Anyone have stainless on their rims? What's the best way to get them cleaned up and looking nice? It's hard to wash them and get them dried without leaving spots. I don't want to use anything on them that will scratch the surface. Is there any type of polish that can be used?

Yes, go to the dollar store and get the really fine steel wool and get your favorite wheel cleaner and clean them up with that, I did the same to some chrome rims i got off Craigslist and they look brand new, it takes all the surface oxidation off great.

i would have to say +1 on the steel wool pad.. i have a Corsa exhuast on my SS and it has the stainless steel tip.. i use a steel wool pad on that and no scratches on my tip.. i did the same thing on my Dodge Dakota Show Truck.. It had a full chrome smoothed front bumpar.. used steel wool on that all the time, no scrathes...

so i guess the choice is yours Nick.. as you can see there are diffenrece in opinions.

:iagree:I cleaned many fire stained kitchen hoods in my profession and used many products including steel wool (very fine) and rubber polishing pads and cleaning rub. I see no reason not to use steel wool on stainless!:thumbsup:
