I've used these with outstanding results. The starting condition of your wheels dictates which one you need to start with.

This article will also help you to understand the process. Good luck.

you can use this stuff above but only if they aren't scraped. if they are scraped first you must remove old pait (if it is polished wheel ) and then polish again and at last paint again with transparent paint.
to see how I do it visit http://www.szr-tarlac.web.1000
