IVe got a set of Mickey Thompson Classic II that have the simulated beadlock. These wheels are about a year old. Ive neglected polishing these but i do clean them weekly. They have these black spots all over them and what looks like mud stain on 2 of them. They also have what looks like a sligt haze on them that will not come off. Ive tried Mothers paste polish and the Mothers Power Metal with a powerball with no results.They still shine good and look good at a distance so i dont beleive they need any major refinishing just some good products. I just need a great cleaning or polishing compund and some sort of sealer to keep them looking great. Just trying to get them looking better before they get any worse.Any suggestions are welcomed!

Wolfgang Metalwerks Compound ... Fine Polish ... Contours polish ... Contours Sealer.

Use those in those steps, with a lake country wool pad on a high speed drill
WOW i cheked autogeek and thats a $150 worth of stuff. I dont think these wheels are that bad to need that much work. Do you think the metalwerkscompund, fine polish and sealer would do a nice job?

yes ... but also use the contours polish, as this is what brings out the total shine in the metal
I just cant see myself paying $54 for it though. Im just looking to get all the spots off the wheels and get them sealed. This is my daily driver so it doesnt have to have that show car look.MOst guys including one of my friends which is a detailer say i just need a quality polish and i should be good to go. So i snapped a couple pics of my wheels so u can see what i mean. The ring for the beadlock is the most dull. Sorry about the size!

for some reason, those almost look clearcoated.
Mickey Thompson's website states that they do not have a clear coat. I thought the same thing but i had to check before i started cleaning them. Thats why i took some pics because they still shine great they just have spots all over them that just wont come off.
