I use windex, then put a good paint sealant on them and then a coat of wax. Protects well and the brake dust and crap just seem to rinse off.

A damp cloth and loads of baking soda. Rinses right off and and makes all the chrome really shine.

I did not even notice they were plastic chrome wheels till later. What's up with that??? To bad my 1996 ram wheels are not 20's. I would switch them out. I have been thinking about real wheels. To many things in the way at the moment though.

Me...

I use an aerosol cleaner/polish that I get from the local Honda motorcycle dealer. I use it all over the truck for a quick clean.
