Default How to care for Magnum Wheels ?

How do you care for these wheels? I am used to full polish alum PM wheels so I have to keep degreasers away from that alum. I have hand polished them a little between tire changes. On tire changes they get buffed with the Mothers Alum polish and that works great.

The magnum wheel has this black PC so I thought I would search about latest wheel care. Are you using Alum Polish on these wheels and is it damaging the Black Finish?

Honda or Original spray polish is more than you'll ever need. They clean up remarkedly easy and look fine.

All the best,

doesn't the aluminum have a clear coat of paint. Take a nickel and see if you can scratch it. Nickel only cause it a smooth sided coin

You're joking right? Why would any sane person intentionally rub a nickel on their wheel to see if they can scratch it?

All the best,

how you going to tell if it has clear coat. Nickles don't have knurling on the edges so it doesn't scratch unless you over do it
