wash the exhaust tips?

what should I use to wash the exhaust tips on my e93? Is it safe to use a wheel cleaning solution?

Thanks.

Keep them waxed and just use the car wash soap and water.

any1 tried using CLR home cleaning product to get the black soot off the chrome tip? I might try it next time I washed the car.

0000 steel wool with wheel cleaner. Follow up with metal polish then apply wheel sealant to make your life easier.

I recently did it with Turtle Wax Chrome polish and worked pretty well.

Wow, this question gets asked a lot! #0000 plus Mother's Chrome Polish. Alternatively, Nevr-dull wadding polish. Both work well.
