    Barkeeper's friend. Removes pitting on metal surfaces without damaging them. It also works very well on de-yellowing old glass and clear plastic (like windshields and lights). Then a spray can of clear-coat should keep em clean for a while. You can find it next to the comet at Wally World.
    I would have said sorry for spilling gasoline all over him, except he burnt to death when I accidentally dropped my cigar on him.

    Consider this move carefully though.

    You might just want to clean off what you can with a cloth and some WD40 because.......once you start cleaning/polishing your spokes, almost everybody ends up doing them ALL 'cause having a few shiny spots here and there looks almost as odd as a few rust spots............and doing ALL the spokes is quite a bit of work.
    Don't believe everything that you think.

    find whoever sells krudkutter products and buy the "must for rust" product. Its amazing. you can use it on chrome or whatever you want. I knock the rust loose with a brillo, spray this stuff on, let it sit, rinse it and brillo it again, then polish! Its cheap and great!
