Thought I'd share my results of using the powerball (which was hidden and forgotten in the toolbox for almost a year). I've tried hand polishing with other stuff but could never get rid of the "cloudy" finish. In person the difference is more dramatic, the wheels are polished American Eagles.

I must say it worked pretty good, need to get the smaller one for the harder to reach areas.

Those came out nice!

Oh, and if anyone tries to talk you into to clear powdercoating them, RUN AWAY!!! I am really sick over my wheels because I had them powdercoated clear and hate the results! The wheels are hard to come by so I though I was protecting them:(

Lookin' good! :thumbsup:
I use Mother's mag and aluminum polish on my Weld Pro Stars at the beginning of the season with a lot of elbow grease. It takes alomst an hour per wheel to get them the way I like. After that I maintain throughout the summer with the Power Ball and I would never give it up!
I have pondered getting them plated or coated, but at least with them being bare aluminum you can always get them back to where they started.
