Alloy rim restoration2004
I have just purchased a Holden Commodore (Chevrolet) Station Wagon which has very stylish factory alloy rims. Problem is they look really old and it appears as if they have had some sort of glossy finish on them when new, which seems to have come off in places leaving a corrosion-like pitted effect on the rims.
Would a mild abrasive paste be advisable, or is there a professional service that can restore them to their original glory.

Hi Peter, Take it to a Professional polisher, although it could be cheaper to buy new rims. They probably had a coating on them which you have to remove before you polish the Alloy, not a job to do at home unless you are retired.
Trust me I have used 14 tubes of Autosol [linked by editor to product info at Amazon] on a Bultaco motor and rims.. Cheers Luke in OzLuke Speer
