I was reading this thread
(Aluminum Wheel Cleaner/Polish - PowerStrokeNation )
and since I was tired of polishing my rims with my Mothers Power Ball I figured I would give Metal Wax a try. I called up there and the person answering the phone was very helpful. I got the heavy duty cleaner and and diluted it down to the standard and medium cleaners my self with some heavy duty stuff left over. I used the cleaner with the yellow gel topped of with the pink quick cleaner on my rims and got some pretty good results and figured you guys would like some real world pictures

Here is the rim on the truck just washed with soap and water before


I was just playing with the stuff used the med. strength cleaner with just the wax on this one.
After


One comparing the 2. Unpolished Front, polished Rear


Here is another rim off the truck so i could get to it better
Before


After (med cleaner, wax/gel, then quick polish)
This took me 9min start to finish including taking the pictures


Exhaust tip. Don't harp on me because its Banks, I had it before i was on this board and I think its a great looking tip.
Before, just soap and water cleaned like all the others


After:
Just the Med. Cleaner then rinse off for the polished stainless (took about 3min)

Turned out really good! The exhaust tip especially.

I bet you could get those wheels looking even better with some elbow grease.

They actually look a lot better in person, guess the camera on my droid doesn't do them enough justice, they turned out just as good as they do when I use my powerball except ini 1/3 of the time

Did you polish by hand? I have all kind of mothers powerballs and cones that always work really good i bet the cone would work really good on those bullet holes

yup, by hand it and it was easier and faster, not really polishing just wiping on and off

Looks good, I was impressed with the stuff too. Very little effort needed, easy on easy off.

Nice looking f150.I miss mine like that so I just picked up a 00 all white one to do a sas on and go sky high.Its just gonna be a mudder though but I would like another one for winter time here also.The height and setup you have is about perfect..I had those same rims as well on my old f150 when it was still that small.
