Well, there is a truck stop in Eloy that is always advertising. Last time I was by, it was 10 bux a wheel.

Or you can get some Flitz https://www.flitz-polish.com/?leadso...roducts|pmt|b| and a power ball

Don: that's a pretty good price. When I changed to Alcoa wheels on the Dutch Star I paid $35 a wheel and that was off the rig and no tire mounted yet.

Today we had 4 alumnium rims power polished by Alfonso from Big Boys Aluminium Polishing.

$5 per rim

You need to find Speedco Truck Lube in Eloy, AZ. With your back to Speedco you cross the road and end up behind Restaurant Golden 9. That is where Alfonso's outdoor operation is located. There is another polishing setup about 100 yards closer to the I10, but they are not as cheap.

Super result. Took about 20-25 minutes.

I would come here again without a doubt.

Wow, almost worth the price of fuel just to get there
