To those with painted rims...(REM) lol

Alright I just painted my 17in white rims to gunmetal/graphite using the duplicolor wheel paint stuff I got at autozone (good stuff) rims came out amazing (will post pics later) but I was wondering if there was anything special I need to clean the wheels with or anything to maintain the wheels without a lot of touch up.
