F'd up my rims.. What should I use?

I have some rims I bought new and are black chrome.. so I used some chrome rim cleaner on them. Turns out they're clear coated and now they're all streaky looking. It was suggested by the wheel makers after I just called them to use some kind of polish and treat it as trying to fix paint.

What kind of product should I use for this task??

Polishing compound should do the trick

Yep... gonna need to polish that clear out. Probably just lightly etched from the cleaner.

I got some cleaner from you at the last c5fest about 5" tall bottle and it's a light blue color. Will that work or is it too acidic?
