Factory Wheel Polish

i was wondering what everyone uses to polish their factory coated wheels... trying to get them to shine a little more but dont want to strip them. all the wheel polishes i can find are for non-coated rims.

do you just use a good paste wax or is there another product that i dont know about.

any input is great.... thanks

I used mothers on my alcoas when they had clear coat, shined up real nice. I really like White Diamond polish now, haven't tried it on clear coat yet though.

You can use the mothers, or just use a good cleaner or carnuba wax on them. You can even clay bar them and then use a drill with a mothers ball and polish them with a buffing compound, then finish with a coat of wax.

a swirl remover would do just that, remove swirls, but you still wanna wax or polish over it. Just think of it as taking care of the paint on the truck. same concept
