I have a guy that wants me to polish the chrome on his pull behind trailer. So what is the best way to do this? Using a buffer or by hand? Also what is a good chrome polish you can get OTC because it will be Saturday

Go to your local NAPA store and get some Wizards metal polish also called cotton candy. This stuff is amazing. Just wash the wheel, dry it, then pull a two inch piece of this 'cotton candy' off the roll and rub it until it turns black then wash off the residue. Repeat as necessary.

What happens if there is road tar on the chrome? It won't come off with soap and water.. I don't want to use the Wizards metal polish and rub this crap into the metal/steel.

Thanks in advance

Try a more aggressive wheel cleaner like Sonax, anything safe for chrome, etc or even an APC. The road tar needs to be removed prior to polishing.

Mothers Chrome Polish is what I recommend.

Many true metal polishes are not safe for chrome -- the can scratch -- so read the fine print and test in an inconspicuous area first if you are unsure.
