Just finished polishing the rear wheel so I thought I would pass along my thoughts. What a pain! Took off the saddle bags for easier access and went to work~ 2hr later, I was amazed. I took alot of elbow grease but was well worth it. Up close the wheel still looks like aluminum, but from about 2 feet and beyond, I would swear it's chrome. Oh yea, I couldn't find any Mother's at the parts house, so I bought Meguire's Blue Magic, very satified with the results. Next time I'm going to get a polishing ball, should make the job much easier.
