Default 2003 wrx wheel finish - conencus cleaner choice?

Hey folks. Two questions:

1. what exactly is the finish of the 2003 WRX wheels?

2. is there a concensus choice for cleaning (the above finish) wheels?


Cheers!

so the key is something that is 'clear coat safe', correct?

Simple Green Max would qualify, iirc from reading the bottle.

i didnt see a Sonax where i was. I went with the Auto Glym custom wheel product. Worked really well, AFAIK. There were some 'stubborn' spots, on the tight inside area of the split forks. Seems to be a trouble spot on each one. Not sure if it's still dirty, or some paint corrosion/peel. I'll have to have a closer look.

DIdnt want to scrub too hard, etc. and make any paint issue worse.

Other than that, nothing left on em now
