    Polishing Boyd Wheels

    I bought my car with Boyd wheels on it so Ive never seen them out of the box. The spokes polish up just fine with just regular store bought mag and aluminum polish, but the rim never seems to get a mirror finish. The rim is always kinda cloudy no matter how much elbow grease I throw at it. The polish does turn black on the rim so its not clear coated. Anyone ever had this problem?
