    any good name brand chrome polish should work along with bug/tar remover for the tips. i like the meguiars nxt wax but i'm sure there are going to be people who dissagree. can't give ya any advice on what to use on wheels i just wash em.

    Thanks silverautorex. At least now I have an idea of what to look for when I'm @ AutoZone.

    Mother's Mag Polish works great on chrome stuff too. It takes a little while to buff it out, but it really brings back the shine. It will get rid of small rust spots also.

    Good looks FryHazard, I'll see which best fits my needs....I hate that the tips got dirty so fast... looks like I'll have to shine these things on a weekly basis.

    If you use a good polish on them, they should shine up with a good hand-washing once in a while. The car wash wand won't do the job on chrome if you really want it to shine.

    Soft Scrub.

    You probably use it on your Stainless Steel sink in the kitchen. It's extremely cheap and works very well. I make sure the surface is wet and dampen the sponge or whatever you use to apply and always had really great results and never had a problem with it causing extra scratches.

    I have always been a fan of NevrDull polish. I have used it on my SPT with great results. It looks like a mirror, even shinier than the day I got it brand new.
