Meguiars Hot Rims Chrome Polish

Has anyone used this? I was wondering if it would get off the crap left over by winter salt. Or is there anything else out there that works really good.

You wheels are polished aluminum with clear coat over them, why would you use chrome polish?

It looks to me that the clear coat has chipped allowing the road salt to eat the polished finish. The only way to fix that is to strip the paint and have them re-coated, unfortunately.
