What polish do I use on these rims?

I think im finally going to be able to install my new summer rims this weekend. Before I do I want to give them a good polishing/waxing. I've been trying to search out the best stuff to use, when I discovered there's a difference between clear coat and non clear coat polishes..
The description just says black powder coated with machined faced... So what do I want to use? Im wanting to do this tmw so any suggestions of what to use need to be able to be found at Napa, carquest or auto zone... Thanks guys!

The black machined Buckshot has a clear coat. A good carnauba wax would be the best to use.
