Chrome Lips

Hey all,

The wheels I just purchased have massive chrome lips on them.
Wish/thought they were polished, but the previous owner didn't actually know.

Not a big deal, but I want to make sure tend to proper upkeep to make sure the lips don't flake or damage when cleaning.

Does anyone have specific product that they use?
Any specific technique?

I'm replacing both lips on the rear wheels from a previous issue caused by a very aggressive setup on a non-M E92.

Any help would be appreciated.

Oh, also, the chrome on one of the front wheels is chipping very slightly in one spot. How can I prevent this from spreading? Will the under layer of metal rust?

Thanks a lot.
