Re: Finish on Weld Racing Wheels

Mothers has always done the trick for me and I have never had to use a powerball or any device like that. Usually just a couple of hours with the mothers polish will do the trick. Hopefully someone did not use an acid type cleaner on it and etch it. Probably take some real polishing to get through all that.

Re: Finish on Weld Racing Wheels

I made the mistake of using Westleys Bleach White for my white lettered tires on my Weld Pro Stars.
I thought I ruined them.
I posted my problem on here, and the best solution is to get a powerball and some buffing compound, like Mothers Mag Wheel polish.

Took a little time, but came out great, maybe a little better than when I got 'em.

Flitz it or the Powerball.... and LOTS of elbow grease... they'll come out.

BTW, those wheels are Drag lites.

Re: Finish on Weld Racing Wheels

The original Weld wheels werent clear coated,and if they got real bad,you could always wet sand them and start from scratch{pun intended} and polish them from there.I dont know about the new"Greg Weld" brand wheels{the ones with the flush mount lugnuts}.I dont know for sure if they are clear coated or not.
