Default Surface rust removal

Any good products out there? I spent 2 hours yesterday rubbing my fingers to the bone getting surface rust off my chrome wheels.

I don't wanna do that again.

Regular light polish jobs do wonders, as well as ceramic brake pads, and regular scrubbing at the wash. I am going to be having fun with this myself here now I've started driving the 99 again.

keep them clean, then wax them. regular wipe downs after that is all you will need.

I've got the polished version from 95-99. I have a mental pic in my head of them on a 00+ black SLE/SSEi in a snowy setting that actually looks good to me.
