Carbon Wheels

I just bought a set of Dymag carbon wheels. Is there any advice on how to treat them ? Good chemicals/bad chemicals. Special treatment when changing tires? Stop and check every time I hit a pot hole ? Balancing ?

You might mark the tire at the valve stem to check for slip between the tire and the rim. I've seen it on bikes that spend time on the track.

Some of tracks around here don't allow cf wheels, then again, they make airplanes and two stroke reeds out of CF these days.

Use chalk on the tire sidewall for marking- that's what I use for autocross when measuring tire roll-over.

Any chemical that is safe on your baby's ass is OK. Otherwise....
