    Mothers polishing cone with 3m aluminum restorer and polish. Wax with your choice of waxes.

    i tried mothers aluminum polish on my torque thrust 2's and it wasn't coming up the best so i switched to autosol and it did wonders with the power ball. some spots you have to get by hand cause the power ball or cone just can't do it properly.

    I've had success with a powercone and Mothers mag and aluminum polish.

    To keep the shine, Blackfire metal sealant worked great. I currently have Colinite 845 on my wheels. It's held up great too.

    There used to be some stuff that looked like pink cotton candy that worked good on polished aluminum. Can't remember the name of it though.

    Thanks guys !!! , I do know the trick using corn starch powder to remove the polish residue . Was looking for something like Zoops , they use a cleaner , polish and wax to keep the rims very shiney for longer periods between cleaning

    I think I found it. X-Treem metal polish. It's been a long time but I think that is it.
