2011 Dodge Ram Chrome Clad Wheels

Question

My father inlaw has a 2011 Dodge Ram with the OEM Chrome Clad Wheels and after one year and a winter with salt covered roads they aren't as shiny as the day they left the lot and he knows about my Adams obsession and whats to know what I think he should use one them to bring back the shine.

 

First thing I told him was no harsh chemicals. I was thinking maybe just a good wash with a soapy water mixture like we do with clear coated wheels then maybe some brilliant glaze to make them shine a little more? Or maybe some sealant on there? What are your guys opinions?

 

EDIT-Would green wheel cleaner be okay to remove the brake dust?

GWC would be fine to clean these wheels. It is made to remove brake dust, and is a little gentler on the wheels than APC.

As for the shine, hit them with some FMP or Revive to bring back the gleam.

Thanks for the advice. I don't have any fine machine polish or revive. So I just placed a order for some revive and a applicator. Maybe for now I will use some green wheel cleaner, try some brilliant glaze, and then some spray sealant. He rarely hand washes his truck and usually just takes it through the automatic wash. So im sure he would be impressed if I just washed the wheels with some soap and water.

Hey Aaron, I can speak from experience. After one very mild winter, the Chrome Clad wheels on my GMC looked bad. I washed with Green Wheel Cleaner and they still looked dull. I then tried revive and the look like new again. Quick Sealant on top and they really do shine.

Thats the kind of info I was looking for. I ordered some revive and a blue applicator. I am hoping it will arrive in the next two days so I can clean the wheels on the weekend. How did you apply the revive and work it? Blue applicator?

I tried using the blue applicator with very limited success. Ultimately I ended up using an old micro-fiber towel to apply and polish with. Then used an Adam's Single soft to wipe clean.
