Default Any good wheel polish?

I've got very very light scratching on my chrome wheels. Does anyone have a suggestion on good polish to clean them up? I have some Mothers I tried, and it was worthless.

Wenol is pretty good stuff if you can find it in your area...best places to look for that are some of the hole-in-the-wall auto parts places.

Definitely not aluminum wheels. I'll see if I can find Wenol. They are very light scratches, like someone washed them with a stiff brush or something.

Most of the searching for removing fine scratches in chrome wheels indicates that the scratches will never come out. Some have tried jewlers rouge and other fine abrasive polishes.

If you have some Zaino you might try multiple coats of Z5 followed by two coats of Z2 Pro.

Hmm, I'm surprised I didn't see that one. But yes, consensus seems to be that they won't come out.
