Smile Cleaning Wheel Spokes.

My V-Star's front wheel spokes are showing a little bit of black pitting (no rust). Is there anything I can use to clean these with? Some people have said to me that you can't clean them because once they are cleaned, say with steel wool, they will then start to rust. I understand that while the rim is chrome plated, the spokes are not. I live by the Altantic Ocean so salt is always a problem for me.

Just about any kind of metal polish, then coat with a good wax or sealer. Have not tried it yet, but heard good things about Masters
