Re: Chrome wheels

I've used stove stop cleaner on chrome parts of my truck. Works pretty good. Not sure how it will do on wheels but its worth a shot!

Re: Chrome wheels

Chrome wheels are difficult to deal to deal with. Should the slightest imperfection occur in the finish, you run the risk of contaminants getting between the chrome and the wheel, eventually causing the chrome finish to lift and peel away. So chrome-plated wheels need to be kept extremely clean to minimize this possibility.Using a specially formulated chrome wheel cleaner will lift dirt and grime off the surface without harming the chrome finish. Have you tried Mothers Pro-Strength Chrome Wheel Cleaner: Mothers® 05824 - Pro-Strength Chrome Wheel Cleaner ? It is formulated to work most effectively on all applications of chrome to penetrate and free brake dust, grease, dirt, and grime on spokes and other areas that are harder to reach.

Re: Chrome wheels

Sonax wheel cleaner is a great product to remove the dirt and grime. Then use wheel wax and quick detailer

Re: Chrome wheels

Wax will help any painted/chromed part from getting as bad.
