Ok, I kept my chrome AMG monoblock II wheels on a week too long and I had to drive through some post snowstorm muck on the roadways...it was dry most of the way but I did manage to get some road salt on my wheels. What's the best way to clean it off without turning a terrycloth into sandpaper? I'm taking them off this week and mounting my old wheels on, which I had to retrieve from storage. Thanks...

After a good washing, I would try some chrome cleaner or chrome polish. It's available at Autozone, Pep Boys, et al. Chrome cleaner has stronger chemicals in it that you really don't want to put on paint or clearcoat but it works great on chrome. Several people make it. It is usually a liquid that looks like car polish. Follow up with a coat of wax.

Bill had some good ideas. After washing them in the conventional manner you could: On a slightly less harsh note you can try some Flitz metal polish or even some Meguiar's #7. I know that isn't its normal use, but I've found that stuff works great on many tasks. In any case, once you do have them cleaned, a good coat of wax is in order.

Hope this helps...Lee
