    Chrome polish

    What do you use ?
    I need to do my wheels and am curious what you guys use.
    What about protection after the polish?

    They are pretty dirty in the picture

    •PSA:
    -It’s very difficult to polish/re-polish
    “decorative chrome”.

    •On the other hand:
    -I’ve found that, if used prudently (ie: with only
    slight pressure): Collinite Metal Wax #850; and
    Turtle Wax Chrome Polish & Rust Remover, will
    provide some valuable protection to clean decor-
    ative chrome.

    Re: Chrome polish

    Is the mothers powerball waste of time on these? I'm sure the wheels are made in China although I ran them this winter in Minnesota but I kept them clean
    and they are 100% corrosion free.
    The chrome seems decent imo

    From the shape of the spokes, I‘d say the PowerCone would be a better choice than the PowerBall.

    I have found many chrome polishes too coarse and aggressive for my tastes and only use them on chrome in really bad shape. For decent chrome my choice is always an AIO. Meguiar's OTC Cleaner Wax in the maroon bottle to be exact.

    Re: Chrome polish

    I use simichrome and believe it or not DuPont OTC chrome polish
    I’ve also used the 3 different glip tone polishes...they are really easy to work with and great results
    I’ve used them by hand and with a machine
