    When i cleaned the car at the weekend, i noticed that the alloys do have a large amount of scratches/lines over them.
    The car is a 07 plate, so not that old, what is the best way of cleaning and removing these??

    Thanks Dodge

    Treat exactly the same as you would paintwork; you'll need to polish them to remove the defects. I would start with a finishing polish like Menzerna Final Polish II applied using the white side of a German Pad, and if that failed to shift everything, then I would move down to a light compound like Menzerna Intensive Polish (applied in the same way). Once the correction was done, I'd then seal the alloys with a Wheel Sealant to protect against the effects of brake dust and road grime. Hope that helps, a lot more info on polishing here...
