I recently bought a set of Work emotions cr-kai's for a price i couldn't pass on...they have a few nicks here and there but nothing too serious...I just wanted to know what i could use to clean the rims without causing any discoloration or damage to the wheels........

Also wanted to know what the best tire size to go with is, my rim size is 18x8.5
and i was told 225-40-18 was the best to go with....any pics of this size tires on 18x8.5 wheels....any info would help thanks!!!!!!!!!

I just use standard car soap (megs) and it works fine. If there is any grease/ tar/ misc, i usually get after with dawn soap. I primarily use a lambs wool applicator that I have specifically for rims. Also, be careful what tire shine you use because they can be corrosive.
