Default Keeping painted rims clean and shiny?

They seem to have become dull and faded and lost their "shinyness"...

For the guys who have their rims painted with Duplicolor from your local Autozone, how do you keep them clean and shiny?? It seems impossible getting the paint scratched up..

some wheels may loose their 'shinyness' because of the clear coat fades... which eventually happens.

from my experience, the less "cleaners" you use on your wheels... the longer the clear coat will last. cleaners tend to have more chemicals that just the regular 'ol soap/water/elbow grease.

i never repainted wheels... i don't think i ever kept a set that long
