Default How Do I Keep Black Rims Glossy

I have black glossy rims and I have a hard time keeping them glossy at times because all the products I've tried dry up and leave those water marks or look pale black even though I dry them after I apply it still leaves marks what is the best way to clean these rims I know they're common what do you use? And what are your methods of keeping glossy black rims?

I'm interested too. I've used the metallic plasti dip, which looks really tight for a couple of days and then it gets dust covered and loses its shine. I bet any product out there would mess up the plasti dip though.

My stock wheels are plastidipped too for now. I have a wheel and tire spray that glosses up the flat black plastidip. I'll have to check out what it is. I bought it at Sears for like 10 bucks

I don't think they make anything i have seen. I wash an dry mine off an they shine... As stated above a clear coat would help. How long you had the wheels. had mine about a year an they still shine after a wash...

Mine have a real nice shine after wash. I used black plasti dip, metalizer, and a gloss coat over. The issue..after a couple days of driving they're back to dull gunmetal gray. Is keeping them shiny for longer just not possible?

Here is a pic, just washed my car today! That beautiful shine is what I want to have last longer!

Adding on to that- Is it okay to use tire shine on your tires? I have read plenty about not getting it on your wheels, but is it okay to simply shine your tires? Or will that leak and ruin the plasti dip if it rains??

Frequent cleaning and I tried waxing them. Doesn't work as well as on the paint of the car I assume because of heat and brake dust. Yet I believe it helped keep my wheels shiny longer.
