Question Identify my used Work Wheels Please. How do I care for them?

Greetings,
I picked up a set of used Work Wheels yesterday. I'm no 'Baller" but man it felt good to buy a quality product yesterday.
I know nothing about them and would like to know:

1) What is the name of this series/model?

2) What are the appropriate caps for this model (I'd guess the "VS" caps are from a different set of wheels)

3) Approximate years made and value of them.

4) How do I care for them? (The backs are pretty dirty)

5) Must I buy expensive cleaners or are there some simple household/garage items that will do a fine job?

6) How do i get that lip to shine like it has batteries?

Thank you

Congrats on the purchase. You must be proud.

I would clean them with mild soap and water to remove any surface dirt or grime. If it is still there, then I would use some degreaser mixed 50/50 and then use a scrub brush with soft bristles. Once all the dirt and grime is removed, I would use a good over the counter polish and maybe the mothers powerball to give them a nice touch. I would apply this polish as the shine appears to be as good as it gets. Don't forget to clean the powerball in between the polishing. This will reduce buildup. Reapply as necessary.

I believe those are 2 piece welded 5 spoke Work Eurolines. You have the wrong center caps. Kind of rare since they're discontinued and most ppl remember the Euroline's as a larger faced wheel.

Looks like it is a mashup between a Euroline and a Meister.
I guess i did alright, those are two of my all time favorite wheels.

I haven't seen a set of those in a long time. They're pretty rare these days.

To remove the the heavy dirt - Get some sonex wheel cleaner, put that on it and let it sit and rinse. Then hit the wheels with some Megs mag wax.

True, I just realized the ones I posted are a bit different. Nice wheels none the less.

Kira,
I see you live in Osaka (awesome city, I was there after the Hanshin quake). If I knew about Work Wheels back then, I would have snuck some rare ones home in my Road cases.

Do you read Kanji? If so, Is the model of these wheels on the Kanji sticker?
