    I need some help or advise on sanding the wheels to take out corrosion. I have been using Mothers Billet polish but that's not cutting it enough.

    Anyone here that has done this

    I have wet sanded my wheels and it’s allot of work. Start with a rougher grit and work you way up to fine.
    I started with 400 and worked my way up to about 3000 grit. It’s a lengthy process but doable

    Also it goes without saying but your going to want to remove the wheels from the bike to get at the hubs and the hard to reach areas

    I used white diamond and the mothers powercone. I also used a air die with polishing wheels on really bad areas

    Just ordered Blingmaster, never heard of it, but will try. Liked on the video about it can dry, and wipe off still shine. That is the only thing I do not like about Mothers.

    thanks for the replies, I used 1500 grit and got the majority of the corrosion out. I am still polishing with Mothers Billet to finish, its going to take a while.

    Like paul said.. very lengthy process.. and yeah its a wwt sanding deal. And engine is one thing, but wheels are a didferent ball park. I have yet to see a polish thatll take coorosion and whatnot off. Good luck

    It’s always better to start out with 2000 or 1500 and go lower if the pitting is deeper rather than starting heavy and maybe it wasn’t needed

    When you are done sanding, grab a polishing set from HF that has cloth wheels and cones. A little fine rouge and your wheels will look like chrome. Jmo.

    I agree.. I had to sand down some rims on a k9 I got for a buddy here locally.. it was horrible.. I started with 1200 and worked up to 3000.. slow and easy and parallel with the rim lip on the dish and parallel with the spokes. They looked chrome when I was done
