Polished-lip detail - Rim
 
I want to detail the lips on my rims. Do you guys have a product recommendation????? I figured someone likes clean lips :lol: Anybody use a "powerball" or whatever it is called on the end of their drill? Or just an applicator like you do for wax? Thanks in advance..+rep for detailed responses and/or product links

Here are a couple pics...

I recommend a hand polish with a quality metal polish like Optimum Metal Polish. It does a great job of removing oxidation, water marks, embedded brake dust, etc. If you have any other questions please let me know.

I believe they are cleared Scott...does that change things a lot?


thanks Greg for the product link...so that will work on a cleared or metal finish?

if they are cleared then use what Greg recommended....if not you can use a wadding polish to remove the oxidation

For uncleared, definitely Wenol or Nevr Dull.
If it is cleared, I'd recommend a paint cleaner (meguairs off the shelf) or a wheel cleaner that specifically states it's safe for painted wheels, followed by as many coats of wax as you have the patience for.
