take your wheel off spray some high quality chrome wheel cleaner on it, let it sit for 1 min or 2 (fallow its directions) then use a brush with long brushes on it to reach past the spokes to get inside to the dish

after you are done i like to dry the wheel with compressed air
then put some chrome polish on what ever you can reach..with your fingers

hay i use lowrider wire cleaner on my spokes it's the best on chrome wheels i wouldn't use acid because i used those before and my rim was changing colors so i had to buy a new set and i use only the best now may be a little expensive but it works about 30 dollors a bottle.

i just bought some eagle one
tire and rim cleaner orange bottle cost 10 bucks for like 700ml

anyways i was gunna hose my car down first cause it was dirty then spray the shit on cause i aint washed my car in like 3 weeks cause of all the snow just gets dirty anyways so i decided to spray it on and let it sit and spray down the whole cause

so i let ir sit for like 3 minutes then i hosed it off and OMFG
my tires look like they are new the white walls are so white now...
and the rims just bling! mind you i used 1/4 of a bottle cause they where dirty and sprayed them when they where dry

but fuck they look sweet now well worth the 10 bucks...
