If you ever get into the resto thing, oxalic acid (wood bleach) is the best thing to use on rusty chrome. I use a plastic tote for a dipping container (silverware tray/drawer organizer for rims), so that I have a lid to put back over it. I usually leave things 24hrs. Using this method completely cleans any surface of rust and doesn't scratch.
