Default Matte black machined polished wheel cleaner or protectant?

Just got this wheels from Giovanna and they are matte black with machined polished lip and face. I have seen some white spots and watermarks. I just wanted to clean them properly and have it maintained. Whats the best product to use?

Thanks in advance.

I would consult with the wheel manufacturer.

Without knowing exactly what the finish is, the most I could recommend would be car wash and our California Gold Showtime Instant Detailer.

I have some matte black wheels on my utility vehicle. I cleaned it up, put Mother's Spray Wax on all smooth painted and plastic surfaces and the wheels.

When I was washing it, I had a scare when the wheels look they had water spotted from the wash but the spots disappeared after it dried. The water seems to wet matte differently. I also also interested what to use on matte wheels.

John Deere provides no advice.

Here it is all shined up..

Yes, Spray Wax should also be fine on the Giovanni wheels. Avoid anything with polishes or that would leave a residue.

Curious to know what you ended up doing to clean and polish/ wax. I have the Dramuno-6's and in the same boat you are.

As a note, those Giovanna's are semi gloss black without a clear. I just spoke to WTW (Giovanna MFG) and they confirmed this.
