To begin, thoroughly clean the aluminum wheels to get rid of any debris, muck, or brake dust. You should Scrub the surface with a soft-bristle brush and a mild soap as well as water mixture or a special wheel cleaner.
2. Select a polish
Choose an aluminum wheel polish that is specifically designed for use on aluminum surfaces. Avoid polishes with abrasive compounds as they can damage the wheels' finish.
3. Apply the polish
Begin applying the polish to small sections of the wheel at a time. Use a clean, lint-free cloth or applicator pad and work in circular motions to apply an even coat of polish on the surface.
4. Polish in phases
It is recommended to work on a single item at a time with the goal to avoid the polish from drying excessively rapidly. Each wheel should have one quarter polished before moving on to the next quarter and polishing the remaining sections.
5. Buffing process
With another clean cloth or buffing pad, start buffing the polish onto each section of the wheel using circular motions. Apply moderate pressure while buffing to help eliminate any oxidation or scratches effectively.
6. Check progress frequently
To make sure you're getting good results while polishing, it's crucial to constantly assess your progress. This will also enable you to pinpoint any places in need of more care.
7. Rinse and protect
After completing the polishing process, rinse off any residue from the wheels with clean water and dry them thoroughly using a microfiber cloth.
