I have a set of chrome Mark8 spirals, and I use Mother's metal polish and a foam-drill-insert-thing in my cordless.
You do not want to use a brillo pad, or anything that will scratch it.
The chrome is easy to remove by accident, and they will look terrible if you clear coat it.
When I have wheels loose and unmounted, I usually clearcoat the interior tire sealing surface to prevent pinhole leaks, after cleaning up any scars in the bead area from old mounting efforts.
