Hey guys, gonna wash the truck for the first time since I got it, and it has the factory chromed 20"s. Just wondering if anyone's tried the Turtle Wax Platinum Chrome Wheel Cleaner w/ Barrier Additive (long name, i know)??? Thanks in advance, gents!

Keep'em polished up with your choice. Makes it much easier to keep them clean.

so i tried the stuff on one wheel, removed absolutely nothing from the wheel...

so I took a towel and wiped off the next wheel, and it looked brand new...

so methinks I'm gonna get my monies back.
