Anyone have any other techniques of cleaning chrome wheels. I have been using ammonia free windex and it works but if there is something else out there that gives a greater shine, I would love to know. I am afraid to use chrome polish.

Why are you afraid to use a chrome polish? Treat your wheels like the finish on your car. I would start off by getting surface clean. I would do this:

1.Wash
2.Clay. Yes I said C L A Y the wheel.
3. Use a chrome polish. I like Eagle One's Wadding Chrome polish. Mothers make a great polish too.
4. Layer with a good wax. Pick your choice.

Thx for all the advice. I was originally told never to wax a wheel because if there is water anywhere on it when it is done it will seal it in and cause corrosion. I guess the key is to make sure the wheel is totally dry. I will give the clay and chrome polish and wax. I agree the clay will remove all the old brake dust.

Eagle One makes good tire cleaners. I use their aluminum cleaner to great effect, I would try their chrome one.
