What should I use to clean the wheels on my 02 Solid wheel V-rod, before storing it for the winter?? Also, what is a good product to clean chrome with??

I Tried Mothers and wasn't overly impressed.

I've heard the best stuff is called BOMS away and Captain Richards Best.
I have'nt been able to locate these in Australia as of yet, I have sent them an email just this weekend asking if they'll ship to AU.

The stuff I have been using atm which I find HEAPS better than Mothers is a German product that has been out for years and years called Autosol.

I find Autosol requires less elbow grease to achieve better results than Mothers.

Hope this helps

Bombs away for ease of use on the rims, way way easier to remove unless you use the white flour trick, then its only slightly more trouble but add in a little more clean up do to all the power on the floor and dust on the bike.

Mothers billet on everything else.

I exclusively use Mothers Billet on my polished tins. There is nothing that even comes close to the mirror finish it leaves, but the rims are a bitch due to all the grooves in them and Bombs Away gives about 90% the same results on the cast metal.
