Wheel polish

I have a set of wheels and they would look great if I could make them shine. The ring on the out side is dull and staned. I know theres away to bring them back to life but i dont know how. Can someone help.


1991 Ford SHO- All stock for now...

That MF'er is prolly so fast it would be like riding a big giant can of rape named bubba just outta prison set free in a girls college dorm.

Yeah, that Mother's product works awesome. But make sure your wheels aren't clear coated. If they do have clear coat on them, it may be better to use a cleaner wax on them. Just do a small test spot with the Mother's wheel polish, if your applicator turns black then they are not clear coated.

Oh, and clean those wheel wells!

Ive never had any luck with mothers when it comes to polishing wheels that are pretty bad off.
Eagle One Never Dull is the shit! It works awesome!

Damn....I couldn't imagine polish 2-3 times per week. I polish mine 2-5 times a year. I have had these wheels 11 years . About ten minutes per wheel from start to finish.

Never Dull is already soaked in apicating cotton. You just open the can, rip off a piece of the thick cotton and start rubbing the wheel. After applying, buff with a soft cotton rag and your done.

If you want a deep nice shine go to Walmart and find this stuff called MAAS polish. Its over by the kitchen cleaning stuff, right next tot he Brasso and the Tarn-x. This stuff works wonders. Its a pink paste and its non-abrasive. I've used it all kinds of different metals/alloys and I've never been let down....
