Hi my name is Nick Charette and I am here at Concord Auto Spa and I am going to show you how to polish a chrome rim. Basically you start off with cleaning the rim first. You want to rinse it down and then you want to take a wash rag to it but hopefully not the same one as you are going to use on your vehicle's paint surface. Just go over every spoke, the middle, everything and then you are going to want to rinse that down and dry it once you have done that and then you take your metal polish which is a polish and a protectant and it helps keep stuff off of it and it will make it shine and look really good. You want to shake it up really good first and you take some. I like to apply a little bit to a towel on the corner and find something to work with, bunch it up in the towel and take the section that you want to do. We are going to do the center cap and you just do circular motions all around it. You are going to start to get a black residue on the towel and on the rim itself that just tells you that it is cleaning it, it is polishing it and it is protecting it all three in one. Eventually it will start o fade away and you don't have to wait until it is all gone and faded away but you can if you'd like depends on how much you want to get into it. This one is pretty much gone. There is some dirt on it. Flip it over to a clean side of the rag and you wipe the rest away and you are left with a smooth shiny surface that is absolutely 100% better than if you didn't polish it and/or clean it and that is basically how you would go about polishing a chrome rim and making it look real good.
