Chrome mastercraft wheels

What's everyone using to clean up your factory mastercraft chromo wheels??
Mine are a bit 'pitted' and just looking dull and sad and I was looking to clean them up and give them their shine back...

Once the chrome gets pitted, it will continue to be a problem. Never Dull is a great option. You obviously need to be careful about anything that will scratch the chrome. A blue silverstone-safe kitchen scrubber will help with stubborn corrosion.

Chrome wheels need to be washed with a sponge or cloth to remove road grime and brake dust (if so equipped) to keep them from pitting. A film of road grime builds up on the wheel's surface and collects anything it can to harm the surface of a wheel. When I sell chrome car and truck wheels, I tell my customers to keep a bottle of windex and a roll of paper towel in their vehicle and clean their wheels daily.
