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. DSC_0192.JPG

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.

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

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.

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.
