Polishing Eagles

Well I searched this forum and couldnt finda anything. I have a set of Eagle alloys 186 series and was wondering what the best way to polish them would be. I have mothers wax so far. Thanks in advance.

Bosche (sp?) Aluminum Polish...

Do you have a Pilot Travel Center close by? They carry it. Or goto any close truck stop and they should have some really good wheel polish.


That is what i would recommend. Some say Wd-40 and 000 Steel Wool.

I sprayed Meguire's wheel cleaner and let it soak for about ten minutes, took a scrub brush to em, pressure washed them off, sprayed it with meguires again, let it soak for another ten minutes, and pressure washed em again. Came out like new. They were American Racing Baja's.

no i did it on a chilly day in the shade. I believe they are clear coated cuz the outside is clean, like new. The insides have some hint of rust it looks like.
