    Cleaning Chrome

    Hey, I've got these chrome wheels and the brake dust is really caked on. It almost seems like it is in the pores of the metal. Anyway, I've used a couple different wheel cleaners with bristle brushes to no avail. This is what is left over that just won't come off. Any suggestions on how to get this stuff off?





    TIA

    Man, those wheels have really been neglected. I have heard people having good results with Never Dull as far as cleaning wheels.
