I guess I’ve never tried stock wheels since I usually have aftermarket wheels, but I have polished aftermarket wheels. It wouldn’t be any different. Use a good high speed tool, I use an adjustable speed die grinder, several styles of buffs, and a couple different buffing compounds. Work your way up from the rougher buffing compound to the polishing compound. Don’t mix the buffs with different compounds, use one set of buffs for one compound, and another set for the polishing compound. It’s a lot of effort and time, but they can turn out nice. Oh, and wear a mask and safety glasses.

If you have nicks, scratches or gouges it will be substantially more work to make them perfect, but its doable.

yup. wenol is a very good compound if the wheels arent too beat up. i also used very fine steel wool and mothers mag polish. it can REALLY shine if you get an attachment for your die grinder or drill too
