Busch Enterprises---Metal Polishes---For those with Polished wheels!

I was Googling Aluminum Polishes for my wheels and ran across one that had MANY recommendations and great reviews. Its called Busch Super Shine Metal Polish. Its more of a professional line unlike the OTC stuff like Mothers, meguairs, etc... And the best thing is, its not that expensive! I ordered an 8 oz bottle for like ten bucks along with their aluminum wheel cleaner (an acidic wheel cleaner made for aluminum wheels). Cool thing is they are out of Statesville, NC which is only like an hour away from me

http://www.buschshineproducts.com/

CANNOT WAIT to give this stuff a try. going to pick up another Powerball and hit the wheels hard when it gets a little warmer.





(I ordered one on left)

On a more serious note, glad someone has used it on here. I bet it will do wonders on a powerball. that aluminum wheel cleaner looks like it will do the job too!

I just put it on a rag to polish stuff. I never put it on a ball or anything. I think zabeard used it a few times too.

I love that stuff. I use it on anything that is bare aluminum, it cuts in so much deeper and makes a great shine. It is a bit messy however. I have talked to them at truck shows and stuff. Great company. I think you will like it. It still requires some good work to get a nice shine though.
