    Has Anyone Tried This Chrome Polish???

    I am about to take delivery of my used chrome Firehawk rims. I want to get these babies as new looking as I can. I see that everyone is talking big about the Mother's chrome polish. I was searching the web and came across some chrome polish made by American Racing. Has anyone tried this polish or heard anything negative about it? I attached a pic below of the bottle.. Anyone with info regarding same please respond!!!

    The exterior of Firehawk wheels are clear coated . So whatever you use remember that they are cleared. Treat them like paint not metal.

    I use Meguires NXT Metal Polish on my wheels for my truck and my car. I really like it, the shine is awsome. 2nd vote would probably have to go for Griots but you could pick up the NXT at anyauto parts store almost.

    I think the last time I polished I used blue magic brand. It was ok. I usually go to a truck stop and get some type of heavy duty polish that the truckers use on their tanks and aluminum rims........that stuff works pretty good. I'll get the name for you next time I pick some up, I think it might be mothers heavy duty polish.

    What you need is the polish that's in a small can and comes in wadded up fibers, looks like a rats nest. There are several on the market including Mother's and Eagle One, probably Maguires has their own by now too.

    The liquid stuff in a bottle doesn't work as well for whatever reason.

    It's called nevr-dull , made by eagle one. I would'nt use it on clear coated
    aluminum though.

    I use mothers for everything. Golf club shafts that have rusted a bit, wheels, exhaust tips, and the aluminium tunnel on my snowmobile.....the best in my opinion
