I found another good way to get rid of rust and plague on chrome(and not just chrome) rims! It's steel wool! But steel wool should be the finest grade: 0000(four times 0). It could be sold in Home Depot or any other department stores. Guys on YouTube are doing great job with this product to clean rusted chrome!

My Hummer is H2 2003 Black. My wheels size is R22 with chrome rims. I couldn't wait for spring to come! I want to try to bring back my recently shiny and nice chrome rims back to normal shiny conditions!

Today I had day off so I spent almost whole day to clean my chrome rims from vaseline I applied before winter. It was really hard job to clean rims from jelly petroleum, but I did it and even try to polish chrome from black pitting dots with steel wool! But to polish rims I need another day!

There is a shop not far from my place that powder coats. 17" rims are about $125.00 sand blasted and coated what ever colour you want and takes about a week.
