"Semi-chrome" or S-100 Total Finish Restorer, available at most bike shops does a great job.

I just tried this mothers and flour trick and it worked great on some Mickey Thompson wheels. Thanks, Dyno

Too Old, It looks damn fine!

AUTOSOL is the product I've used for many moon and have always had great results. I also use it on gelcoat and plastic.

If the aluminum is pitted, you're in real trouble. You'll actually have to remove material to get back down to a good shine. If it's really bad, you'l wind up painting them.

I've heard lots of good things about the ZoopSeal, especially from the pro streetrod guys, but the $ for the kit got may attention big time. I'm going to get all my polished stuff touched up and then anodized or powder-coated. There are some fantastic candy and metallic powders out there now.

Raw polished aluminum and salt water just plain don't mix.
