    products to use on chrome rims

    I was wondering how or what you guys use to keep those big chrome rims Bling Blinging. Someone told me no matter what just use soap and water even if the bottle says safe on chrome rims. I thought there had to be soemthing else thats safe and effective. I want to keep the backs from piting too any techniques or products??

    I keep my chrome wheels "waxed" , I clean them with car wash when I wash the car, and you can always clay them if they are real dirty. If you keep them "waxed" cleaning will be much easier, synthetic waxes will last much longer than carnauba's, the synthetic holds up to heat much better

    Re: products to use on chrome rims

    I have found that mothers makes a good chrome / aluminium polish for really "dirty" wheels. I dont think i would use this on a regular basis since it seems to have "bite" when it comes to removing pitted black spots in rims. Once its clean i would suggest using Klasse AIO / SG or one of the Zaino products so that all you would need to do is use a little soap and water next time.

    I use a product called NevrDull, if I am not mistaken it is made by Eagle One products. It is really easy to apply and remove, and leaves behind a great shine. Since I use it every week, the chrome rims are looking at their best right now

    I use COLLINITE'S No. 850 Metal Wax. It's a wax that is made for stuff like chrome and aluminum. I think it works great. You can get the stuff at automotive paint supply shops or good speed shops.

    I have used the EagleOne for Chrome wheels to clean the wheels. I agree with hcvone, once you do a good cleaning a coat of good quality synthetic wax will be your (time saving) friend.
