Chrome Polish

What has anyone found to work well for buffing or polishing water spots and general road junk off chrome wheels. Tried Never Dull and Mothers chrome polish on one of those polishing balls and it does shine them up well but does not remove spots.

Re: Chrome Polish

Re: Chrome Polish

Thanks guys, The polishes I've used so far do make them shine really well but I'm looking for something that will cut the spots a bit better without scratching the chrome.

Re: Chrome Polish

The Adams metal polish I have seems to do the trick, especially if you get both Metal Polish #1 &#2.

Re: Chrome Polish

I don't know if it works on chrome as well but I always throw some wax on my wheels after I polish them. Helps with water spots a little.... imo. Aluminum wheels btw.
