Default Question about new wheels

So I just got some new powder coated wheels not to long ago and I am getting them put on as soon as my new tires come in. Before I put my new wheels on should I get a good coat of wax on them, both on the front as well as on the back, to help with cleaning break dust off. Or is there anything I should do before I get them put on? This is the first set of rims I have ever purchased so I'm trying to cover all bases and make my life easier down the road as well as make my wheels look damn good lol

Never clean them with harsh chemicals. I would wax them when you wax the car.

Just use soap and water, and a rag, and hand dry them all of the time.

Clean the back of the wheel with soap and water then dry. Cut a piece of cardboard that fits snuggly inside the wheel and push it in to block the spokes. Spray the inside and back of the wheel with either gloss or satin (your choice) clear coat. After the clear coat dries apply a coat of polymer sealant. Road grime, brake dust, etc will hose right off with minimal effort. For the powder coated face use a mild soap and water and wax often.
