Oem Black Zcp Wheels- Clean ?

Hey all- ... did a search but did not find what I was looking for:

Is there a product recommended and method to clean oem zcp black wheels?

I have tried a few products (not impressed) as they seem to leave a fine white film in spots... so willing to learn

Thanks in advance!

Did you try Sonax? It works really well on my dark gunmetal P40s. Not necessarily the same black satin finish, but no spots for me. I finish them off with Armor All rim protectant and they stay clean for weeks! Good luck!

Are these matte black rims as difficult/finicky to maintain as the frozen paints?

There are whole lines of detailing products for matte anything. Frozen paint is different than matte wheels for example
