Default Brasso for Chrome Wheels?

I was using some normal chrome polish last night to try to tidy up an aluminum shower stall, but I noticed that when I switched to "Brasso" metal cleaner/polish that it worked a LOT faster than my chrome polish.

It says you can use it for chrome...do you think it would be safe to use on my chrome wheels to polish them up quicker than the chrome polish?

I know one thing about Brasso, don't use on anything with a clearcoat/laquer finish. Comes off real easy(meaning that the finish comes off, a no-no)[xx(]

To clean them, yes, but it offers no protection. I'd use regular car polish on them after they were clean.

if you want your wheels to really shine! [^] [8D]

Brasso actually takes away from the metal, it will eventually wear down the chrome and make it dull.
