Default Chrome rim treatment.

As you guys know I have gotten new chrome rims. These are the first Chrome rims I have ever owned, so I want to start of on the right foot. What orducts do you guys use to protect and shine up your rims?

I have only used Zaino on my chrome wheels. It will not melt like wax when the wheels get hot and cleanup is a snap. Brake dust may cling to the wheel but is removed very easily.

I clean with Meg'* Chrome rim cleaner. aka Hot Rims. and a soft brush for rims. Follow the directions and you'll be a happy camper. Although...I'd use the Zaino any day.

As a matter of fact, I visited a friend of mine last weekend & he happened to have Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish, which he asked me to try on my chorme wheels.

Let me tell you, I was so impressed that I dashed to the nearest Canadian Tire Store & bought myself one.

This thing did an amazing job. Not only did it take all clean my wheels so well, but it gave them that showroom shine.
