Question Alloy Wheel Care

Hey everyone! Hope someone can help me with this....
I've just bought some R111 Star Bullet alloys for my 2008 Mini Cooper and they look totally frickin awesome, the thing is, I wasn't told how to care for them. Due to them being matte black, I don't really wanna try and use a cleaner that says "keeps your alloys glossy". Spoken to a mate at work and he recommended using a cleaner then a sealant and also maybe a wax to keep them in tip top condition, if anyone can recommend a reasonable product or products that's available in the UK that would be great. So far I've been told to use either Maguires or Poorboys products but have no idea which products in their ranges.
Any help greatly appreciated!
