I can get a killer deal on these 22'' 330's but they have been sitting in a barn for a while now, covered in spider webs, dust, the chrome feels like it has rough water stains...(there's no pits in the chrome and no scratches that i can tell)
How would you guys clean these up, tools, polishes, etc. lemme know!

(oh and killer deal 300$, some one was gonna ask) :favorites37:

try a clay bar and then use a wax or wheel sealant.

First of all, the lips aren't chrome, they're polished. So if you use a cleaner on them, make sure it's non-acidic.

Always start with the mildest media that will get the job done. Spray with water, let a wheel cleaner dwell on it for a few minutes, spray off, then wash with car soap and water IMO. Then reassess.

You'll definitely need an aluminum polish for the lips when you're done.

Good luck!

Soap and water cleaning to start.

Clay to remove any bonded contamination.

Follow up with metal polish (#1 and #2 if using our stuff)

Then finish with a wax or sealant and they should be good to go.

Nothing on the lip appears to be so bad that clay and polishing won't correct it.
