I never use anything but soap made especially for cars, soft sponges and micro-fiber towels.

I agree with CREWZIN, all I use is MEGUIAR'S car wash only. I think some people put to many polishes and sprays on chrome. It builds up and in my opinion dulls the shine over time. Just my opinion. These wheels have been on the car for about 3-1/2 years and shine like crazy. I also use micro fibers to dry, but I use a casmere mitt to wash.
PS The best thing I did to keep my rims looking great is to change the pads to rebestos ceramic pads. It is unreal how little dust comes from them, as a matter of fact I get none to speak of.
