What are people using to maintain there wheels?

I have a '11 LT2 RS with factory/optional polished wheels.

The wheels are clear coated, most wheel products I have seen are metal polishes, if i use a metal polish it will remove the clear coat.

I have been using Meguair's NXT 2.0 car wax and it seems to work well.

What is everyone else using?

So, from all the responses i received, I guess I'm the only one that waxes my wheels?

On my 69 SS396 (L-78) w/Cragars I used good all Dupont Chrome polish and Turtle wax;

On my 69 Sport Coupe, W/Ansen Sprints I used Turtle wax

On my 69 Z/28 (X-77) W/rallys I used Meguars Deep Crystal

I use all Adam's products. Was introduced by my brother and swear by them.

If they are clear coated, you cannot really polish them unless you do the same method as a paint correction on your paint's clear coat; which you could. You can wax any surface of your car though.

If your wheels are clear coated you can use a fine polish like you would use on the cars paint to remove light scratches and bring out the shine. By all means keep waxing them as it provides the clear a little protection from the elements etc.
