Thanks, I saw this too late. When I got the four wheels and center caps, they were very dirty. Probably 20+ years of brake dust and oxidation. I used EagleOne Etching Mag Cleaner to get them clean to the metal. Then I polished the machined surfaces with Mother's Aluminum Polish to remove any final oxides formed during cleaning. I wiped down the entire wheel with paint thinner, and am painting them with Rustoleum Crystal Clear Enamel. So far they look good. Also, I purchased the Toyota Lexus OEM Mag Lug Nuts from ezAccessory.com. You cannot use standard lug nuts from the auto parts store.
