The rims are from my rc nitro truck, which originally came in chrome but i used paint stripper to remove the chrome because i wanted them all black.
two of them came out great and have some shine to them but the other two are flat with no shine. im guessing i may have left the paint thinner on too long or rubbed to hard trying to remove the chrome, anyway i wanted to find out if there is a product i could use that would make these shine?
I attached a photo of each, the right side is the good one.

In my opinion, I think the best solution would be either to give all of the wheels a coat or two of clear, or something like Krylon Fusion Gloss Black. You could certainly apply some type of dressing, but the shine could be uneven compared to the already glossy wheels and you'd have the constant upkeep to have them all matching. I think a $5 can of paint might serve you much better. :)
