    I have a set of weld rims that haven't been polished in 18 years. That are very dull and a little pitted. Can anyone recommend a way to bring them back?
    Thanks

    depending on the wheel finish either mothers billet aluminum polish or mothers chrome/mag wheel polish then buffed using microfiber towels .after they're buffed sprinkle some corn starch powder on the towel and wipe them down once again

    The wax is part of the cleaning but what you really need is a good spinning dremel I belive it's called for your drill. I did it on my trucks rims and the shined like they were new again.

    Look behind you!
    The approptiate mothers polish and a "power ball" i think it's call for your drill.

    the cornstarch will will polish the rims to an even more brilliant shine and it removes excess metal polish from your wheels making them very clean
