Re: Rim polish????

I tried alot of polish's but the best Ive ever used and just started 2 weeks ago is ADAMS #1 or #2 wheel polish. This stuff goes on easy and wipes off easy. Made my polished aluminum(spelling) wheels look like mirrors. Stuff is the best in my book.

M.A.A.S polishing creme.. Nu-Vite polishing creme. Either of those two. Nu-Vite is the best chit on the market. We use it to polish the stainless steel leading edges on our aircraft to mirrors. LITERALLY. Mirrors.

Re: Rim polish????

I use "Mothers Billet" but once that runs out I am going to try "Adams"

Oh and nice find on the wheels and tires.

Can you get that Power Ball mini at Auto-Zone or any local store or do you have to order it offline kind of like Adams? Getting one wheel polished up doing it by hand feels good after you see the results but its gets old after that one wheel. lol
