Best care for chrome clad wheels
 
My optional 20" chrome clad wheels look nice and would like to keep them nice and shiny and free of oxidation and scratching. Anyone have a suggestion on what I should use on them for cleaning/polishing and the best methods to apply it? Thanks a bunch.

You can find info on this in the detailing section of the forum. But quick rundown, wash them often. Apply a cleaner after (I like Plexus). And give them a coat of wax periodically. Mine are 16 months old, and look great.

10-4 on the detailing section. Fairly new to the forum, I'm probably missing a lot navigating with this little I phone screen lol. Appreciate the feedback.

for cleaning, you have many options from soap and water with elbow grease, to chemical cleaners like p21s or sonax.

for polishing, i liketo use something like nevr dull or a mild cleaner/polish such as something like duragloss 105 total permformance polish. itleaves a little protection behind.

OR, my number one recommendation is to look to a sealant or wax for the wheel once they are clean. Collonite 845 is one that comes to mind, or Rejex, or permanent coating with Opti Coat.

I have a bunch of high end shit for the truck but I find that Windex works as well as anything else.
