ford lariat rims

mothers and eagle one both make a great rim cleaner and polish. takes elbow grease but I have used the eagle one myself and it will make those rims shine brighter then brand new. What ever you use becareful and to not remove the clearcoat that is on the rims. If you accidently remove that you will be polishing them rims more often then you turn them down the road.

I've been using eagle one's chrome polish. Also eagle one has a wadding polish that works really well on chrome.

yeah I'm with you, having a multi-ability polish is nice. I've got like 10 in my cabinet.

Go to the dollar store, dollar general, or family dollar and get a cleaner called "Awsome" . It will clean anything that can be cleaned and only costs $1.00. I use it to clean the brake dust off my white letters and rims and works really well for the black streaks on my travel trailer. Just my two cents for something cheap

As of yet I haven't found anything that it harms. But as with anything, I would try it on a small area to make sure or better yet, try it on someone elses wheels. I've been using it on mine for a year now with no problem so I think you'll be ok.
