Black alloys

Any recommended detailing items for my black alloys? I have BH auto wheels. Planning on using jet seal for shine?

Treat them like you would your car paint. Some black alloys can be very soft and mark easily.

Wouldn't bother with JetSeal, barely did anything when I used it.

Find it hard to see past ceramic coatings on wheels, especially black.

Yup black alloys ceramic coating a must. If u use something like an ez brush on em they'll mark badly. Something like C5 or like and u'll be fit to nearly clean with just snowfoam and pressure washer no contact

Will fallout remover leave stains or cause damage? Any products to avoid? Cheers

they shouldnt do if you stick to the likes of iron x etc, dont let it dry on. I currently have Autofinesse's Iron Out which is decent and can dry out but as long as your out of direct sunlight, the surface is cool and you use plenty of water afterwards. But just doing a wheel or two at a time will be easiest way to stop this.
