Is this the chrome polish with more protection in the current Chrome Polish? It is more a spray on / wipe off product?

Al - it's a combo spray polish and instant detailer, which is unique in the category. It'll remove water spots, dried bug splats, road grime, etc, and still polish and provide protection.

It's great that it can be used on the plastic chrome used on many auto and truck grills, door handles, etc.; because regular chrome polishes are too aggressive and will damage the film.

This is a much needed product especially for chrome clad wheels which are becoming the norm..

On my chrome wheels, I do not have much build up since I was them enough but I almost always use detail spray or spray wax to keep them shiny. This sounds like the perfect replacement for this.

Chrome, though sometimes sparse on modern vehicles except for larger trucks and motorcycles, is something that needs routine detailing to maintain the shine and protection.

Mothers California Gold All-Chrome is a great answer for this solution!

It is just getting to the online etailers, and will be in Advance, Pep Boys and O'Reilly Auto Parts when they re-set for the Spring car care season...

I just got a used car with neglected, chromed-plastic wheel covers. After washing thoroughly with Simple Green, etc., they're still spotted, probably because the car has been through more than a few Iowa winters where the road salt was left on for days and weeks at a time.

Will All-Chrome make any difference? I saw it advertised in Motor Trend and read all about it here. But I can't be dropping $10 on it only to find out the damage is permanent.

Pictures of the hub caps would help, but generally speaking, if the chrome/plastic film is flaking off, there's not much you can do.

Oh, and welcome to waxforum.

It's not flaking off. It's just spotted (stained?).

Here's a link to a photo: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/497/1...c3f3a11e_s.jpg on Flickr

Try our Chrome Polish as it's got more polishing power, but it's hard to tell from that photo how they'll clean up.

It does look like the finish may be damaged, but also has a lot of brake dust buildup.

You might be well off using a wheel cleaner product first to help dissolve that brake dust and grime build up, but that may just reveal other issues you simply can't see yet. Our Foaming Wheel & Tire Cleaner would be worth a try -- so clean it, then try the Chrome Polish.

Chrome polish? I've always thought that would be too abrasive for the "chrome" plastics. Is Mothers Chrome Polish non-abrasive? (Or, are these shiny wheel covers actually chrome plated, such that they will stand up to common chrome polish?)

Mothers California Gold Chrome Polish is very gentle.

I finally got time yesterday to get to the chrome on my Ram. It's been a busy summer and fall, and no time to detail the way I like to! Anyway I used the All-Chrome to shine it all up after the car wash. I'm very happy with the results! One question before winter gets here, after I do this again should I do my routine of two coats of wax to help protect the chrome on the rims? Or will the All-Chrome save me the time to skip the wax?

Our California Gold Pure Brazilian Carnauba Wax would act as additional protection, and that would be a good idea in your area. California Gold Spray Wax would be 2nd best.
