Polishing Wheels

I am wondering how many of you have had your wheels polished. Did you do it yourself or have it done. Mine are dull looking and I'd like to spruce things up a little.

Checkout Wallmart for Mothers Foam Polishing Cone (used with your drill) and Mothers Aluminum Wheel polish. Or, ask around at a truck stop for an enterprising person. I have done both and prefer option two.

Polishing Wheels

Mothers ball works great, al lasts much longer than it looks like it would. I use a liquid polish, you can pick it up at truck stops.

One caution, be sure the wheels don't have a clear coat.

When you are done, about 1/2 hour per wheel they will be like mirrors.
