You can lightly wax them too; it helps keep stuff from sticking on them for a couple of weeks at least...

Good question, but too late for mine. I have Konig's, and they are chipped and sand blasted badly. When the winter tires come off and before the summers go on, I'm having them painted by a body shop down the road. Didn't ask how much, just know they need to be re-painted. RP (I'll check back in the spring!!!)

anodizing loves wd-40 and or light oils although it will atract dirt quicker.
