Ya, that'd be fine. I got my truck washed at the car wash today and the went home and waxed the truck sprayed armor-all on the tires(with over spray on the wheels) put some mothers on a rad and wiped them down real good and now they're realy shiny.

Eagle 1 makes a decent cleaner for bare aluminum polished wheels. Make sure the cleaner you buy says it is safe for that type of wheel.
