Southern MC brushed finish wheels....care?

Thinking about the brushed finish wheels by Southern MC. Has anyone had experience with these wheels, or finish, and how is it to care for. Thought they would look bad ass with a black denim finish on my future RG. Randy at Southern said that the aluminum was heat treated and only takes soap and water and to be dried with a microfiber towel and baby powder.

Any help appreciated!!

If there not clear coated you could probably use a mild Scotch bright on them to keep them looking good

I'd wax them with a few coats of a good wax first and then wipe then down weekly until they looked like they needed a polishing and polish them. If they are powder coated they are probably a lot easier to keep clean than raw aluminum. I am not sure how they sell their wheels so inesxpensively but I wonder about the quality of the aluminum they use for those prices.

Probably not a good idea to put wax on brushed aluminum.
I have been running Southern Motorcycle Works wheels now for a bit with absolutely no issues. They are good quality forged wheel blanks. They polish up really easily and hold there shine nice (small pores) I am switching my 21" Octane cross cut for a 23" Octane cross cut. If I told you the price SMW charged me of just the wheel and no hubs you would fall over LOL

I have contrast cut Octanes on my Lowrider and plan on getting a 21" for my FLTRX. Excellent quality and amazingly fair pricing.
