chrome wheels in the winter

Whats up guys i wanted to know what some of you do to take care of your chrome wheels during the snowy winter months. I was thinking plasti dip but i was curious if it would stick and how well it would protect my wheels from the salt.

I should add that i dont have a garage to store the car and a new set of wheels and tires are out of the question for me right now

Put some wax on them and don't let grime sit on them for extended periods of time and they should be alright.

I don't drive that much but I just use a good degreaser and every other weak a good aluminum polish. I don't drive enough as my Stang is a play car. Never had let it go enough to have any brake dust accumulate.

Do you use traditional turtle wax or is there a specific wheel wax?

On chrome I use the same wax as I do on the rest of the car. If they do haze use the turtle wax chrome polish (or whatever it's called), it's a little green bottle that is only like 4 bucks.
