How to keep Chrome Wheels Clean

Is there a way to keep your Chrome wheels lookin clean all the time?

Is there a wax or something on it that will keep the brake dust and other dirt from staying on them?

Thanks...

Do you use that power ball thing to get the polish off after it dries?

I tried that. It sucks. Mothers is good. There is also wheel wax out there that works well to keep stuff off. http://www.autogeek.net/wheelwax.html

Also use the mothers powerball with the polish, but make sure you have a good drill to
hook it to...
I have used it a couple times, but I bought the small one to also use
on the other small chrome pieces...

regular soap and water will do wonders. don't let road salt and break dust sit on it for exteded periods of time. use chrome polish ocasionlly to keep it perfect, andy car wax will be fine on wheels

The only way I found to keep my rims clean is park it in the garage and leave it there. :/
