Looks so real and the wheels are a perfect match to the rest of the trailer.

I shined up one rib. Does that count? I think it will all polish up but it's going to take forever. I would bounce those new steel excavator teeth off of it a few times and leave it the way it is.... But then again I'm lazy.lol

Hey, I have a question. I found an old Alcoa wheel at an abandoned logging camp recently. It's got a small crack in it and its badly worn on the bead but I want to shine it up and hang it on the shop for a hose holder thingy. It's quite ugly so what should I start out with? Is there a cleaner that will take off some of the crap or should I just start sanding? PS, I hate polishing...

Honestly when I received it and was looking up and down the aluminum I was pretty impressed already with the finish but I won't be satisfied until I need shades to fill her up!

you have a redi mix yard near you? if so see if you can get some
acid from a driver. it will bleach the rim white. then start scrubbing.
i use grey matter with a red scotch pad and a orbital sander follow by a
grey pad till smooth and shiny....... But thank god the wash guy uses acid
so i don't have to bust my a$$

Acid! I'm gonna stick with what I know has worked for me in the past Mother's aluminum polish that I get from the local hardware store. Either I do it by dremel with cotton polishing wheel and rouge compound. I have a larger electric motor and polishing wheel but don't want to use on the trailer...only has one speed and when you loose grip of the part (tends to happen handling smaller pieces) off it goes like a bullet! Often damaging the corners of the piece

cover looks good.
I'm in road salt, blue stone dust, cement powder
and sand all day. it beats the **** out of the rims and trailers unless you
buy the clear coat that Alcoa uses on there rims and alumabrite finish trailer
then you can just use soap and water and a spray wax
