it and add minor 'pop' to the paint.

That Wet Diamond does look nice... intresting how it says it has a polymer in it that reflects light. Would really compliment the Clear coat. If you get and try it let me know.
