Is there any harm in using this product? Should I toss it and grab one of the othe products above? Thx
Chrome wheel cleaners can be acid based and will stain your painted or clear coated rims.

Cleaning chrome over any other metals is much different. If you want to use what you have, mix that with water one part cleaner to ten parts water. This will dilute it to the point that it will not harm your wheels

Its Going To Cost How Much???????
