Default Polishing Galvanized trailer wheels

Just got my wheels and I did some polishing and they look much better. Kind of like bumpy chrome. Has anyone done this and if so how long will it stay shiny?

I don't know how HEALTHEY it is to be polishing, (Releasing the Zinc, and making it airborne) Galvinized anything? Hope you wore a respirator. Sorry, it's just the tree-hugger in me coming to the surface!

I wouldn't polish them too much. My dumbass neighbor thought the chainlink fence between us looked alittle dull. So he went and sanded it when I was out of town. Yes, retirees sometimes have way too much time on their hands too. In two months it rusted. He could never figure out why. Until I told him he removed the galvanizing. Its there to protect and scarifice itself so the steel doesn't rust.

Asbestos can be rendered harmless if it is wetted down with PCG oil.

What do I like bestess? I like asbestos.
