What product to use for cleaning Jaguar XJ6 wheels

Hi everyone

Needing some help and recommendations on safe products I can use to clean polished alloys, Jaguar XJ6 to be specific.

Would something like Gyeon Iron or Angelwax Bilberry be ok?

I thought I would double check prior to using in case of chemical stain or unwanted reaction.

I’ve attached a photo of the exact wheels



Thanks!

When you say polished, are they actually bare aluminium, or painted and lacquered? They don't look like bare alloy to me, which suggests you should be ok with any normal wheel cleaner...

Probably not the best photo.

They are machined alloys (shiny and polished style)

I’ve attached another photo which may help.

Thanks guys.

So Gyeon Iron/Sonax Wheel Clean/Iron X is a no go for these wheels?

I find that the iron x type products are really good for cleaning alloys.

I have not experienced any ill effects from using it at all on alloys but my alloys have the factory coating on them.

I like the dragon breath one because it is thick enough to paint on with a brush rather than spray it all over your breaks and discs.
