Questions on cleaning, etc

Guys - I recently put some M Sport wheels on my car and had them powder coated graphite - looks good with the mineral white exterior. My question is - what product can I use to clean and wax the wheels to repel brake dust? I don't want to screw up the color and have to get them redone.

Similar question - the entire front/hood etc is clear bra wrapped - do I wax it just the same as the rest of the car? I want to avoid any yellowing.

Thanks,

Todd

Do not use carnauba wax on the clear bra. Instead, you can use a sealant like Klasse or Zaino. Ordinary waxes can apparently cause discoloration of the clear bra.

Nothing can repel dust better than a California dust buster. Wax helps but not by much. Stop using the brakes helps too but probably not an option. I had a buddy that clear bra his car; when it was time to take it off, it make the front end look dull permanently. Sort of like the new frost paint scheme!
