How To Polish Motorcycle Wheels
There’s nothing better than knowing how to polish motorcycle wheels for keeping your bike looking sharp. Dirt, grime, grease, and salt from the road coat your wheels after a long ride. Get rid of dullness, and have sparkling chrome or a fine aluminum sheen by following these instructions. The wadding metal polish recommended here is good for chrome and aluminum wheels, both.
To polish your motorcycle wheels, you will need:
- Liquid dish detergent
- Dish brush
- Bottle brush (optional)
- Clean rag or towel for drying
- Cleaning gloves
- “Nevr Dull” wadding metal polish
- Microfiber cloth
- Move your motorcycle to an outdoor area with access to a hose. Fill the bucket with warm water. Squirt in some liquid dish detergent. Swish the dish brush vigorously in the water to make some suds.
- Scrub your motorcycle wheels with the soapy water on the brush. Get in between spokes and tight spots with a bottle brush.
- Rinse wheels thoroughly with the hose.
- Dry off the wheels with the clean rag or towel.
- Pull on your cleaning gloves.
- Open your wadding metal polish. Pull off a bit of the treated cotton wadding with your fingers.
- Rub the wadding on the wheels and rims to polish them. Rub harder and faster on areas that look rusty or dull.
- Discard the wadding once the wheels and rims are all rubbed.
- Polish the wheels and rims with the microfiber cloth to get a brilliant shine that will get you noticed.
Tips and Warnings:
- The metal polish has a strong odor, so have lots of ventilation.
- Use disposable gloves for convenience.
