    I'd just take them off in the winter and run the stock for winter wheels and tires. No matter what you put on Pro Comps they are going to pit like crazy whether they are chrome or polished.

    Would centrifugal force pull it to the outside of the rims?

    There is a product called luster pad. It is similar to never dull in the fact that is is in cloth that you tear off. My brothers and I use it and have for years. After you get the wheels polished they make a clear that you put on it. It is similar to a liquid wax. It will keep them from water spotting and lasts a few months per application. It doesn't matter the make of wheel any polished wheel pits. With a little work once or twice a year they will always look new. The polished pro comps I have now are actually pretty easy to care for . The stuff works great but it does involve a little work on your part. Thats why most people only have nice looking polished wheels for one year !!!

    Good luck , shaun
