crome protection

well I finally got my pickup washed after the big snow storm. amd I noticed that I have a little bit of serfice rust showing up on my crome wheels probably from all the salt they put on the road. It should all pollish out easily but Is there any thing I can put on them to keep it from comeing back. I was thinking about waxing them real good but didn't know it that would do any good or not.
Thanks

Pick up a can of Eagle one nano-polish with anticorrosion. It doesn't shine em up very much but it sure does protect the shiny stuff during the winter. I get mine from Advance auto but I'm sure most of the auto stores carry it or can get it.

Go to a local truck stop and pick up a product made by Long Haul. I think thats the name. I use the wax and other cleaners on my tow truck, and it still looks great for being a 95 with 415K. They should have something for chrome, since most heavy's have chrome stacks.

i have heard of guys spraying there rims with wd-40 about everyweek and they have had really good luck with it. they wont look clean, but they will still be nice in the spring. you can also use zoop sealer. you can get it online.

Thanks everyone I Looked all over for the eagle one nanopolish today but didn't have any luck. I dont think the wd-40 will work out to well I live on a gravel road, but I think I'll head to the nearest truck stop and see what I find there.

My dad used to rub and spray used motor oil on all of his aluminum and stainless on his Peterbilt and 48' Ravens Flat.. and that's what worked great.. course it took a month to get the s**t off after winter but it was worth it... They dump so much salt here in Pa that you have to do something to protect the shiny stuff..
