Best Way To Polish - Polished Aluminum Wheels
 
I picked up a used set of polished aluminum wheels for my Jeep TJ, last week & was wondering the best product to use on them to keep them looking nice.

Thanks.

I have the Mickey Thompson polished wheels and I use Mothers polish with the polishing ball.It works pretty good.Even though the ball goes from red to black the first time it still works really well you just have to wipe off after polishing with a clean terry cloth with some elbow grease.:redface:

HOP I would say those are a little more of a pain to do by hand then mine.At least I have a lot more flat surface on mine.I need to polish mine again but even with the ball I am to lazy to do it.LOL :rolleyes:

Never-Dull, and some Meguires wheel wax with a PowerBall to finish it off. Made my old Camaro/Firebird wheels look crazy nice.

Spray the rim really well with Windex and with a Steel Wool Cloth rub it in a circular motion. Make sure you contantly spray the rim with windex other wise if it starts to dry out you will scratch the rims. I do this all the time with my jeep and they look brand new everytime. I use to work at lexus and the detailers there taught me a few things here and there.
