spent about 6 hours yesterday polishing the wheels. the guy who previously had them hadnt cleaned them in a while. im very happy with the outcome of how they look. wheels are 20x12 weld racing dakar f1's and the tires are 37x13.5x20.. 36x15.5x20 mtz's coming soon. i hope these pics are smaller.

Looks pretty good, but you just reminded me why I'll never own a black truck or polished wheels.....

polishing those by hand? fuck that......go to the store and buy yourself a Powercone, stick it on your drill and go to town, your arms will thank you

made a huge difference on my wheels

yea 5th set since ive lifted it. ive had 7 total though. anyways i bought the new black magic cone and it worked for a little bit, but the tips got too dirty and started leaving black residue on the wheels. and i was tired of messing with it, so i just started using my hands.

I don't think they look terrible. My buddy has em in 18s on his Dodge and I think they look a little better in that size.

the black residue...is what is suppose to happen when burnishing aluminum.....
lol, i was thinking the same thing, it's not dirt man, thats how it works, says so right on the back of your bottle of polish

after polished while it's still wet is when you wipe it off with a soft cloth
