So far i've only washed it once in one of those pull up and do it yourself washing places with the high pressure hose gun. So far they've held up really nicely. I've had the plastidip on for like 3 months now. I would assume you could wash them with whatever you washed your wheels with before. I would just be careful with scrubbing them too hard.

Don't scrub, you'll start to tear it. Remember that it's a bit softer just like some vinyl than clearcoated paint

If you want an easy way to separate it from a raised surface ( tape, badges) with out scratching the paint. Just use a toothpick...
