Suggestions for wheel chrome cleaner

    I have tried a couple different wheel cleaning products to try and shine up the chrome portion of my wheels with no success. Does anyone have a type of chrome cleaner that seems to work better for this? Seems like the dirt and brake dust is just burnt into these wheels.
    a bit tough to tell from this picture, but if you look towards the right side of the wheel where the camera flash is not so bright you can see what I am talking about.

    Thanks in advance!

    check with one the sponsers Adams polishes , if you have aluminum/ chrome wheels I think Eagle One had alum/ chrome cleaner polish mixed with a real fine wool.

    Pitting and corrosion to that level isn't going to come clean with just a cleaner, you'll need to put some work in with a polish to restore them completely.

    I would start with just a good soap and water cleaning, then take a claybar to the hoop to see where that gets you. A lot of times things like that are just stuck to the surface, but will come loose with clay. Once thats done you may want to give our 2 stage metal polish a try:
