    I recommend 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 use Wheel Wax
    It cleans and protect nicely. The key is to apply thin and let it dry to a haze and then remove

    There's this stuff in a gray can. It's about 3" tall and 3" in circumference. I forget the name and I think Eagle one makes it. Inside is some cotton looking stuff and it's in a roll. You tear off a VERY small piece and rub it on your wheels. Do one wheel at a time and by the time you make it around to the first wheel, it's dry. Use a microfiber to get off the white residue. Never seen anything work better.

    When I don't have as much time, I use the same method but with Mother's.

    Love the never dull !! takes off all kinds of grime and stains, just dont go near paint with it, and do a small section then remove, repeat process to optimal results

    It gets break dust off, road grime, etc. You only want to use it on your chrome items. It leaves a shine like you wont believe.

    I'm a huge fan of meguirs but turtle wax chrome polish is the best if you get those rust spots on your wheels from the salt in the winter it will completly remove them iuse it on everything chrome and its less than 2 dollars at wal mart
