Car Rims Polishing


My company is dealing with motor parts & furniture handles polishing. We intend to learn car rims polishing. We would be appreciate if you could assist us the following:-

1) How to polish car rims in a right method?
2) What is the right tools or equipment to use in the process?
3) Types of wheel in polishing?

Please advise / help us for the above as we very keen to learn from you.



Need more information for proper answer. What is the material involved? Other than mirror finish, are there areas that do not get polished? What volume of wheels are involved? Do you want to do these manually or automated? Wheel rims are tricky and can be done in a number of ways. More than likely, these wheels are made from aluminum alloys and are subject to material handling problems.
