HELP...Polished Wheels suck...

I can only get the lips to shine on my Torq Thrust II's the inner wheel I guess has baked the grime on them? Any helpful hints? I have tried mutiple products, but nothing seems to work?

Good old fashioned elbow grease and your product of choice. I've used the Mother Power Ball with success, you may want to give that a shot. If all else fails, give me a ring and I'll check them out for you.

I had really good luck with the mini powerball and some 3m buffing compound then go back over it with your choice of polish.

Go over it with mothers real good and then call discount tire and get some Xtreme metal polish and go back over it with that. You will think that shit is chromed when you get done with it.

Then use xtreme and it will get all the scratches out that the mothers left.

I always used mother aluminum polish on my Boyd wheels, and it worked great, I never had any problems, they always looked amazing.

hey... i have polished rims too (what a mistake). it looks shiney after a wash but when u get closer u can see the very faint scratches... would that "xtreme" thing make it look better? and where can i get this 3m rubbing compound?

I use mothers for badly tarnished or scratched metal because it is coarse. Then I go back over it with xtreme. IT's finer and really brings out the shine.

I used mothers aluminum polish and power ball on welds, mofos looked like a mirror when I was done. I left the polish out in the sun by accident, when I opened it it was liquid ...It made it easier and qiucker though
