Like an idiot I didn't think of the upkeep when I purchased my flat black Drag33's. My god I can detail and clean these like new and by the time I get home they look like I never even cleaned them! Anyone got any tricks here on how to keep these clean? Is there a special coating I can spray on them? Something, anything?

while doing some googling i basically came a conclusion that your best bet would be to use a brake dust cleaner/repellent and the other 3 options are using Mother's fx spray wax, a wheel cleaner from Eagle 1 , or just stick to the water and soap. and lastly do not use an waxes to clean them because i guess it leaves a residue on them

I would suggest becoming a member of a detailing car forum such as Mother's, meguires etc im sure there are others
heres the mothers one

How can you clean/detail a flat black painted wheels ? - Wax Forum

and another one i got off a different forum
Concours & Car Care - Rennlist Discussion Forums

let me know what works best as i too would have some matte black wheels in the future
