Best wheel cleaner?
 
Alright, so now that I have new wheels (and chrome at that), I wanted to know what's the best wheel cleaner? None of that stuff ever worked on my old wheels and it pissed me off to no end. But, I figure that the chrome would be easier to clean.

Also, has anyone used that Armor All Wheel protectant stuff? I guess it supposed to keep dirt and grime off the wheels, but I don't normally buy into that kinda stuff.

Thanks :smileup:

Lining it up for parades are ya?!?

You can clean it with polish or even some of that synthetic detail spray. Chrome is easy to take care of. Just a lot of time, Lots.

Lol I gotta keep it lookin good! Gonna get her all waxed up tomorrow since we're not forecasted for snow anytime soon.

I figured you could do that. I use that turtle wax ice synthetic detailer on my truck and it says safe on chrome so I'll try that.

I use the TW ice spray wax after every wash. It does a nice job. Just a note however, after I have gone over the whole truck I take the two Microfiber towels I used (one to put on and one to take off) and clean my wheels with them. They really pop.

I use the Chemical Guys line of products. I love their stuff and it all works. I think the wheel cleaner I have is called Diablo something by Chemical Guys. The stuff is wicked. You spray it on and then let it do its work and then spray it off.

Sounds like a degreaser somewhat. Where do you pick that up?
