    I suggest again that you confirm your wheels are not clear-coated before using metal/chrome polish on them. It could damage your clear-coat and peel. It could be disaterous!

    Eagle one has a Billet Polish out that works as well if not better than Mothers Billet. I have used both, and both do the job.

    Is there any way to confirm that your wheels are clear coated. I have stock chrome rims...are they clear coated or just after market rims?

    I'm sorry, I'm not 100% sure on the WS6 rims. I suggest you go with someone elses recommendation that has the same and has used polish of some sort on them. Using a polish, such as Zaino like I do, is completely safe as it it non-abraisive. I use it on my paint, so it should be safe on rims. If it doesn't help, it definitely won't make things worse. However, much like properly treating your paint with Zaino, you require at least a couple of the products for really nice results. Check out their site...you may find some good info there. www.zainobros.com

    Well if they are chrome don't use a billit polish on them. Use something that says it's for chrome. I've never seen a chrome wheel that was clear coated, only polished wheels. Mothers makes a chrome polish that I used when I had chrome wheels and I thought it worked great.
