    Best cleaner to remove rust from chrome plated wheels?

    I will admit that I am a total noob when it comes to wheel care, if I knew that the steel wheels would rust like this I wouldn't have bought them, but they were the cheapest and I'm a poop college student. My wheels are cragar Series 330. I've used turtle wax chrome polish and rust remover, but it just takes to much time to get just alittle bit off. So I was hoping some one could recomend a great rust remover and some thing to protect them from rusting when ever it rains or snows. Thanx

    Is this light surface rust or is this nice and thick?

    On the center caps there is just light surface rust but the biggest problem area is the grove aread see picture where I've added some red to point out the grove area. Thats where the thick rust is.

    Naval jelly is good at getting rust off of wheels. It will take some elbow grease though.

    I would consider P21S Polishing Soap. Also a good chrome polish and a Mothers Powerball should help. If its that bad, maybe its time to replace ??

    Exactly what I was going to suggest if they are bad, I had a set of S/S Cragars with some really bad rust. Used some Naval jelly as per direction and keeping a close eye on them and it worked well. I used it years ago so i have no idea if they have chaged the formula so I would suggest you do a small are then inspect it well before doing a larger area.
