It appears that the rims are clearcoated, I'm not sure on this. Do any of you use any type of chemical cleaner or is it just soap and water. Again, thanks in advance for any input.

They are not coated. If using soap and water satisfies you then your good.
I use mothers aluminum polish-paste type. Just did mine yesterday. takes about 30 minutes each wheel.

Never-dull will scratch aluminum. you may not see it but through time you will. I have a complete polishing set up, hand held (for large stuff like wheels) with 6-8-10 inch wheels and a bench polisher. I have several types of wheels and many flavors of compounds. Never-dull is good on rusted chrome or hard to remove debris-built up. I also have a wheel jig I use for wheels for a chrome like finish. It's power driven, takes a lot of the work out and does things really fast.
There is a lot of good polishes available now, I stick to mothers because it works and will not scratch. For just normal cleaning I use the mothers in the red plastic container. Does it good and doesn't take long. For a real high shine I use mothers billet.
If you want in a good detailed for wheels consider a 10 inch buffing wheel with red rouge.
With the center stand it makes it really easy to do.
Just a thought

dirtdobber, I have used never-dull for over 40yrs. It is made for aluminum. Still have some of the aluminum I use it on that is now 30yrs old and have never seen it scratched. You sure your polishing cloth did not have dirt in it?

Not that I do it every wash day, but I use Mothers and their Powerball. Works for me.
