I would like to know what polish you used on the wheels to make them look that good.
Thanks Ray

Hi Ray
Our coach is a 98 but looks to have the same paint. It's also a 36fds. I use Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish thay make good stuff. When cleaning wheels after cleaning do not use wheel cleaner it will take the polish off. I made that mistake. Andy

My preferred method of polishing our wheels, is Little Sisters Truck Wash in Barstow, CA. They have a polishing service right next door that will polish wheels for $10 ea. I will not allow the polish center to wash the rims first. They use acid and I have had problems with in the past with the acid getting trapped in the rear hub cover and coming out later, etching the rim. Luckily for us, we end up going thru Barstow frequently. When I have had to do it my self, I have used Mothers, like Andye, with a power buffer.

Alcoa's own PDQ wheel polish is the best and easiest I have found. Then, use their sealer afterwards and it is good for a year or so.

Easy and works well by hand.
