This is a pretty
interesting product. Luster Pad is a cloth impregnated with some
type of pleasant-smelling metal polish.
The jar shown in the
photo on the left contains a sealed package with a length of Luster
Pad that's about 1.5" wide (see photo #2 below). The
product works by tearing off a section and using it to polish metal. You're supposed to
keep rubbing until the metal turns black, then buff it off.
When you're done with the Luster Pad, you can use the Luster Seal to
"seal and protect" the metal. Apparently, the Luster
Seal can also be used by itself to polish chrome, aluminum, stainless
steel and more.
I unfortunately don't have any wire spoked wheels to try it on (the
Luster Pad is also available as a "Luster Lace" specifically
for use on things like spokes), but it did a fairly nice job on the
bare metal tops of my Bing carburetors, which were pretty much covered
I took some photos (below) to compare...

Here's a shot after using the Luster
Pad/Seal combination. It does a pretty decent job of making the
carb look like new.
