    hptech1,

    Try using a "clay bar" before you go to any mechanical means on polishing. Then use a good Mag wheel polish.

    You might be able to get away with a loose cotton wheel and some white compound.. A little more aggressive approach would be a sewn wheel and some brown followed by the loose/white combo.

    Are they currently clear coated or anodized? If so, you'll need to strip 'em before buffing.

    Check out the online buffing manual for tips on procedures...

    Good luck!!

  • Polishing Aluminum Alloy Wheels? Update After & Before

    I'm a Newbie, to the Caswell site. Very well done informative site. I can't leave.

    I have some 17" American Eagle 077 polished wheels. They have a milky gray haze from I presume going thru the car wash.

    I want to bring the lustre and shine back to them. What kit should I purchase to do this? There are two kits I noticed. One involves sanding and stripping and the VHT compound. The other just involves polishing with the Brown & Black bricks Sisal and White polish.

    I just want some hints and tricks from the experienced polishers on this forum.

    Thanks in Advance Kevin
