I was ready to have my wheels re-chromed, and that stuff brought them back from the dead. Works best if you wipe an area with the wadding to wet the surface and let it sit for 30 seconds or so before you start polishing.

this worked well on chrome wheels with no issues? the escalade rims are starting to look dull and i was hoping to work on them this weekend

Both of my 03 Bonne'* have chrome rim'* and both could use some polishing up. Those wouldn't have a clear coat would they?

I have been using something I suspect GXP-V and Sawgunner used often at basic training. This stuff works well on the Bonny'* chrome rims, took off years of neglect. well....
