Wax them as you would the body of your car. DO NOT use a California duster on them. Wash them, after rinsing off the brake dust and use what ever car wash you use. Keep two wash mitts one for the body and one for the wheels. Don't use the wheel one for the body of the car due to the small shavings of metal from the rotors. I use Zaino on my wheels, after driving from Pa. to the AC car show last year, I had very little brake dust that stuck to the rims. Bill

John, I also Zaino my chrome wheels and I did the same thing when I had my C5 with chrome wheels. Just make sure you clean the brake dust off of them after every drive if you can. What I do is use the Zaino detailer between drives. It'll make them pop, and keep them looking good longer.

Great Advice...But the only reason you didn't have brake dust is because you didn't drive fast enough to use them...<grin>
