How to Best Polish Stock Wheels
Have some minor scratches on my stockers and wondering if it's possible to polish out the scratches with a light polishing compound or if it is not recommended? Would also like to know if the stockers are painted or powder coated from the factory?

Re: How to Best Polish Stock Wheels
Should be normal wheel paint.
Depending on how deep the scratches are, it is possible to sand/polish and blend back.
Or just fill scratches with a high build primer and then respray with something like Duplicoat wheel paint.
Or get the aircraft stripper out and take them down to bare metal and then polish to a brilliant shine
