    I use Mother's billet on them. Much more pricey, but works SO much better.
    Mini-powerball as well.

    I use a combination. I used mothers billet for awhile but then came across a product called metal gloss. Theres a polish and a sealant allowing up to 6months I believe in between polishes. I'm not 100% sold on the sealent but I do like the polish. If my rims are real bad I use the mothers billet first then use the metal gloss. The metal gloss gives an amazing shine to them but does not do all that well with removing heavy oxidation, with my car being a DD they can get pretty nasty at times and I have found that combination of both polishes works very well.

    I would rather polish than have them start chipping chrome off.

    I have a set of polished and chrome. Chrome is less maintenance but doesn't look near as good as polished.

    He actually does his own wheels. He doesn't trust me with them

    Wouldn't go that far.
    We have tried some products though for sure.

    Mothers billet has worked best on my wheels.
    I have this cotton polish stuff (Heavy metal I think) that surprisingly worked well for really tough spots. Didn't shine that great though.

    I think after you did them with the Powerball and the Mothers Billet Polish they came out awesome if I recall correctly...
