Orange chrome :(

So the guy who had my new to me rims let the brakes ride far too low and now one of the rims are basically caked with brake dust/ rust what can I do to get it off? Water and soap isn't working as well as it usually does when I do maintenance cleaning?

Try a mild wheel cleaner before trying anything to aggressive. There is chrome polish you can buy. Can you post some pictures so we can see how bad it is?

Sorry for the off color it's night time and wanted to make sure you could see the dust

when/if you get it off wax inside/outside of rims to make cleaning easier next time. I wax when when I rotate tires.

+1 on the Coke-Cola and scrubbing sponge. I had to follow that up with a chrome polish though.
