Thanks Murray, going to see if I can find someone to polish them, they are not perfect but what do you expect for 14 year old rims.

Those could not have been easy to find! Not a lot of Z16's out there. Very nice!

They weren't easy to find, when they become available you have to act quick

Since 2013 when I bought my car I wanted a set of OME rims. Finally I have a set. I had to drive about a half hour south of Washington D. C. to pick them up.View attachment 15743
The wheel polish that I used compliments of @SN-III worked wonders on my rims. $14.99 for a tube of it at Canadian tire. I can’t remember the name of it. Perhaps he can post a pic of the tube.

Was it Simichrome Mike, black and gold tube? It does work well.

I will pick some up and try it out. Thanks
Oh yes and please never hesitate to contact @Toxix for detailing inquiry,
he has always been of tremendous help for me with "fine tuning" the type of products I now use.
He is on my lengthy "must meet list" for when my wheels reach the Ontario Shorelines ... (only getting 1/2 way this year to Winnipeg for MITM)

That is the stuff I was thinking of Spence. Simichrome does work well though. I have a few new tubes of AutoSol, works on false teeth as well, so I am told.:Biggrin:

Before you use a metal polish on those wheels, are they bare aluminum or have they been clear coated?

It looks like they are clear coated. I am going to take them to someone and have it removed and then polished to remove any marks and scratches.
