A while coming back a polisher that is out at the Petro at Wheeler Wide range was showing me that even the Alcoa properly secured wheels need maintenance. Gradually that element will "dry" and tedious. He said that to keep the element "lubricated" he uses a bit of complement feelings on a rag, kid kid child baby wipes the wheels, then element fans a little.

I had a set of alloy car rims stripped a number of years ago, the procedure was heat to 400 degrees for 1/2 hr. then shot blast with steel shot. The heat breaks down the clearcoat. (powdercoat) The shotblasting supposedly creates less stress risers than sandblasting. The surface finish would have been way to rough for clearcoat, but I powdercoated with a color and they looked smooth.

On any aluminum, the best protectant after polishing is Evershield. http://www.stewartsystems.aero/products/138/evershield-2-oz-kit-55-sq-ft

It's a spray or wipe on, liquid ceramic metal treatment that is permanent and very very durable!! I've used it for years, and had the best luck! I polished my Harley in '96...people still comment on what a job it has on it!

If you do decide to try it, contact me. I used to tech-rep the stuff and will walk you through the application.

Eddy, what can you tell me about KBS's Diamond Finish clear? I was thinking about using it to protect the aluminum bumper I have for my truck, after polishing.

Just a tidbit I thought I'd share about reconditioning aluminum wheels. My son found us two 24.5 stud piloted aluminum Budds for our KW front axle the other day, for $75.00 for two. Not only that, but he also located a guy in Tewksbury, Mass. that has an automated polishing machine for wheels that sands them and then polishes them to a better-than-brand-new shine. They were absolutely shot when he got them, but now they have an unbelievable shine, like I said, better than new aluminum, and it was $85.00/wheel. So for $245.00 we have two brand new Alcoa Budds for less than the price of one new one really.

You can bring him an inside wheel covered in gear oil and 25 years of dirt and they will come out show quality....well worth the $85 bucks because you'll never get them that way by hand no matter how much you work at it. He'll do either side for $85 bucks, or both, X2.

I'm sold on this deal. From now on all my wheels will go to him.

Anyone interested in more info, just let me know and I'll send it to you.

Dan before you go to far use a good degreaser thats good for aluminum. You maybe surprised at the results for a lot less effort. I know you asked about a sealer. Heres a before and after of wheels in similiar shape. THis was done using a degreaser called AquaKlean http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/Uploads/Images/95428aee-2721-4b5b-9b8f-18d3.jpg

A while back a polisher that hangs out at the Petro at Wheeler Ridge was telling me that even the Alcoa coated wheels need maintenance. Over time that coating will "dry" and dull. He said that to keep the coating "lubricated" he uses a small amount of mineral spirits on a rag, wipes the wheels, then hand buffs a little.

To me, this sounds resonable but I can't tell you if it actually needs to be done or not.

Dave.
