I've got the king ranch,arcola rims on the truck, and I think they have a clear coat on them. They seem to of lost thier shine.
How and what should I use to get them looking new again?

Treat clear coated rims just like your paint. A little polish and then a good wax job...

Anything painted wheel with a clearcoat, should be treated as you do the paint. If you keep them waxed, it is much easier to keep the brake dust off them.

Brilliant Spray Glaze (BSG) will make them pop.

You don't use much of it and it WORKS. Their Machine Super Wax might seem pricey (~$20/bottle) but I've waxed my truck 6 times, spreading it on really thin with my PC7424XP, and the bottle isn't half empty yet.

It is a good high quality product. The waxes and polishes will last you a long time. Their MSW is great stuff.

Good info on here. One of my buddies hired me to work on his truck in automotive class Once we get done with everything We will probably clean it. His rims are chrome and they look like you spray painted them silver they are so dull What do i do to get them to shine again?
