I have some newer **** cepeck chrome rims and there starting to get some surface rust on them. Just wondering what i can due to prevent this and to get it off. I tried some soap an water and a lil elbow grease and got most of it off but there is still a lil bit on them. And also i have two pair of the same rims that are stained due to something the car washed used. so i was also wondering what i could us on those to get those stains off. Any info would be great.

Have you ever polished them?? Try cleaning/polishing them up and using a finish cote of Reg turtle wax.

If the polish doesnt remove the rust then try a little comet on a wet cloth, this has worked for me in the past. Definetly keep them waxed, it will keep them from rusting and help keep the brake dust off the wheels.

Always wash in sudsy water. Rinse and wipe to restore the shine. Never use abrasive cleaners on chrome as it will scratch and dull the surface. Use baking soda to remove gummy residue sprinkled on a soft damp cloth or sponge. Vinegar can also be applied if you rinse and buff with a soft dry cloth. Difficult spots can use a metal polish made especially for chrome and soft metals. For baked on grease on small appliances try a mixture below. Baked on grease may require several applications.
Vinegar: To clean chrome, wipe with a soft cloth dipped in undiluted white or cider vinegar.
Baby Oil: Apply baby oil with a soft cloth and polish to remove stains.
Aluminum Foil: Briskly scrub rust spots with a piece of crumpled aluminum foil, shiny side up.
