    When I get home I'll get the name of what I use for you.

    Best polish and sealer you can buy that I've ever used

    For my CCWs I use Adam's polishes (Metal Polish #2 to be exact) and a Mother's powerball.

    Whenever I have the wheels off I try to give the hubs a good polish and seal with Rejex to keep them clean. In between polishes I just use a microfiber cloth and some water to get the brake dust off.
