Thumbs up Wheel Polish Options

I have the sport rims, as seen in the picture. Are these considered alloy wheels around the outer lip of the wheel? I was going to use a mothers mag polish for alloys. Also has anyone used the mothers power ball and is it worth the $24.

I just bought some metal polish from the local hardware store and used a couple toothbrushes and some microfiber rags on my I30's (had mad brake dust residue) but it was a bite to clean em....theyre those freakin 5000 spoke deals. Took me 45 minutes on one wheel. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong? haha

I went to the local BMW dealership and happened to ask the same question. They said go to your nearest truck stop and use Big Rig chrome polish ! it takes the worst stuff off. But instead of using my normal hand method just as we all do I recommend the Powerball A++ !

I love the powerball. Before you start polishing your rims, you NEED to know what the finish is. Are they clear coated or not? If you polish clear coated rims with the wrong polish, then it will remove the clear coat. So just be sure that what you're using is safe for the wheel.

I recommend DP Wheel Glaze. Really gives the wheel a shine, good protection, and has cleaners in it.

4200 miles/91 coats of chrome polish on the rims. I do everything by hand. I will wipe out the rimes every 3 miles max (inside as well) and they of coarse remain spotless at all times
