Hi Insane, go to my web site and hit me up, I will set you up with some stuff I use on ALL the Chrome detail. It has a little solvent properties (to clean) PLUS some added polymers for protection, and shine. This is about the 50th chrome polish I tried, now I have 49 I no longer use. Gary

Gary - Is this new "super chrome cleaner" safe to use on the chrome clad wheels?

Anyone have a good way to clean in the pockets around the lug nuts, other than removing the wheels from the car???

I have used a old toothbrush, but it only gets the sides. When Gary posted the detailing tools, it also contained Q-tips. That may work[:I].

These are the turbo wheels, not hubcaps. I have tried the Q-tips with no luck. The crud seems to buildup thick there, but I have not tried the old tooth brush, thanks for the tip.
