Default Chrome Rims...best product(s)/way to cleam w/out damaging??


Having some issues cleaning the interior part of the chrome rims...have only used mild cleaners/soft towel...never dealt with shiny chrome rims before, and don't want to damage/ruin them.

Thoughts on the best products/ways to clean some of the spots on the inside part of the rim(s)??

Thanks.

Try Nevr-Dull by Eagle One. Found all over, $5.99/can.

These are not chrome. The C5 wheels did not come with the chrome option. These have a clear coat finish and need to be taken care of as you would the paint on the car.

Wash them with a Ph balanced car wash soap, clay them and keep a sealant on them for protection.

^^Do what Jim said. I usually also get some finishing polish with a 3 inch pad and go over them before using sealant.

You may need an iron removing wheel cleaner if you have any stuck on brake dust so I'd wash and clay first to see how they look. If you are still left with some embedded iron then look into one.

Thanks for confirming Jim's info, and the input on how to properly clean.

Don't know if you saw my other post, but I inherited the car from my Dad, and am in uncharted territory :-); but want to make sure I keep the car protected and in great condition.
