Yeah, I need a product as well, but for chrome, that I can find locally. Like at an auto parts store. Everything I find as well is for tires, or I dont trust it. My rims are painted chrome, so I think there is a clearcoat on them.

Wenol is by far the best polish.

WAIT!

I missed the flat black part. Wenol is NOT going to shine that flat. I doubt there is anything you can do to make them shine unless you have them powdercoated or painted shiny black.
