Polishing Weld's???

I dont think Mothers power ball is going to cut it on these. Is there something else I could use that wont cause my arm to fall off? Here is a pic of how dull the wheels are.....

I have polished semi truck wheels with a yellow 9 inch buffing wheel and green jewelers rouge. They make the same type of wheel but it's roughly 4 inch and you can put it in a drill or die grinder, same idea as the power ball but much more aggresive. Still a PITA and takes some time but the wheels shine like new when you're done.

I think we have the same wheels! Lol. But I just polish mine good with mothers.

It's about that time again, they're starting to look kinda dull.
