I just got some Blue Magic polish this weekend and it seems to do a very good job. In the past I have also used Mothers and had good results.

Both should be avalaible at most auto parts store for about 4 or 5 bucks a peice depending on the size.

I use Mothers but after a long hard winter, I have a rouge polishing kit that I hit them with in the Spring that brings them back to new.

eagleone NEVERDULL is good shit. it comes in a tin can, it's a sort of cloth/cotton material, you rub it on, let it set, then wipe it off w/ a towel. it's not too expensive and it does a good job. i'm sure there are better products, but they also cost a shitload of money! peace, wes

I am not a big fan of neverdull,its the same as extreme,but cheaper. I have tried probably every polish there is. I have owned a set of Boyds (before they changed the name to B.Coddington) Billit Speacialties,and Budniks. The best IMO is the cheap $3 can of mothers you can get at autozone.
When polishing,I usualy spend about 1 hour per rim.

that's the stuff that i use on my Intros...it is a pain in the ass though to get them back to a nice shine...maybe that's why the only get polished once a year!

I used to polish my rims every other car wash,that way they stayed clean and you didnt have to work as hard to get them shiny again ;)

Blue Magic as said before (get mine at Kragen). Here's the tip...Once you rub the blue magic on the wheel, sprinkle some corn starch (yep for cooking) over the blue magic. Now, rub clean with a clean cloth and check it out. If ya don't believe it, do one with corn starch and one without and check out the difference. Do it a couple of times per wheel if needed. After all done, you can use a coat of car wax to help prolong the intervals between polishing. Been doing this to my Weld's for years and they still look good. Actually got the tip from Weld Racing themselves a few years ago. Good luck to ya.

I wash my truck/ rims with Simple Green, clean then off, dry them etc. and then I use NEVR DULL to polish them. I like it, seems to work pretty good.

I have some 15x10 convo hellcats high polished aluminum clear coated rims and I have never polished them. I used the eagle one rim cleaner they sell at walmart its orange colored. Centerline recommended I use it on those rims. It works good and shine like chrome when I'm done. They are in the junk yard still on the truck.
