    Chrome Safe Rim Cleaning Product?

    Hey guys, i just recently cleaned my daiy driver Formula this week and i noticed that the inside of my rims r digusting. So, i took of the wheels and tried to clean them w/ regular car detergent but it did not work all that well. I was wondering if there is a chrome safe cleaning product out there to really shine this inner rim area up.

    You need to use Nevr-Dull.

    It is the best I have ever seen. You just pinch a litte off Rub the wadding directly onto the metal and then use a clean, lint free cloth to wipe away the residue. You’ll be amazed at the intense shine you can achieve with Nevr-Dull.

    I found some good meguairs stuff too, but it is only for chrome. If u get some on ur rotors they will look terrible untill u take it 4 a drive and use ur brakes some.

    Nevr-Dull just try it

    Nevr-Dull is not expensive maybe $6. Trust me it will clean and shine like nothing you have ever tried. I used to spend forever on getting all the dirt and junk off my wheels. Found this stuff on the shelf decided to give it a try was extremely pleased.

    +1 makes it looks like your rotors have mold on them

    I went to the local K-Mart tonight as I was looking for a battery tester/charger...At the end of the aisle I saw car waxes etc and then saw Never-Dull by Eagle One. I read your post last night and immediately knew that is what you posted about...I picked up a can of it and it was $4.00. I have an old, old, stainless steel spoon all tarnished and just used it on that..Man, it really cleaned it up. Can't wait to try it on my rims. i didn't fine a good battery tester/charger but got Never-Dull.

    Thanks for posting about it.
