    Eagle Alloys question

    alright i have a set of 16'' eagle alloy 5 spoke wheels on my car... and i cant get them to shine up too well...
    does anyone know if these are clear coated and i can strip it off? or so i just have to buff them for hours to clean them up?

    well so far ive tried a mothers ball... but i only have the big one so it was a little tough to do... but i bought a smaller one a few weeks ago, but the car went in for paint so i havent had a chance to try... but ive tried basically all the polishes you can get at parts stores by hand... did the liquid ones with the mothers ball, and the best results so far has been the mothers billet in the can with the mothers ball... but im gonna try the small one and the billet sometime soon... like hopefully this weekend... and see how that goes

    well thro that powerball in the trash its only use is for finishing your polishing. . the last step. you need to use some jewler rouge on there. id just get that kit and play with all of the buffs and see what works the best then finish with mothers polish the one wheel (lol) i have finished polishing so far now looks chrome and mine were/are naaasty. . . look like gray wheels with brake dust in the corners.
