If the rust is deep, you won't get it all without removing the Chrome in that area

After cleaning them up, give them a good coat of wax. It helps repel the snow and mud (and water) a little. I spray the backs with a light coat of WD-40, it helps slow the rust and corrosion some.
Just my 2 bucks

Scotchbrite has several no-scratch fake steel wool pads that will do the trick and won't scratch the metal much, if at all. You can find them in grocery stores, Home Biggies, Walmart, etc. Doesn't have to be the Scotch brand: just look in the home stuff section for non-scratch pads.
Incidentally, we use them at the shop for taking the final little bit of sealer off aluminum mating surfaces like block halves.
