my rims are getting rust on them

They are steel. so its a given. Ive used the eagle one stuff in the aluminum can and it works, but takes forever. would the powerball work on them? what product to put on the powerball? and finally, any way to keep them from getting rusty?

once they get rusty its a lossing lossing battle. best way move up to alum wheels or dismount and take them to a powder coated should run you right around $50 a wheel to get a nicer powder coat on it

Power ball sucks! I have one, and I'd give it to you if it was fun to throw around the garage. biggest waste of money ever. Eastwood sells better polishing equipment for about the same amount of money.
