    Meguiar's Quik Tips Video Series - Quick and Easy Wheel Polishing

    We are proud to announce the 3rd of several new Quik Tip Videos for 2011 !

    Quick and Easy Wheel Polishing with Meguiar's Wheel Polishing Kit featuring the DynaCone.

    After viewing the video clip you can scroll down for a step by step refresher, complete with still images shot during the filming of the video.



    Please keep in mind that this video, and the others in the series, are not designed to be definitive how to guides but rather, as the name implies, Quik Tips that address the most common questions and mistakes associated with each topic.



    _________________



    Polishing your aluminum or chrome wheels can be a dirty, messy and often a time consuming job.

    And sometimes, simply choosing the correct polish to use can add confusion.

    To solve these challenges we've introduced Meguiar's Brilliant Solutions Wheel Polishing Kit.

    This kit eliminates the effort and confusion while creating a mirror like shine quickly and easily on all uncoated, polished or chrome surfaces.





    Start by washing and drying your wheels thoroughly to remove all loose debris.

    Attach the Meguiar's DynaCone Polishing Tool to any drill.



    Apply a small amount of the included Meguiar's All Metal Polish directly to the DynaCone Polishing Tool.



    Begin polishing with a slow speed, and gently work the polish on the surface.





    The unique DynaCone shape allows you to easily work on many different shapes and angles.





    Continue polishing and reapply All Metal Polish as needed for maximum shine.



    Remove any remaining residue using a clean microfiber towel to reveal mirror like results.







    Now that your wheels are like new again, it's time to clean and store your DynaCone Polishing Tool so it's ready for the next use.

    Simply remove the DynaCone Polishing Tool from the drill.

    Apply approximately 1 ounce of the supplied Meguiar's Foam Pad Cleaner directly to the tool, saturating the foam as evenly as possible.





    Submerge the tool in a bucket with approximately 1 gallon of water.

    Begin squeezing and kneading the foam thoroughly to release the oxidation and grime.



    Repeat this process several times until the foam looks like new.



    Finish by rinsing and squeezing the foam with fresh, clean water.





    Towel dry and store in a clean safe cabinet or drawer for the next use.

    That´s great!
    I was wondering if it would be ok to wash the wheels using the Dynacone prior to polishing.

    Wash with the DynaCone? No. Best to stay with either an approriate wheel brush or wash mitt and the appropriate cleaning solution for washing prior to polishing.

    Thanks Michael, didn't want to sound like a noob but it seemed like a good ideia to get rid of some of that gunk before polishing. Now I know better!

    thanks a lot!

    I have 18 inch alloy wheels that are on my new 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS. What is the best way for me to keep them looking great. The vehicle is garaged so I have just been wiping them down every night with a cloth rag and I use a wheel and tire cleaner on them when I wash the car.

    You'll want to at least be using a QD spray, not a dry rag.

    Are they clear coated alloys, or bare metal?

    Drill speeds vary. What is the recommended RPM range for the Dynacone?

    For most typical corded drills you can run them wide open for heavy correction. Obviously you'll want to feather the trigger a bit when you first start to avoid slinging the product everywhere, but once it's worked into the foam a bit, running at full speed is usually the way to go. Unfortunately, it's extremely rare to find a drill with actual RPM settings on it so it's darn near impossible for us to state "use XXXX RPM for this polish, XXX1 RPM for another".
