I've used Eagle 1 products for my wheels. It works very well at getting most of the brake dust/dirt off. As for your trim piece, have you tried double stick tape ?

Hi,

I have the 17 inch high polished Aluminum iwith Bright Chrome rims. Would it be safe to use this stuff on them? How delicate is the chrome finish to solvents? I like the Armorall products very much.

regards,

Darren

Those dust shields are great, but for 35 bucks a pair, I think I'll just wash my wheels. Or ghetto something up myself....
