|3ft||I have the same wheel with the same issue....I am going to start with 2000-2500 grit sand paper and wet sand them, then start the polishing....I think your asking alot out of a polish if they have been that way for a long time.|

|Ibuildembig||I usually acid mine once a year....but with the buschs' sealer it doesnt take much polish to keeping them perfect|

M/T Classic II and Classic Lock wheels are not clear or powder coated. This means that the end user must maintain their wheels to preserve that “out of the box” look. There is no warranty on the finish on M/T Classic II and Classic Lock wheels, so it is important that you take the time to keep your wheels looking good. The follow procedures will help you.
Only wash your wheels with mild soap and water, then hand dry with a soft towel. Some commercial wheel cleaners and soaps, both for home use and at car washes, use acid or caustic chemicals and will damage the wheels. Wash as often as needed to remove brake dust and road dirt and grime before it accumulates on your wheels.
When you first get your wheels and at least after every fourth wash you should wax them with a wax developed for custom wheels. This will help seal the pores and prevent corrosion.
In areas where salt or sand is used on the roads in the winter, the wheels should be removed and stored until winter ends.
We provide steel center caps free of charge with every wheel purchase. These caps will rust under harsh conditions. However, aluminum center caps are available at an extra cost.
If corrosion has occurred on your wheels there are several off the shelf products that will help to restore the factory finish. Another option is to use 000 steel wool and WD40 to remove the corrosion, washing, and then polishing the wheel to restore their luster.
With just a little bit of effort on your part you will keep your wheels looking like new for years to come.
This is what i got back from Mickey Thompson Customer support. I dont know about you guys but I am not storing my wheels for the winter, My Jeep is meant for moving.

|jcrbn3||do you have to used the acid wash before polishing? the MT on my wrangler look like crap after the winter and want to get them polished up. Looking for the best longest lasting solution.|

|Ibuildembig||Getcha some Buschs polish and make the job super easy|
|10-11-2010 03:42 PM|

Here's the difference between stuff you get at auto parts houses, and the stuff made for wheels
Wheel on the left is raw after spraying it with acid, one on the right was done with Buschs' polish in less than 5 minutes using a dot of polish the size of a half dollar for the whole wheel.

Ok so i used almost an entire can of mothers to polish the wheels and then came back and put Wheel Wax (got at Discount Tire) to seal them and they look much better . Still has some cloudy spots. Lets see how long they look good

Blue magic polish I use it on my bike , chevy wheeles . It works great now being there bad it's going to take some time to get them like a mirror .
nev dul scrachs I used to be real anle over my crome when I was youger ..
A polish kit is nice to have too has many differnt wheeles to get into tight spots use a high speed drill or something with high rpm's take your time they will look better than new ....
Now the bad I dont like crome on jeeps dont look right so I'm with some of theese guy's but I'd get them powder coated not painted
