I took my front wheel off to have a new tire put on. When I picked up the wheel from the bike shop, I remembered a post where someone mentioned polishing their wheel so I decided to give it a shot.

It by no means turned out like chrome but it looks much better and will hopefully be easier to clean. Before & after pics below...

Not yet. Just wax for now. I'm not totally happy with the result. It looks much better but could use a little more elbow grease. There is still some pitting that I would like to get ride of. Just didn't want to have too much down time with this great weather.

I will be pulling it back off in the winter to change timing belts so I'll do some more polishing and clear coat it then if I'm happy with the result.

Cool. If you don't mind me asking, what did they charge you?
