What to use to clean Cragar wheels.

I was hoping someone might be able to tell me how, and what to use, to clean my new set of Cragar wheels. I've been wiping them off each time I drive the car but know there is probably some kind of wax or cleaner I shoudl be using on a regular basis.

Re: What to use to clean Cragar wheels.

When I brought my ss around 5 or 6 yrs back, I got a pack of mothers or megaures car polish with instructions from Crager to keep a good coat of polish on them
So I polished mine, every week for about 6 weeks, letting the polish harden before the next 'coat'.
I only use magures car wash...its a system like modern car paints....there car wash oly cleans do to their polish, detergent just clean...everything lol

Re: What to use to clean Cragar wheels.

I use Mother's Chrome Polish, works very well. Then I use corn starch to remove any hazing or remnanats of polish. This works very well.

Also, if you have lots of brake dust on any wheels the Turtle Wax Wheel Cleaner Foam works incredibly well. Very impressive product imo.

Brake dust, I find washes off with little effort with road films etc once there is a good build up of polish.
Keep in mind that these polish systems , like paints systems are intollerant to other products and mix and match.

Are they chrome? aluminum? painted? makes a difference!
