Just got a set of Wheel Vintiques and was wondering what everyone uses for polish/wax to protect the chrome and also doesn't leave a white residue.  Any suggestions?  thanks  -  Dave

I just use the wax I use on my paint as well, typically Meguiar's Gold Class Carnuba. It leaves no residue and gives a nice shine.  I was concerned about Wheel Vintiques chrome quality and reports of rust, so I always thoroughly dry my wheels well after washing too as the water will pool up near the seam.  After 12+ years, my wheels still look new.

Thanks, everyone, I'll get a good grade wax and probably get some of the spray wax to get down into the hard to reach spots.
