Whats the trick to polishing wheels

Hello guys I've been polishing my wheels with a powerball and mothers, and I just can't get the results I want. The wheels look good from 20 ft. away but you get up close and it looks like theres still wax on them. When using the powerball do you keep using it till the wheel is shiny just from that or ?.

Thanks guys,
Luke

I use the powerball to put polish on the wheels, then take a microfiber to wipe the polish off.

Follow THIS step by step and you will have the best looking wheels around. I prefer the flour method found towards the middle of the page.
