Can these be polished?

Post by atlsteve on Mon Sep 09, 2013 5:42 pm

Can these be polished or are they meant to be dull. I've seen the exact style wheels shiny but I'm all new and definitely still learning. These have a texture and are clearly dull.

Thanks!

You can polish the lip. The rest it going to be dull unless you paint them with a gloss paint.

You can polish the spokes but you have to smooth out the texture for it to look right. It's a lot of work but its aluminum. Once you polish it, it's a never ending job to keep them that way.

57 is right but I did not consider that as an option due to all the work you would have to put into them.

I don't like polishing smooth wheels. Thank goodness for modern coatings.
