I have always kept a roll of paper towel and a bottle of spray cleaner in my vehicles with nice wheels for touch-ups.
I have found natural sponges at Bed Bath and Beyond for a little over $12 every time I needed a new one. Look in the bath supply section.

Powder coating is a great option that is not ridiculously expensive. Was thinking about powder coating my trailer rims black, but think I am just going to paint them for now since I need a few other goodies for my trailer. Ill post when I am done. Have to get the tires mounted first.

I'm not sure how big of a tire will fit without raising the truck.
If you tell me what year your truck is, I can let you know how big a tire will fit.

You can go with 275/70R18 (33.27" x 10.94") for a taller look or 305/60R18 (32.44" x 12.44") for a wider look. These specs are for a Nitto Tera Grappler. Different brands have slightly different specs, but these sizes will fit.

Not entirely related, but has anyone put a levelling kit on their truck. I was considering, but I keep reading things about how bad they are for your front end components. Ball joints etc.

I have one on my tundra. No issues as long as you do it correctly.
