The Trophy caliper bolts come with a protective Geomet coating. After several years, the bolts on my Trophy calipers (Corvette C6) have no corrosion.

I do NOT use any wheel cleaners. I wash my wheels and calipers with the same soap I use on the car's finish - Griot's Garage car wash. For the occasional touch-up, I use Speed Shine. So far, so good.
