Default Eagle One tire and rim cleaner

I have the 20" chrome clad wheels on my Ram and was wondering if you could use any old wheel cleaner on them. I ask because they are not "real" chrome and was kind of worried that the stuff I have (Eagle One rim and tire cleaner) might eat the cladding off. Any info is appreciated.

It is chrome, it's just on plastic vs. steel.

So you'll want to use a wheel cleaner that is safe for that material.

The chrome is "real". The cladding comes into play because it's esentially a cover that's permanently affixed to the steel wheel.

Just about every Eagle One product I've used has required going back with a Meguiar's product to fix.

That wheel and tire cleaner didn't eat through my chrome, but it did put a milky white finish that took some scrubbing to get off. All this happened the morning before the Gatlinburg Car Show of course...

Im a Meguiar's customer as well. I had good luck with their Hot Rims on a friends chrome-clad wheels.

I have stayed away from the Eagle 1 products, after a mistake on my part, it was the 2 part system, brand new chrome wheels on my 1956 chevy truck, i used part 1 & smiling, then i used part 2, ( the deactivating product ), apparently i did not quite all of the part 1 off, ruined rims, peeled the chrome after a couple days
