new polished rims are laquered nowadays,you can use normal body wax but it doesnt last as long as specialist wheel sealants,

thats what i was wondering, didnt just wanna lacquer over them incase its ruins my polishing, a trip down to the local auto paint store for some more advice tommorow. i suppose with all the dirt build up and grit on the road the wax would only last a few miles.
cheers for the reply mate.

will post some pics of how i refurbed my own alloys in the near future.

(if i ever finish them):grinno:

I'd like to know how this goes because I need to refurb my polished rims - lacquer is deteriorating and alloy starting to corrode.

Hope you find a good solution!

try bees wax as i have heard thats the best thing to use.
i wouldn't lacqure over it as it won't last and the lacqure might crackel on a polished surface

a coat of lacquer on polished alloys will hold for a while but you're actually better off without
will need to clean with dunno the name for it :uhoh: using a wool cloth like each 2 weeks to keep em bling-bling

Just remembered, a mate of mine was told by a local wheel refurb place that they can get polished lips anodised with a clear finish. I didn't think anodising came out like that - anybody heard of this before?
