I use the Mr. Clean magic eraser product for lots of amazing detailing duties but not on the rims, too abrasive and again, they may be coated. The rims are in the 20 something lbs. Not light but strong.
Hey thanks for the heads up about the rag. The only time i use a rag is with soap and water and its the microfiber ones so hopefully those arent too bad for the lip..

Chrome lip clean and shinny: use toothpaste and very soft toothbrush. After cleaning that off, use a sponge with a 'small' amount of baby oil then wipe down with a microfiber towel.

Nice center caps! Glad I could help.
